Why Python Is The Best! #1
Python was designed to be easy to understand and fun to use (its name came from Monty Python). Python has gained popularity for being a beginner-friendly language, and it has replaced Java as the most popular introductory language at Top U.S. Universities.

~Easy to Understand~

Being a very high level language, Python reads like English, which takes a lot of syntax-learning stress off coding beginners. Python handles a lot of complexity for you, so it is very beginner-friendly in that it allows beginners to focus on learning programming concepts and not have to worry about too much details.

~VERY Flexible~

As a dynamically typed language, Python is really flexible. This means there are no hard rules on how to build features, and you'll have more flexibility solving problems using different methods (though the Python philosophy encourages using the obvious way to solve things). Furthermore, Python is also more forgiving of errors, so you'll still be able to compile and run your program until you hit the problematic part.

At meetups, you can generally network and learn from fellow developers. Meetups often offer mentorship to those who want it as well. There are 1300+ Python groups on Meetup.com, totaling 608k+ members. Thus, in terms of programming languages, Python is the 3rd largest community.
4th Most-Used Language at GitHub

The more useful projects there are, the more likely someone has already built a function you need and built it well, which will greatly speed up your development process.Over 950 Python projects have over 500 stars.

Python is also known to have an abundance of libraries that assist with data analysis and scientific computing. In addition, PyGames is a neat game engine to build games with if you want to make simple games.

~Great Job Skill~
On Angel List, Python is the 2nd most demanded skill and also the skill with the highest average salary offered.
With the rise of big data, Python developers are in demand as data scientists, especially since Python can be easily integrated into web applications to carry out tasks that require machine learning.

~It's On The Rise~
According to the TIOBE index, Python is the 4th most popular programming language out of 100

With the rise of Ruby on Rails and more recently Node.js, Python's usage as the main prototyping language for backend web development has diminished somewhat, especially since it has a fragmented MVC ecosystem. However, with big data becoming more and more important, Python has become a skill that is more in demand than ever, especially it can be integrated into web applications.

As an open source project, Python is actively worked on with a moderate update cycle, pushing out new versions every year or so to make sure it remains relevant.

A programming language's ability to stay relevant also depends on whether the language is getting new blood. In terms of search volume for anyone interested in learning Python, it has skyrocketed to the 1st place when compared to other languages.

Overall I think Python is definitely the best programming language ever.

Yes, I agree with you that Python had become very popular.

python is good but very slow
if only it wasn't slow as all hell it'd be perfect

You obviously don't know how to use Python then. Every Python Programmer that actually knows what he's talking about, would know

1) 99.99% Python being " slower " doesn't really matter. It doesn't affect the speed of your program at all. Good programming is good programming. Don't blame your mistakes on the language your using.

2) With how flexible Python is, you can easily fix it yourself in your program if it truly is making your program slow.

If you want a couple paragraphs explaining in more detail here you go :

No problem. I always appreciate sharing knowledge with others. If everyone shared with everyone, we'd all know almost everything.

Yes, it most definitely is. Everyone from Mitnick, to Hawking, to even O'Leary, all highly intelligent, all very successful.
