Discussion on: Is C still a high level language?

Next question, "Did Adam have a belly button?"

To me this is along those lines.
The discussion leads no where.
And reality doesn't change one bit.
Choose the language you need/want to do what you need/want.

Someone below was commenting on how C# could be as/almost as fast as C. So what.

There's defintely one thing C# can do that C can't do...

Be thrown in the trash and no longer supported by Microsoft.

If one day MS decides the .NET Framework is "old news" AND they come out with a TNG Programming Structure using a new SeaStar language... they can end-of-life C#.
(Been there done that!)

C on the other hand will likely endure, due to its place and popularity in the history of programming languages.
