    Other than in the pelvis, these differences are statistical with a very high error rate. For example here it says experienced physical anthropologists were able to identify the sex based on skull...

    We did - for domestic cats. Knowing that tigers and domestic cats are closely related, this doesn't come as a big surprise: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-00984-8

    Individual regions have much higher rates though - Bergamo province has about 2000/m in official figures and over 4000/m estimated excess mortality - and that's only the deaths in March:...

    Again, like industrial chicken farming all over...

    It's the manner in which they were kept.

    Keeping animals in cages one on top of the other means the poop flows right down on top of each other. That is basic nature and gravity. Then you slaughter...

    No, I want you to not present you supposition as fact.

    You have a science background, right? Just apply basic principles of evidence-based reasoning in other domains too and we're good.[/QUOTE]...

    And you know this how?

    I concede it is a plausible hypothesis, the Chinese authority have been caught lying before. But plausibility is no substitute for evidence.[/QUOTE]

    The number of deaths in Iran and Italy is most certainly under-reported too.

    I wonder if there is any country where this is not the case?[/QUOTE]

    Remember when there were 440 infected (a assume globally) and 9 dead (all in China)?

    Today China is no longer in the top 5 countries by (officially reported) cases - that would be Italy, Spain,...

    That sounds like a great idea. How do you plan to enforce this in China, where many people still live in close proximity to both, and huge numbers of both are traded, live, in busy markets? Live meat...
  15. unrecorded deaths

    Local paper "Eco di Bergamo" has calculated that around 5400 people died of all causes in the province of Bergamo (1.1 million inhabitants) in March this year. That's up from around 900 in the month...

    Are you talking about industrial chicken keeping?

    You either have eggs or sperm. That’s it. A hermaphrodite cannot self impregnate. Nature has developed a constellation of differences based on this binary. You don’t have to like it.[/QUOTE]

    I don't get to decide what age I am, what height I am, where I was born, or the colour of my eyes. Not everything is a matter of personal choice. And given that your sex was determined at...
