I'm not trying to be antagonistic but I will say that there are very basic issues with your propositions that a rudimentary course in mathematical statistics would hopefully remedy. It's up to you to get up to snuff on the basics before proposing something that would change how basic statistics is done.

As it stands I don't respond in whole to your posts because you have most of the markings of a "crank". I'm not trying to be mean. I'm just being honest.

If you are serious about doing actual work then I highly suggest reading through some basic material or taking an introductory course in the subject you're trying to comment on.

So with that said I would love to hear your response and hopefully you'll either prove me wrong and ask for help on how to proceed or provide some nugget of insight that changes my mind. If I don't see that I will consult the rest of the contributors on the forum to see if they think a ban is in order because I don't want your posts wasting others time.

I don't know what you are referring to with "bias". If an estimate is off from the super population value, the issue could be easily enough sampling variability. Then the estimate will always be off if you don't have the full population. In statistics using confidence intervals or credible intervals you can understand the potential coverage of the estimate to a certain level of probability. But if the true mean here was 5, can you recover exactly that value given samples from the following population?
