There's a golden rule when it comes to statistics. Correlation does not equal causation. It's tempting to think that an r-value of 0.999999 means x causes y. A strong correlation, however, doesn't necessarily mean causation.

The best way to show this is to use a real-world example. There's a strong positive correlation between global temperatures and the number of pirates. Consequently, it seems really tempting to say that pirates cause global warming, which is an inconvenient truth for the pirates but good news for the fossil fuel industry.

The only flaw in this argument is that pirates don't cause global warming. They might have contributed to it, like every other human on Earth, but we can't exactly pin the whole thing on those scurvy shipmates.

Mathematically, we generally err on the side of correlation. If watering a plant with fruit juice, for instance, resulted in increased growth, we would say that there's a positive correlation between fruit juice and plant growth. We wouldn't, however, say that fruit juice causes plants to grow taller. There may have been other variables involved. Perhaps the plants watered with fruit juice also received more sunlight or were serenaded with songs from the movie Titanic. In math and science, the general rule is to speak of correlation, not causation. Correlation is easy to support, causation, on the other hand, is a whole different beast.
