Insufficient Quotations

Any time scientists disagree, it's because we have insufficient data. Then we can agree on what kind of data to get; we get the data; and the data solves the problem. Either I'm right, or you're right, or we're both wrong. And we move on. That kind of conflict resolution does not exist in politics or religion.
Neil deGrasse Tyson

It is wrong always, everywhere, and for anyone, to believe anything upon insufficient evidence.

Jamais Cascio
