### Hi,could you explain more how

Hi, could you explain more how causation does not mean correlation? How are the two different from each other?

### If two events are correlated,

If two events are correlated, it means that they typically occur at the same time.

However, just because two events may be correlated, it is often difficult to tell whether one event CAUSES the other event.

For example, there is a strong correlation between smoking and alcoholism. That is, it is often the case that people who are alcoholics are also smokers.

Does this mean that smoking CAUSES alcoholism? Or does it mean that alcoholism CAUSES people to smoke? It's hard to say.

The point is that, if two events are correlated, we necessarily conclude that one event CAUSES the other event.

Brent
