Correlation and Causation

New poll shows correlation is causation.

WASHINGTON (AP) The results of a new survey conducted by pollsters suggest that, contrary to common scientific wisdom, correlation does in fact imply causation. The highly reputable source, Gallup Polls, Inc., surveyed 1009 Americans during the month of October and asked them, “Do you believe correlation implies causation?” An overwhelming 64% of American’s answered “YES”, while only 38% replied “NO”. Another 8% were undecided. This result threatens to shake the foundations of both the scientific and mainstream community.

“It is really a mandate from the people.” commented one pundit who wished to remain anonymous. “It says that The American People are sick and tired of the scientific mumbo-jumbo that they keep trying to shove down our throats, and want some clear rules about what to believe. Now that correlation implies causation, not only is everything easier to understand, it also shows that even Science must answer to the will of John and Jane Q. Public.”
