Is it skepticle or scepticle?

I thought it was the latter, until I realised it would make the c silent. But then I saw my Literature teacher use the word scepticism, and by dictionary, it said it was a variant of skepticism.

So which is it??

    I don’t think either is wrong. You can use both words and still be correct. It’s like how abdomen and torso mean the same things. Most things have two spelling because the english language is made up of so many languages. For example most parts of the body have a greek name and a Latin name.

    LOL! That’s hilarious! Abdomen is NOT the same as torso, dear Elinor.Abdomen: The part of the body that lies between the thorax and the pelvis and
    encloses the stomach, intestines, liver, spleen, and pancreas. Also
    called belly.Torso: The human body excluding the head and limbs; trunk. Namely, the thorrax.

    OMFGLOL, because it’s skeptical. with an "a".

    It is both sceptical and skeptical. Technically, it’s meant to be with a ‘k’. But by now both spellings have become so common it’s easier simply to accept both. I use them both.

    Skeptical, with an A. Sorry, my bad. Force of habit.
