Dictionary definitions vs. real-life usages. See my answer.

comment For body: 身体 or 体
「体 is the standard way of writing it. 身体 is not.」? Perhaps so, according to the Edu. Ministry. In real life, however, many good writers actually avoid using 「体」 because it has a connotation of "flesh".

comment Why do we have to use ている form of 思う with third person subject
You are correct about third-person subject sentences, but second-person subjects also take the ている-form.

comment 「思っているようです。」or 「思っている。」 for describing another person's opinion
Japanese-speaker here. TBH, both sentences sound strange because of the combination of 「Bobさんによれば」 and 「思っている」.  You are, in effect, saying "According to Bob, he thinks that ~~~." Is it OK to say that in English? Even if it were, it would not be in Japanese. I can see that you are trying to ask a good question, though.

The first two paragraphs make no sense. OP's first sentence is alright. It is something native speakers say quite often.

comment Understanding a phrase from a news article
The correct answer has already been given by @snailboat, so I am only making a comment about an interesting feature of this sentence that I wonder you have noticed. It contains 3 big relative clauses, without which we will only be left with 「について」,「は」 and 「を示しました」, which shows us exactly the structure of the sentence. "Regarding A, Person B expressed Thought C." Kinda neat, no?
