Actually, I understood you clearly

I understand perfectly well that you think deaths are over reported; you just haven't provided any evidence to support it. You stated that in response to cswilliams' post, which clearly explained why excess deaths indicate that deaths are actually being underreported. You didn't address the issue of excess deaths. Apparently, you don't have any way to explain it.

Instead, you said, "Positive cases have gone through the roof and death rates have fallen or have remained steady." Not only does this not support your belief that deaths have been over reported, it's simply not true. I showed you the data showing that deaths are now increasing after a predictable lag following the case surge that began in mid-June.

You continue to rely on death counts *before* the case surge began, but those numbers don't support your statement about the trends in death *after* the case surge began. If someone said "it's hotter than it was yesterday," it wouldn't make sense to say, "that isn't true because it was hotter last week." Yet, that's the logic you're using. It's easy to see the flaw in your reasoning, but you're choosing not to see it because you're committed to viewing the data in a particular light.
