Correlation Is Not Causation – Not An Argument!


Question: “I’m skeptical of anyone who says with absolute certainty that A is directly responsible for B. There are far too many variables to say for certain whether spanking a child for their misbehavior impacts the child adversely. Correlation does not equal causation. Just as one should be skeptical of the “wage gap” between men and women, etc. Advocating something because you believe it can be admirable, but using flawed studies and statistics doesn’t make you right. ”
