Richard Dawkins & Lawrence Krauss screen The Unbelievers New York Times bestselling author Richard Dawkins will tour the United States in April to screen his new film, The Unbelievers, and answer audience questions. The evolutionary biologist is joined by internationally known physicist Lawrence Krauss, and at one stop by magician Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller. Filmmakers Gus Holwerda and Luke Holwerda of Black Chalk Productions will also appear and take questions. The film is a road trip documentary that follows Dawkins and Krauss as they make stops around the world, from Australia to New York, to speak out for reason and science. “One of the most remarkable things about making The Unbelievers,” said Gus Holwerda, “was to reveal the Richard Dawkins that you don’t see in public life. He can be a bulldog at the podium when it comes to defending science and reason, but in the film we see him for the person he is, extremely warm and personable.” Several celebrities appear in the film to support Da ...
Jillette and Teller were introduced to one another by Wier Chrisimer, and performed their first show together at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival in August 1975. From the late 1970s through 1981, Penn, Teller, and Chrisimer performed as a trio called "The Asparagus Valley Cultural Society" which played in San Francisco at the Phoenix Theater. Chrisimer helped to develop some bits that continued, most notably Teller's "Shadows" trick, which involves a single red rose. The group disbanded in 1981 after Chrisimer quit show business, leaving Penn Jillette and Teller to work as a pair.

Penn Jillette explains the most expensive card trick ever to Opie and Anthony with video of the actual trick.
“What I have a problem with is not so much religion or god, but faith. When you say you believe something in your heart and therefore you can act on it, you have completely justified the 9/11 bombers. You have justified Charlie Manson. If it's true for you, why isn't it true for them? Why are you different? If you say "I believe there's an all-powerful force of love in the universe that connects us all, and I have no evidence of that but I believe it in my heart," then it's perfectly okay to believe in your heart that Sharon Tate deserves to die. It's perfectly okay to believe in your heart that you need to fly planes into buildings for Allah.” --Penn Jillette

Why does America keep putting Penn Jillette on celebrity competition shows? He is such a *** and so f'ing annoying.
(Thanks to Retna for the (in)direct inspiration. The following quote fits our situation in Namibia like a glove) When I was a kid, politicians wanted to avoid talking about religion if they could. John F. Kennedy couldn't duck the issue, being Catholic and all. So how did he address it? By reminding Americans that religion shouldn't be an issue, that he was concentrating on big things like poverty and hunger and leading the space race. Penn Jillette
"There is nothing I love more than an overextended metaphor." -Penn Jillette. Me too,

Ricky Gervais? someone else? for me it is more a group of people as much as i love Dawkins, and come to love and respect Christopher Hitchens, and admire David Silvermans composure when he is being used as a punching bag by Fox news. it is the figures that bring atheism into the living rooms of normal people like Ricky Gervais, Penn Jillette, Seth MacFarlane. public figures that people have liked for years and the fact that their atheists doesn't matter...these people may have heard that Ricky is an atheist but it doesnt matter. public figures like these help to make atheism less "scary" for the masses, and that is why they are my favorite

Fat man waddles to the lectern, Patting one of his hairpieces. Speaking through his hairy nostrils, He lectures us on Jesus. Jealous of his status, Question him, he'll hate us. Love him in his weakness And his faith in Jesus. Fat man waddles his way homeward, Meditating on his thesis. Wandering the city park, He's looked upon by Jesus. Blind to what's around him, Grace and light surround him In a love that never ceases From his faith in Jesus.     Once he climbed     A mountaintop so high.     When he came down     He was blinded in one eye. Fat man wakes up every morning, Eats his eggs and bacon. Staring out the window dreaming of Journeys never taken. There's safety found in duty. Danger hides in beauty. The bitter life is sweetest With faith in Jesus.     Once a one-eyed man     Walked a desert by the sea.     When he returned     He could no longer see. Fat man waddles to the pulpit, Dreaming while he preaches Of a girl who got away And left him there with Jesus. He knows he wa ...

I would like to see Ken Ham debate Penn Jillette. That would be entertaining.
Earlier this week I heard this story on Radiolab. The main subject is about a pair of mind readers who were famous on Australian radio in the 1950s (20 million listeners famous, supposedly 20 million was roughly the population of Australia at the time). Told partially by the couple's grandson, the grandson and the hosts struggle to guess how the couple did their "trick" of mind reading throughout the story as well as recount tales etc. What I found more fascinating though (and why I am posting this here), is the final commentary by Penn Jillette (of Penn and Teller). I was struck by how he describes is broad terms the mechanics behind of how a magic trick is done, I found a strange allegorical similarity between how he describes that "that there is only one secret in magic and ...that is that you can not have a beautiful secret" to the production behind artworks (which is of course my business)... Just listen, perhaps I think you will see where I'm going with this. I also found it compelling that Penn st ...

