Nonsense! Machine code is all you need. If you want
coding luxury, you can have an assembler.

Seriously, your statement is true, but it's a truth that is
misleading rather than helpful. It's like telling a gene therapy
researcher, "If you can't do it with the tools of organic
chemistry, it can't be done."
