Proclaiming himself to have gone beyond atheism ("not believing in God"), magician/bad boy Penn Jillette says that he positively believes that there is no God. The "case" he makes is the same sniggery pastiche of cliches every mildly precocious juvenile at the back of the class in high school has made himself feel big with since classrooms first had backs.
Bolder than most, Jillette admits that his position requires a leap of faith, but he insists it makes a better, freer, more moral life for him. And he says this via National Public Radio (your tax dollars at work).
Jillette is wrong, of course. I'm not saying that he's wrong about God; that's a given. He's wrong in saying that he believes there is no God. He certainly does believe in a god. That god's name is Penn Jillette. His all-trumping devotion to that god is why his universe has no room for the real and living God. "Evidence" has nothing to do with it.
What a sad, bad bet Jillette's playing out. Pray he bails on it, while he still can.
UPDATE: Doug TenNapel interacts much more fully with Jillette; definitely worth reading.
