I strongly disagree with your arguments. It looks that we have

When conversations go nowhere, it's often because people are
not understanding what the other is saying.

In this case, I see one rather obvious issue (there may be others):

Steve Langasek has said, in essence

"When A says X, and we have no evidence to the contrary,
we believe A".

Your objection, in essence seems to be

"We should not believe X when we have no evidence that X
is true."

It seems to me that both of these statements are reasonable,
and that neither refutes the other.

This could turn into a "standards of evidence" discussion, but it
currently does not taste like that.
