I am the skeptic of skeptics.
There was a danger that skeptics and opponents would misread those likelihood ratio tests as rejections of an entire class of models, which of course they were not.
Working together during the past three years, we have confounded the skeptics and the cynics. We've shown that here in Virginia, Democrats and Republicans can come together, put politics aside, and make tough decisions when times demand it.
I've stopped caring about skeptics, but if they libel or defame me they will end up in court.
Modern cynics and skeptics... see no harm in paying those to whom they entrust the minds of their children a smaller wage than is paid to those to whom they entrust the care of their plumbing.
The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were.
Scientists are always skeptics.
Yes, believers and non-believers and skeptics can all live together and get along. But there cannot be an imperialistic imposition of religion by the state or by the church. All people must be equal--believers, skeptics, disbelievers, atheists, and those who chose religion.

They got into a passive defense that believed that offense would win it all and the defense got soft. We want to be a hard-hitting defense. What I want is for people to know this defense is tough. If we can come out of this camp with that attitude, I believe we'll be all right.
We live in a world of skeptics, don't we? ... We didn't come into this to prove ourselves.
It's Spring Quarter and in a couple of months we'll be looking for new leadership for the Skeptics next year. We look forward to any new students that want to attend and add to our group because they make it stronger. Everyone's welcome.
[Some skeptics are also convinced that the glitterati get more out of the arrangement than the U.N.] It adds charitable luster to their own images, ... We're talking about some potentially unsaintly stars. Angelina is best known as a lippy home wrecker. Ricky Martin is sort of a hip-swiveling party boy.
Gold continues to defy the bears, skeptics and even ardent bulls all of whom continue to pay little or no attention to one of the most powerful factors driving the secular bull market.
He's had to put up with skeptics from Day 1. A lot of people didn't actually believe him. He was angry about it initially, but he's very quickly put it behind him.
Computer sciences sounded more weighty for the skeptics.
In a strange way, the skeptics are keeping us bullish. When they concede defeat, there will no longer be a 'wall of worry' to surmount.
