1) Why would I want to downsize a 24 or 16 MP image to 8MP?

That's how Dxomark scores their camera, a source that cgarrad has been parroting for 8 month now (and he ignored dxomark when they scored A550 higher than A500 which he claimed has a better IQ, typical).

2) I already have an 8 MP camera. Wouldn't downsizing the higher resolution image to 8 MP defeat the purpose of having the higher resolution sensor?

No, it won't. You can shoot at lower ISO and full 24 MP, or if you have to shoot at ISO 3200 and up and want the same amount of noise as 8 MP camera, you can downsample the 24 MP to lower the noise. In other words, the 24 MP sensor gave you more options than the 8 MP camera.
