No, I did the opposite of what you just said.  I objected to your using an
associative study to indicate causation because

     "Correlation DOES NOT INDICATE causation"

And then I did indeed use a second *associative study* as proof of
non-causation because

     "A lack of correlation DOES INDICATE a lack of causation."

I suggest you brush up on these basic rules of evidence before you post
another long diatribe about how I am breaking them.
