In the beginning there was Mathematics
And all was good
Then one day God said "Let there be the Lambda Calculus"
And hence the Lambda Calculus was born.
However, God felt the the Lambda Calculus needed a mate
So god said "Let there be Lisp"
And thus, Lisp was born.

As the years went on, god became depressed by how impure the Lisp had
For from the Lisp, came Emacs Lisp, Java, Perl, Ruby, and Python.
