    I find that evolution is the best proof of God.

    Didn't vote. A reason: I know nothing about Pizza.

    To me a question is, "For this job, which language is best?"

    I guess some people are going to vote on the basis of they love their choices more than the other languages.

      I'm so old that I learned FORTRAN back when I studied engineering.

            There, there, it'll be all right.

            Personally, I like Pascal, even if it's for no better reason than because it teaches good programming methods.

                I bet Pascal is the best.

                    On my job, I use Visual Basic and it does everything I need it to do.

                      Me too. Plus COBOL. (scare anyone?)

                          I'd wager that Pascal is the best.

                              Good programming practice includes understandable and thorough documentation, which can be done even for assembly. I like assembly.
