"...really critical stuff..."    Then the only real choice is assembly!

And correct - that's nothing to do with Python vs Java.

Back to the question:
Python has one advantage that has not been mentioned.  It allows the 
programmer to start with prior coding practices and 'ease' into OOP 
because Python happily allows a mix of traditional and OOP coding.

Beyond that - "There is no accounting for taste."  You are on your own.
You see - with daughter #1 I need pencil and paper to explain things.
           with daughter #2 I sit on my hands and narrate correctly the
             first time.
Many things have no "one is better" option beyond individual quirks. Or 
shall we say preferences?  The old - "This works for me" is right one.
