18. Agreed. Another is "you don't understand"

 

Some of us do understand, but find your position unconvincing.

People need to just accept that their arguments will not persuade anyone, or even be persuasive at all.

Another is "show" or "educate" being used synonymously for the words "persuade". They do not mean the same thing, as often the person making the argument is restating a position that the listener has already considered.
