If programming languages were religions

I just read a funny article on what religions different programming languages would be. He runs through all the popular religions (including Pastafarianism) and programming languages from C to Ruby to PERL.

In my experience defining Enterprise standards, I've noticed how arguments about programming languages become religious discussions pretty quickly, so this comparison has some real-world merit.

Just a little off-topic, light hearted, and non-PC humour for the Christmas season :-)


  1. wow, it must have been hard to write something so anti-inflamitory while covering so many religions (and languages :) )

  2. well the take in Islam wasn't as 'PC' as I'd like!

  3. I liked it because they mentioned the FSM.
