Correlation does not imply causation, but causation causes correlation. By correlation I do not mean exclusively linear correlation, it could be arbitrarily shaped, as long as it is consistent and reflects dependency.
Does correlation correlate with causation?
At first I thought: "Yes, because every causation implies correlation hence there definitely is a correlation between correlation and causation."
But then I thought: "Wait, the answer is no because for every correlation that is truly causal there are an infinite number of correlations that are not causal, hence the correlation between correlation and causation is not significant."
Which is right, the first answer or the second answer? Or neither?
