When you haven’t had much education in science and research, it is easy to get correlation mixed up with causation. Some don’t bother to read the definitions either or take time to learn about what’s truly being said. This opens up huge flaws in the A’ole GMO club’s arguments.
First, let’s define what correlation is:
Now let’s define what causation is:
Note, now really note and pay attention here, these two words are found in completely different sections of the dictionary. Why? Because they have completely different meanings. They are not the same as you can see from above.
The A’oles have resorted to their science with their graphs as shown below:
These A’oles will state that the increase in GMOs in our diets are the reason for increases in every single disease on earth. If that is the case, then that would mean the rise in production and consumption of organic foods would also be linked to increased disease. Well, that would fluster them all up in a forum so we’ll leave that aside for now. Basically, if something is correlated, it doesn’t mean that it is causative. One has to dig deeper to determine causation from a correlation.
In today’s edition of the chronicles of the A’ole GMO club, we are going to talk about correlation a bit more. As we have seen across many forums where GMOs are discussed here in Hawaii, there is a noticeable trend in the A’oles commentary lengths. They seem to be getting very, very long in their posts:
Do A’oles really think that others are going to read these online novels when most of the time they themselves don’t even read the actual post or article they are commenting on? I am starting to think that there is indeed a correlation here. The correlation of the post is inversely proportional to the degree of critical thinking and reasoning. And since some of our lazy readers won’t bother to check the link, this is what it means:
A’ole interpretation here: The longer your post, the less in will be based upon critical thinking and reasoning.
The A’oles go on and on about their hate or knowledge about GMOs that sometimes they even forget what or where the initial target post was to begin with:
Note that the blog link posted states clearly that the regulation of pesticides would be voluntary until the formal legislation is put into place. The A’oles obviously have no reading comprehension skills because they comment as if the whole law would be voluntary. Please read people, or you will be made the fool but we know that already.
Yes A’oles, this is really sending the governor a strong message of what you’re all about and how you don’t think. And that is why you are an A’ole. A’ole GMO means A’ole Aloha and A’ole critical thinking and reasoning. You’ve just shown that to the Governor tonight with how you’ve shown your exemplary manners and professionalism on his own official page. And you want him to listen to you after all of that???
