False, now it does!

Does "now it does" mean "now it does exist"? That is, "now it is true that a complete English grammar reference really exists."

The problem is the use of "false" there. "False, now it does!" appears to mean "now it does be false!" Contrary to the result of reasoning above.

Context:
A complete
English grammar reference
does not exist!
True or False?
False, now it does!

@oristarA,
Actually, the False is the answer to the 'True or False'above, and the explanation for that answer immediately follows after the comma.

It means "now it does exist." Also, the question mark ending your first sentence should have been inside the quotation marks.
