I'm a little confused about skepticism. Maybe you can help me out.

I thought skepticism meant not excepting things without proof. Please
provide your evidence that "deities are bogus".

As you well know, proving that a theory is not true is not proof of its
opposite. You have no proof that dieties do not exist, only proof that
most claims of "proof" for them are bogus.

You don't have any evidence for your position, only a lack of evidence for
its opposite. Not the same thing.
