basically yes. 

you have data (floats, ints, symbols, tables, the data stuff), and
control flow (select, route, until, spigot). i'm pretty sure you can
implement a turing machine simulator with it (at least if you use the
data stuff, and possibly even without).

the discussion only gets tricky if the person you are arguing with is
holding on to some computationally irrelevant conception of what a
programming language infact is, in which case the point of the
disagreement lies elsewhere.
