In science:

Chaitin considered LISP program-size complexity and found that the number of characters required in a program to produce the first n bits of LISP’s halting probability was asymptotic to n/ log2 (number of characters).
Natural Halting Probabilities, Partial Randomness, and Zeta Functions
All three initial ma jor modern programming languages (Fortran, Lisp, Cobol) provided support for functions, albeit sometimes in a clumsy or limited way.
Function Interface Models for Hardware Compilation: Types, Signatures, Protocols
Not only does it support higher-order functions (functions that take functions as arguments) but it also introduced the new concept of a Foreign Function Interface : a way for a program written in Lisp to call functions written in another programming language.
Function Interface Models for Hardware Compilation: Types, Signatures, Protocols
Familiarity: Python (unlike Lisp/Scheme) has a simple syntax that is easily picked up by anyone who has had previous exposure to virtually any other imperative programming language (such as C, Perl, Matlab, or even the shell).
Continuum multi-physics modeling with scripting languages: the Nsim simulation compiler prototype for classical field theory
For example, if the reference machine is like the Lisp programming language, environments that can be compactly described using lists will be more probable.
