I've seen Penn Jillette's show (with the incomparable Teller) perhaps a dozen times in Las Vegas. I've also been privileged to be able to hang out with him at The Amazing Meeting and other events. Penn is one of the deepest thinkers I know. He genuinely cares about people, is absolutely hilarious, and is an all-around great guy. This quote from Penn is one of many of his deep thoughts about life. Penn unquestionably deserves to be listed as one of my atheist heroes.
