Discussion on: Functional VS Object-Oriented Programming

It does not help to keep calling FP "declarative".

Functional programming is just as far from anything truly "declarative" as OOP.

Both paradigms are very low level and do not really help to adequately represent the complexities of the real world problems. More declarative paradigms fit much better, but for some weird reason people keep comparing FP to OOP, as if there is nothing else out there.

Ha this is true. Probably, OOP and FP are polorizing? There are a lot of ppl who will really dislike one or the other while less so about something more procedural?

I don't know but you are exactly right.
