The problem is the things you're saying directly contradict what's actually in the books. It'd be like saying, "I thought the first Harry Potter book was bullshit, but I read all 7 of them", then you started quoting Lord of the Rings plot points as evidence that you read the books.
You keep assuming Paulides is right. That's your problem. The reality is that the parks do indeed catalogue all deaths and other incidents, and had you read anything beyond paulides you would know he is blowing smoke.
Moreover, quick internet searches quickly reveal that people actually on the SARS that Paulides references are saying that Paulides is omitting important stuff or otherwise just making stuff up to sell books.
A much better analogy is Paulides is a drunk fictional writer vs a Pulitzer Prize winning history Phd.
Edit. And the death in national park series focus in great deal on people falling off rock faces and unfortunate souls who die from heart attacks. One memorable Yosemite survivor tried scooting down an impassable rock cliff on his butt, and wore away his jeans.
