Adam and Eve were cursed because of their disobedience, not because of doubt.

Zechariah asked how he could be sure, and was made mute for a time. Afterwards he praised God. In other words, his doubt was answered. It should be noted that the Abraham, the father of the faith, was also old and had a barren wife. As a priest, Zechariah should have known about that example.

Nothing happened to Thomas because he doubted, apart from Jesus making a personal appearance to assuage his doubts.

The disciples of Jesus were continually doubting. Did Jesus let Peter drown when he was walking on the water and grew afraid? When Jesus commissioned his followers to go into the world and make disciples, were any of them cursed for doubting? No.

It is not doubting, but disobedience that God finds offensive.

Acts 17:11 NIV

Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.

Malachi 3:10

Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.

Those do not speak of a "discouragement of skeptical inquiry" to me.
