One said: English is the language spoken in England.
Another One said: English is the language internationally used for
commerce, academics and much else.

Who is 'true'?  Is one false because the other is true?

[Amusing that this is being said at the same time as a necroposted
thread about the multi-meanings of bool in python]

More seriously: Python is one of the first serious programming
languages and scripting languages.
Those who think that one excludes the other are probably learnt their
programming/CS half a century ago and stopped learning soon after.

For many such mis-takes in CS education see my:
