The main reason I like the higher mega pixels is for increased sharpness

Well a micro shake on the 42Mpx sensor is unforgiving for the result of an image where on the 24Mpx sensor you can still use the image.

For the same print size, the blurring effect of camera motion is unrelated to pixel pitch.

So saying that sharpness increases with the Mpx is only dependant of the operator.

That is certainly true.

Now if like md you're more often on a tripod than handheld of course you won't have any problem

Well, there is also defocus blur...
