    janitor?
    Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.

    One of the few to have this as a day job, rather than vice versa!

    It's not that I'm not guessing. It's just that I remember from when I set an earlier question.
    ...
    What, indeed, is an atheist? He is one who destroys delusions which are harmful to humanity in order to lead men back to nature, to reality, to reason. Baron d'Holbach

    _____

    If we go back to the beginnings of things, we shall always find that ignorance and fear created the gods; that imagination, rapture and deception embellished them; that weakness worships them; that custom spares them; and that tyranny favours them in order to profit from the blindness of men. Baron d'Holbach

    Maybe a clue?

    Here is a clue

    Although I called it a "day job", for many in this profession it often involves working in the evenings

    So, firstly I'm back after about 2 years away. Still going to hell (according to many) but enjoying the ride.

    Anyway, to the answer, I believe he was a pianist or something similar.
