Michael, I enjoy when you have a back and forth exchange with people, and this is an interesting one.
My two cents:
Evidence is great, but I am wary of what Bastiat cautioned us:
Do not hand over your own authority to an "expert". Do not be afraid of your own opinion. Trust in your own intellect even in the face of a case well made by others. It is called common sense.
In other words: dust off your Bulls--t Meter and keep it in good working order!
