Causation does not mean correlation. Just because two things seem to be connected, it doesn't mean they are. Further, one thing does not necessarily cause the other.   

Think about this. Statistically, when ice cream sales go up, home burglaries go up. Does this mean that by purchasing a scoop you are enabling home break-ins? Of course not. 

People naturally buy more ice cream in the summer, when the average daily temperature is on the rise. And, maybe there is a higher number of homeowners who vacation during the summer. Burglars prefer an empty home, and many homes are temporarily empty in the summer when families go on vacation. See how two things can seemingly be connected but do not necessarily create the other? </rant>
