No it doesn't. It's a very long way from implying anything of that sort at all. The above strikes me as being tantamount to protesting that if they don't submit to reductionist analysis, even down to the personal relationships they have with their devotees, they must be some sort of solipsistic delusion (while closing one's eyes tightly and ignoring the thundercloud with the shaking fist coming out of it and the lightning bolts streaming around you).

Or if it makes you feel any better: what if there is a correct answer, but nobody's telling you?
