This is not the post I'm going to write, but it is the one I'm writing.
I recently saw a tweet that reads something like, "Nice presentation on Clojure, but any language where you write 1 + 2 as (+ 1 2) is not for me." Fair enough. I won't hold it against you if you share that sentiment.
What about a language where you write 1 + 2 + 3 + ... + 1000 as:
(apply + (take 1000 (iterate inc 1)))
Maybe your language has something equally as expressive. Fair enough.
But lisp is more than prefixes and parentheses, and you may want to dig deeper into the benefits of all of lisp's characteristics. Fair enough if you don't.
