Don't forget Python, where even definitions are executable.  Though modern
Scheme is not as static as R4RS or ISLisp, where there is not even `eval`.
(Of course these languages are not static in the sense of static typing.)

The present impossibility of giving a scientific explanation is no proof
that there is no scientific explanation. The unexplained is not to be
identified with the unexplainable, and the strange and extraordinary
nature of a fact is not a justification for attributing it to powers
above nature.  --The Catholic Encyclopedia, s.v. "telepathy" (1913)
