Fact Based Or Opinion Based

If you are, indeed, taking a factual position all you need to do is present your argument, show your data, make your conclusion.

It will stand.

If someone can offer data that alters your findings, you change your position because conflicting data has the ability to change the conclusions.

You can also account for the new data and why it is not relevant to the conclusion or show other data of your own that mitigates the seeming conflict.

What you don't get to do is call anyone who refuses to accept your conclusion at face value insane.

Of course your opening paragraph announced that you'd closed your mind and wouldn't be considering new data, I guess I shouldn't have been surprised at the last line.
