Quite an essay. It is rather unfortunate, because I would’ve happily saved you the time and effort. It appears you are relying on a study that has been very roundly discredited; not only did the researchers miscount cherry-pick data, cut it oddly to try and improve their statistical tests, they also made simple mistakes in their classifications.

I would spend a great amount of time going through each point in this study, but thankfully it has been done time and again in the years since it was published. Suffice to say that it is essentially a completely worthless piece of research and that the authors are lying to you.
