That is just rude!

I'm still trying to understand what is the problem you are having with 
my post. Have you followed the previous thread? Is there anything you 
are not understanding?

People were saying to me that in Python object = instance. I'm trying to 
argue why I believe it isn't and asking for arguments to convince me 

And that's the best you can do?

Python does imply that an object is an instance, btw. It is why I got 
that answer from more than one person. Or so they say.

By referring to an instance of Sub as "Sub object", there's an implicit 
affirmation that an object is an instance.
