Kyle,

Read my post again:

"I contest the notion that there is some philosophically correct preference for the rejection of dualism due to a lack of current scientific evidence..."

Your argument is one for a scientific ontology. I'm saying that science is a collection of methods that work best with certain kinds of beliefs, but there are no rules that prevent strange or contradictory beliefs from having success. There are many beliefs that can be success at science. Your philosophy is way too restrictive and assumes materialism is the only philosophy that accommodates the evidence.
