Your assertion that I said correlation never implies causation is a lie. I gave you a specific example of a correlation of +0.13 (a specific number) between college coed's shoe size and their grade point average. Correlation, yes. Causation, not likely. You stated that was the only example I could have come up with to prove I was correct in saying correlation does not imply cause and effect. I do not have a degree is statistics but have taken both undergraduate and graduate level courses in statistics. I do not have a degree in chemistry and never claimed I did. It was a secondary area.
I have no idea what a genetical statistician is? Is it an area of study you made up? You asked a problem that was unsolvable because the information you provided ran contrary to the laws of genetics.
One more thing. Correlation does not imply cause and effect. Google Bradford Hill for more details.
"Statistics Rodent". Settle down Sheldon. I'll give you a statistics lesson. Correlation does not imply cause and effect as you have stated in the past. Google "Bradford Hill" for a more complete lesson.
So your saying that if, over 40 years, you invest (by law) a total of $772,000 and get back $966,000 your really getting a great return on your investment.
Only you Al, would be stupid enough to believe that was a good deal.
Do you really believe a 33% total return over 40 years is a good deal?
If you are single and you die, your money is gone. If you had invested the same amount yourself you would have gotten a far better return, and been able to leave what was left over to charity.
As I said, you make a fool of yourself with every post.
Eagerly awaiting your foul mouthed reply.
UT does consider race in its admission policy, along with socioeconomic background. As log as the UT uses "special circumstances" (their words) discrimination is certainly possible.
Fisher graduated in the top 12% of her class and had a SAT score in the top 25% of the incoming class of 2008. The UT does not apply the same admissions criteria to all students.
Underrepresented "special circumstances" students are held to a different standard. What percentage of the UT varsity football team graduated in the top 12% of their high school class and scored 1180 on the SAT?
Piles - In 2003, in a 6-3 decision, SCOTUS ruled against the University of Michigan regarding its admission policies that included race (underrepresented groups) among other things. The university subsequently changed its admission policies.
How do you know if I collect SS? If I do. how do you know how much I collect? You make a fool of yourself with every post.
Capitalism has been very good to me. I pay more than my share of taxes already, I shouldn't have to pay more.
"to get the true prospective of history". Does that mean I have to read a history of WWII written by a #$%$ to find the "true" prospective of the war?
By your logic, any flag of any country in the world that went to war would be a "battle flag". That's ridiculous. What flag did the states that made up the confederacy fly before the civil war"? In what year was the first confederate flag designed?
"mechanical farming". One thing I know for sure, you don't have a degree in agricultural engineering.
The first PRACTICAL cotton picker was not invented until WWII. In the early 1970's, when I was in graduate school in KY, I helped a friend harvest tobacco on his farm. All hand labor. Still is today.
"prosperity of middle-class Americans." It was recently reported that during Walker's tenure as governor, Wisconsin had the highest percentage loss of middle income earners of any state in the US. And no, it wasn't because of an increase in upper incomer earners. Couple that with the fact that the state of Wisconsin has had one of the lowest job creation rates in the US during Walkers tenure and you have a state that is suffering from economic decline. I see it first hand.
