Hm I don't know, if you're not into data science then the argument already becomes less convincing ...

If you want to script/automate stuff, or do web development, then Ruby is also a good alternative, and Javascript is arguably THE most popular web/fullstack language. And what about newer languages like Go or Rust? Learning them will give you power and speed and you're learning something truly new and different.

Data science, yes you'd want to learn Python but learning data science will cost you a lot more time than learning Python does.
