Speak for yourself, not for "almost everybody", or you will going to
seriously limit your potential audience (which might be already restricted
to those who don't care about seriousness of your statements). ALL
mathematicians know CT. All formal papers on Monads touch CT. Well, OK,
I know, Monads and you are two different worlds...

If one day I decide to return back to some religion, I will pray for the
souls of your teachers. How many microseconds have they spent teaching
parallel programming? 

I suggest that you say goodmorning to Google.
