Umm, no. It means he doesn't have a source. All we have is his word that he has seen a source somewhere at some time that said such. That does not make "He has a source" fact.

For all we know, he made something up on the spot and is hiding behind a poor excuse. Is he doing that? I do not know, and I cannot judge as I do not have proof either way. Until he presents said source, what he stated has no evidence to back up and he probably shouldn't have said it in the first place if he was just going to say "i don't feel like playing the source game".

Besides, do you have any proof for or against the fact that Tommy's study may have been skewed as well? How, may I ask, do you determine the religion of every member of a countries schools and then follow their graduations, not taking in mind possible changes in faith, etc?

It is also interesting that you would back Tommy on such an argument, as you yourself have stated that any study relating to the subject isn't correct anyway.

Your actions contradict your words. See above.
