    He has an inconsistent track record on the reality versus propaganda front, being very pro-reality when it comes to religion, but being very anti-reality when it comes to medical science.  I always viewed him as being more "accidentally right" on some issues but for the wrong reason that he enjoys being a contrarian speaking "truth" to power, even in the cases where "power" happens to be correct and the underdog is full of crap (Doctor Andrew Wakefield and his lies about vaccination and autism, for example).

    But this raised his estimation in my eyes.  Like him or not, giving up 1/23 of his net worth for a cause is proof he's not bullshitting about caring about it.
