Comment 22 by Quine : It would be nice if I had a single term that had a definition that most people would recognize as the same thing as saying that whole sentence, so if you know such a word, please tell me.

Sorry, nothing that would not generate mass knee-jerking... Something gravitating towards Scientist would be reasonable (among skeptic, rationalist, critical thinker, all pretty horrible for light hearted topics), although 'scientist' can conjure up the wrong images to some people. Darwin, monkeys, global warming...

I think your pre-packaged phrase is pretty neat. Any other single denomination would be ambiguous or obfuscating.
