Who is using that argument an where? Because that is false. The reason we do randomized controlled trials is to determine causation.

No, we do double-blinded controlled studies to determine if there’s a correlation between the variables present - and to avoid that the expectations of the investigators and/or the subjects may influence the results observed.

If a correlation is observed, it doesn’t mean that there’s causation present.  But if no correlation is observed, then it does disprove causation.  At least to the extent of the power of the study.  Small negative studies don’t mean as much as large negative studies.

It’s also important that the study should be double-blinded, which might be difficult or impossible to arrange.  With DST it may be impossible to avoid the population being made aware that driving might now be more hazardous - for example it might be dark when they drive to work or they might now be driving into the rising or setting sun - and that they should take greater care.  With a high fat/low carbohydrate diet it might be impossible to avoid the possibility that the test subjects might be more motivated, because they have a preexisting belief in its efficacy.

Ok Johan, if you’re a god, god's wife or whatever you’re claiming this week, explain the Religious significance of Judges chapter 19.

Actually it is a God.  And more specific the Wife of God with many God-Children.  And being Children they are very naughty and ignorant.  But I have Patience with them.

As for you question:

You have to read that chapter together with another one.

1 Kings 3

But before we really going into other themes.  Let us finish what needs to be finished as we are not far from the "end".

We are busy here with  Abaddon and his lies.  And then we are also busy with the "Terrible Things"

So are you with Us in the Toi-toi against the "fakes"
No lies from me. You yourself handed everyone the court papers. You yourself handed out publicly the contact details for all the good folks you wronged. You yourself invited everyone to make contact with them.

Now, you are surprised that anyone did what you demanded, you are surprised that anyone emailed and phoned your victims. Well, tough luck for you. You actually asked us to do so. You challenged us to do so. You really thought that the internet would hide what you really are.

So kindly explain, Johan, why it is that you are allowed to "backbite" elsewhere and on facebook too, when you consider such to be somehow scurrilous.

Square that circle.

So I am actually disciplining him.  And this I will link to him again to make the discipline effective.

How exactly are you "disciplining" him?

Giving him enough rope.  Like Abaddon and you running with the "backbiting" of Abaddon while he just gave us his opinion without any evidence whatsoever. Being a puppet to those that misused him. And now you guys are swinging on your ropes in the Sun.

Wait a minute, Johan. You are whinging about people talking behind your back and yet you are doing the very same thing about me on a different forum of which I am not a member. I cannot respond to you there because I am not a member there. Nevertheless you continue to bad mouth me there doing exactly the thing you bemoan.

The Preach.

Halleyscomet asked for the preach on this "Monumental Day"

So here it is.

As you all are my Children it is just right that all should listen to the same Preach.

The Kingdom of Solomon.

Halleyscomet wanted a "preach".  Seems he has certain connotations for the Children of God and their "preaching"

Well King Solomon preach differently.

His way is "Hands On"

Since your are "king-less".,49517.msg9557139.html#msg9557139

And thus struggling with "sacrosanct"

Judges 19

You can now be released from "hanging on your puppet-chains".

It's annoying that people keep saying daylight saving gives us more daylight, we don't get more daylight, we just take better advantage of it... it's a scheduling change, our clocks don't have any effect on the amount of daylight.  Of course you all know this, but people still say "we get more daylight"

All the same benefits can be acquired by changing our work/school schedules.  But with daylight saving, we only need to change 1 thing, so it's simpler.

I've invented my own way to "get more daylight", it's called "waking up earlier", it's amazing how much more hiking I can do.

General Discussion / Re: How many holes does a straw have?

Obviously the real holes are the friends we made along the way.

My friends are not usually the ones I refer to as 'holes.

I've heard 'blokes' refer to women as 'two holes' quite a lot recently.

I have a butt hole, a mouth hole, a hole at the end of my dick, two ear holes, two nose holes, and two eye holes that are plugged by eyeballs. Some people have a vagina hole instead of a dick hole. That's nine holes for all of us, not counting all those pore holes and hair-follicle holes. And then sometimes if you're unlucky you get poked or stabbed or shot, creating additional holes. I've never met anybody who has only two holes.
As per the point of the original post, mouth-butt may be considered 2 or 1, possibly also including both nose holes as a single hole...

Also, depending on your definition, innie bellybuttons might also count, ditto dimples, cleft chins, etc.

Is it also going to tell us if its noticing you on your bike, or the skateboarder in front of you, or the grandmother with her walker?  Will it have different tones for each?
