I've been a happy and productive Emacs user for more than 17 years and
still don't edit any Lisp. It just isn't necessary to get things done.

(I hear the Atom text editor is implemented in JavaScript; that doesn't
imply JavaScript knowledge is needed to use Atom.)

With that knowledge, hopefully more people can explore using Emacs
