NO IT DOES NOT

Incorrect. The focal length changes perspective.

As you can easily see in the illustration you provided, the view point was changed between the two shots. The black dot is much closer to the foreground cowboy in the left example. This, and not the focal length, changes the perspective.

So, NO IT DOES NOT!

And the explanation in first paragraph of the illustration is wrong. A wideangle lens and a tele cannot have the same field of view.
