doubtful (that something is true or worthwhile)

or more rarely:

generally tending to doubt what others believe
  • I guess finding God is like seeing a ghost—you can be a skeptic until you come face-to-face with what you said doesn't exist.
  • I felt as if I'd been poleaxed, which surely qualified me for medical attention—but I didn't think that even the most gifted physician could cure a skeptic who'd come to see the light: I could not remain as emotionally unattached from my client as I'd believed.
