I was going to ask this in the floating boat thread, but thought it better to make a poll.

I looked it up when writing a question, and it seems to create fair amount of disagreement.

I have voted yes but it is worth pointing out that I have the Wikipedia page for Vladimir Solovyov open, for entirely different and unTWTD reasons, and so have probably been influenced by his idea of noetic comprehension.

You can stop the poll.

I refer you to the following Taskmaster episode, 'A Wind-Dried Puffin', at 11m45s where Lord Captain Sir Bob Mortimer addresses this very issue.

The only thing I know is that I might be wrong about everything else.

I voted no, on the grounds that water is a substance, not an object.

Good Lord! Whatever is it?

Substances can be objects, I would argue that they almost always are; i.e. 'Look at that shiny object over there, what is it?'...'That, dear boy, is a one kilogram twenty four carat ingot of a substance called gold. One of eight hundred put aside as the consideration demanded by Marcus Evans for Ipswich Town Football Club.'...'And did the consortium object?'

Not of that sentence, no.

But if you had said ""I swim in the water". Is "the water" the object?"" Then the answer would be "Yes".

Ah, but the ingot is the object and the gold the substance from which it is formed. As in "Our best striker (object) appears to be made of glass (substance)".

By extension then, molecules are an object and atoms are the substance (as molecules are formed from atoms). So water, being a molecule made up of the atoms of that oxygen substance and that hydrogen substance, is an object?

As long as you are talking about "atoms" or "molecules" in a general sense, they are substances. So substances can be made of other substances - but that does not make the composite substance an object.

To turn it into an object, you have to individualise and delimit it. "Water" encompasses all water in the universe, it is a substance. But "a jug of water" becomes just that specific portion of all the water in the universe - an object.
