Why is my website so slow now. It worked really great before, but now that I have more than 12 widgets and 5 customers it's getting really slow. I also have these really odd bugs and crashes that I don't know about until some piece of rarely executed code gets executed and some things don't work like I expect them to, especially when I pass a Customer object to a function that expects a Widget...

I would prefer a reasonable language where space/tab confusions don't turn into weird, hard to debug issues. Has a compiler that confirms the code is used correctly before using it and doesn't automatically assume things that might or might not be correct -- should "10" + "15" == "1015" or should it be 25?

Well, a bunch of people wrote a bunch of parts of a manuscript based on stories passed down for a couple of thousand years, which was then gathered together by a bunch of other people over the course of several hundred years to produce a book. Apparently that is all the evidence they need to prove everything.

Also, anything not in said book can not exist as that book is the sole source of truth in the universe!
