Correlation & causation

I found this floating around Facebook:

Consider also this classic from the Pastafarians:

And of course Randall Monroe reminds us, “Correlation doesn't imply causation, but it does waggle its eyebrows suggestively and gesture furtively while mouthing ‘look over here’.”

It is kindov important to point out that while correlation does not equal causation, predictable results from a scientifically valid hypothesis does not equal correlation.
