Do you like that Penn Jilette is a well-known libertarian atheist? Do you agree with his viewpoints? I seem to like them.
I was going to say I read God, No! You read my mind. lol
I find him pretty entertaining, but he plays up the shock value which I'm sure puts some people off.
Big Penn & Teller fan here. I especially like their Fool Us series.
I think I heard some man named Jillette on the Hannidy radio show and hear there that he was also on The Apprentice. Hannidy was kind to him (unbelievably) and Jillette was a very patient, kind man...nicer than I would've been probably.
I love Penn! I've been listening to him a lot lately. Although his Penn Point videos are kind of annoying with all of the ads and constant camera switching. Penn is a very gracious and thoughtful guy.
I love the guy. He was a big reason I became more comfortable with my non-belief as well as my "kooky" political philosophies. Christopher Hitchens was surprisingly a fan/friend of his as well, and even featured a piece written by Jillette in his collection, "The Portable Atheist." I knew then that Jillette was an amazing writer, so I'm looking forward to reading his book when I get the time.
I am definitely a fan. I liked him as a child and in the last five years have explored his more activist stances and causes. There is probably no one I have ever heard speak, privately or publicly, whose views on religion and politics line up so closely with my own (besides Doug Stanhope). I have had the opportunity to meet him twice; once at TAM, where he stood 10 feet away in street clothes and hair flying, and once at the Big Penn & Teller Show. I balked because I am cripplingly shy when it comes to meeting people and meeting my idols would just exacerbate it tenfold. I also have a fear that the real person will not live up to my notion of them. Besides, he is a f'ing giant and I am a tiny little man.
I'm quite a fan of the "Bullshit!" show. YouTube has many episodes online, I think it's a clever and insightful show. Even with the shock value, they still make sensible points.
I heard him on Hannidy. Seems like a fun-loving, easy-going guy. I liked him from those 2 minutes on the radio. Hey, Steph, aren't you a liberal? Are you lost?
