You're right! Only slightly more rigorously, those steps can be described as:
"they were found in mice before" --> "your claim is absolutely false"
"your claim is absolutely false" = "what you said is complete bullshit"
.: "they were found in mice before" --> "what you said is complete bullshit"
Again, this argument rests on a fairly narrow and context-free reading of what you said.
That's as close as you're going to get to a retraction from me. ;-)
