This was helpful. This appears a lot in discussing issues with people that are not rational and it is hard to get the discussion to a place where ideas can be discussed rationally. If you make a claim, then it needs to be supported empirically to be useful to someone else. I have asked people that use the feeling argument to explain how they got there so I can see it the same way, and they are unable to.
