more pixels are better!

or are they?

Could someone try to give a clear but comprehensive explanation of why more Mp doesn't improve IQ?

I understand that more pixels means more noisy pixels, and i've seen that in my own cameras.

But should twice as many pixels give twice the dynamic range, simply because you could sample two pixels for a value with twice the range of a single pixel?

Isn't it a question of whether NR is losing detail that wouldn't be there in the first place with less pixels?