“It's fair to say that the Bible contains equal amounts of fact, history, and pizza.” ― Penn Jillette
Penn Jillette, of the famed magic and comedy act, "Pen & Teller," tells it like it is. Penn is a professed atheist. He does not believe in God. After a show one night, a man whom based on this interaction I believe was a Gideon, complimented him, looked him in the eyes with honesty and love and gave him a Gideon Pocket New Testament. Did it change Penn's beliefs? Probably not. But it did lead him to make a video and share it. He makes a profound statement concerning proselytizing.. to paraphrase, "How much would you have to hate someone if you believed in something as big and important as what the Bible says, eternal life, etc. and not tell them?" He is still an atheist, but he appreciated the guy sharing God's word with him.
So this daiquiri factory thing is apparently big. Boycotting a place that makes a rape joke does not end or even fight rape. That joke dies not perpetuate rape or lead to it. Emotionally uneven and mentally unstable cause or commit rape. To borrow from penn jillette, i rape all i want, and that want is zero. Censorship is not how we fix the world. So i declare a boycott of the boycott. If you dont like the joke, dont go there or dont order that drink. Or find some charity the helps women who need it. Dont just blow a whistle on someone else.

here's the question on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire : in 2006 in the midst of being robbed, which magician actually you sleight of hand to hide his wallet and passport and make his pockets with empty. a) David Copperfield b) David Blaine c) Criss Angel d) Penn Jillette. I got this question right by deductive reasoning and rephrasing the question to myself . which magician looks like the most likely to be robbed ? Lol which one is your guess?
Dreamt I met Penn Jillette. I asked him if he could do it over again, would he have interviewed Billy West, or Mel Blanc (even though the latter died in 1989). I was shocked to find out he didn't know who Mel Blanc was.
Lourd De Veyra really has that Penn Jillette vibe :)

There were no athiests before Darwin, but deists. Atheism in a phrase is "I don't know". - Penn Jillette Agnostic is not being able to know. Atheism is do you believe in god? The answer is still too many questions unanswered questions so he didn't know... -Penn Jillette
Penn Jillette half of the magical duo of Penn and Teller was recently on the food network as a contestant on one of the shows. No one probably notices, but the ring finger of his left hand has a bright red painted fingernail. This was explained by him in one of his shows I happened to be watching. When he was younger he was told by his Mamma that hands were important, and their cleanliness and appearance was important as to the integrity of the man. So in answering he, painting this fingernail with polish, he asked her, "Like this?" So out of respect love and the honor of his beloved mother he continues to keep that one fingernail painted in the same bright red nail polish to this very day. It's remarkable how simple of a tribute he has made, and for so few to know what it represents... We all should show as much for our own loved ones. Mike
Anyone know of organizations like Opportunity Village in other cities besides Las Vegas? They give vocational training, job placement services, art classes, etc. to intellectually challenged people. This is the charity that you see a lot of celebrities supporting, such as Penn Jillette on Celebrity Apprentice:

Penn Jillette, is a great example of a Libertarian and an Atheist.

I like Adam Carolla. I like Mark Levin. I like Dennis Miller. I like The Rachel Maddow Show. I like Bill Maher. I like Penn Jillette. I like Joe Rogan. I like Dana Perino. I like Star Parker. I like Megan Kelly. I like Pat Condell. I don't always agree with everything any one of them says, but I like them. Sometimes they *** me off. Sometimes they are, in my opinion, right on the money. I like people who are sincere. I'm able to not meet them on every single point but still enjoy their honesty. It's a shame that many people can't do that.
'Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off's' Florence Henderson: 'Penn Jillette comes up with the darndest lines'
Do you go from "Dancing with the Stars" to "Rachel vs. Guy Celebrity Cook Off?" Florence Henderson, Jake Pevelka (from the Bachelor), and Penn Jillette are on this season. At least it's for charity.
I thought this was gonna be the best season ever of Guy vs Rachel celebrity cook off when Florence Henderson (Carol Brady) and Penn Jillette walked on set. But then it lost some value when Chris Kattan arrived.then got worse when they introduced Jake Pavelka. However, it got much better when I found out Vanilla Ice was gonna cook...but took a hard hit when he revealed he's been a vegetarian for the past 8 years.

Penn Jillette is an Atheist. His words in that picture were Christian-like.
