Yeah no.I don't have to they didn't control the variables they just surveyed people that only gives you correlation I'm sorry you don't understand science.
there isn't a problem with the science. The problem is with your conclusion. You have concluded because two things are correlated that one must cause the other. You are saying shark attacks are caused by ice cream because the two things correlate.
That is not science that is your superstition because you really want your mask some sort of magical barrier. Just like stoneage people really wanted to be able to think that getting on their knees and wailing caused rain to fall and they came to the conclusion the exact same way you did. You did a thing and many variables happened but you don't care about them because only one holds any political currency so you forget about them and pretend it's the one that you care about.
Maybe you need the virtue signal, maybe you need an excuse as to why you're such a subordinate. I can't begin to guess at your reasoning but it isn't based on science not in the least you don't even know why correlation does not equal causation and that's so incredibly basic we just call it logic.
First yes the studies did control for intervening variables.
Second correlation is used all the time in science . It can be very powerful evidence especially when intervening variables are controlled for.
ITS WHY ITS USED IN SCIENCE IN THE FiRST PLACE YOU RIDICULOUS DUDE.
But thank you for proving why no one should listen to you.
I will leave you with this parting thought.
I mean I know you won't understand it. But most everyone else will.
" show me the randomized double blind controlled studies proving that jumping out of an airplane at 2000 feet is deadlier than jumping out using a parachute. "
It's a point I make to my students regarding research and best evidence.
Have a nice day.
