  •  correlation is not necessarily causation (0+ / 0-)

    however, just because the correlation does exist does NOT mean causation is eliminated.

    iow, correlation does not automatically eliminate causation

    consider:

    you are walking across the street

    i hit you with my car

    you immediately feel pain and fall to the ground

    yes, it is possible you coincidentally suffered a myocardial infarction or perhaps, mmm, massive gas pains, and collapsed as a result of that and not the impact of the car.

    it is also possible you have been injured as a result of being hit by the car.

    and it is also possible that, if you coincidentally suffered a myocardial infarction, that it was perhaps triggered by the impact of the car
