You want a factual number that you will then dismiss as biased or inflated

or whatever. The fact that you believe something that has killed 100,000+ Americans in a little over 3 months is "trivial" or "manufactured" says it all. The fact you continue to dismiss any experts as "alleged scientific community" says it all. You want to be told what you want to hear nothing more and nothing less. It is not about you asking questions. It's about you making up your mind first and then trying to find anything you can to support that preconceived notion. You have literally dismissed any shred of evidence that remotely contradicts your thinking and somehow you think that's a good thing. It is not.

No one is telling you to blindly believe everything you read or hear. But blindly dismissing things is just as dangerous. You're not being independent or a free thinker or a rebel. You're just being ignorant and normally that's fine. But in a case where your ignorance could hurt someone else it's just reckless and dangerous. You aren't changing my mind because you have yet to present even remotely compelling evidence for nearly anything you've claimed that I've disagreed with. It's not because you don't have a title. It's because you don't have anything.

No test for anything is 100% accurate. If that's your bar then it will never be satisfied which I imagine is the entire goal. This is yet another example of you dismissing evidence just because you don't like it or have a counter to it. You don't have to accept the number given is exact it's not and probably never will be. But unless you think it's massively flawed (which you haven't proven at all) then there's no reason to outright ignore it.

If I've avoided answering a specific question it's most likely because I disagree with the entire premise of it, i.e. it's coming from a completely flawed premise or one that has been debunked more times than I can count. In those cases my response would indicate I agree with the crux of the question and I most certainly do not. For example, I haven't answered anything about deaths being inflated b/c you haven't proven any kind of widespread fraud. I can't explain something that doesn't exist and I shouldn't have to.

The long and short of it though is that you claim you want numbers, facts, whatever. But then you turn around and dismiss any of them you disagree with. If you're not going to take something as benign as the number of cases as a valid data point then how exactly is someone supposed to convince you of anything?
