My downvote (along with most others I presume) is not about agreement, but about whether you are adding anything useful to the discussion. Argument by repeated assertion is not supposed to be a staple of rationalist discourse. Either it's worth your time to provide some links to an actual argument or it isn't.

Do you really expect points for needing to get in the last word?
