Quite the celebrity.
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.

He seems to have been a relatively decent man who was good at what he did. According to the Guinness book, he's got the "most hours" on American television, though I admit I've probably seen only an hour or two of his performances in total.
