Now that I've worked with it, I can really see the power of it.  I still cannot for the life of me figure out how it evolved from C!!!

It didn't.  However, it IS written in standard C, to be totally transportable.

See here: https://www.lua.org/history.html

BTW, it's not 'lua' but 'Lua'. On the Lua website, it says:

What's in a name?

"Lua" (pronounced LOO-ah) means "Moon" in Portuguese. As such, it is neither an acronym nor an abbreviation, but a noun. More specifically, "Lua" is a name, the name of the Earth's moon and the name of the language. Like most names, it should be written in lower case with an initial capital, that is, "Lua". Please do not write it as "LUA", which is both ugly and confusing, because then it becomes an acronym with different meanings for different people. So, please, write "Lua" right!
