Correlation/causation[edit]

I removed it because there were enough examples of science screwing up in this regard - that is, one. We don't need to have six examples that say the same thing. It's unnecessary clutter, and it makes the article merely a coatrack for "disturbing" examples of correlation that does not equal causation. Wikipedia isn't here to educate the public on every single time scientists have "disturbingly" misinterpreted evidence, at least not in unrelated articles such as this one (Obviously, I have no problem with a mention of these mistakes in the appropriate article). ♠PMC♠ 03:26, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

OK, I see your point, although I've been working on the Hungarian version of numerous Logical Fallacies and I found that having a few examples (normally more than one) helps a lot in explaining the specific fallacy. As these are really categories with various subtypes (such as common cause for A and B, or reverse causality, coincidence etc.) having more examples -- obviously not tons of them -- is more help than unnecessary redundancy. Multiple examples help for the reader to extract the common theme or pattern, and is less likely to misunderstand it.

Coord request[edit]

If you could include a title in the {{coord}} template, I'd appreciate it. Use the following as an example: {{coord|41|18|39|N|72|20|57|W|region:US_type:landmark|name=Amtrak Old Saybrook-Old Lyme Bridge}}

I pulled that from List of crossings of the Connecticut River. If you note the external link at the bottom of both that page and the List of crossings of the Danube River, you'll find what the title does. Check it at the Connecticut River list first, and note that updating the "name" attribute takes a few minutes before it is reflected in the results at that "plot all coords" link. Thank you for your efforts, they are appreciated. - Denimadept (talk) 18:39, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

OK, added names for the coords I added. Thanks for the tip. I just copied the coord template from another example on the page that also missed the name/title tag. Which one is the correct BTW? You are referring to it as title but then your example has name... Gligeti (talk) 17:28, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! According to Template:Coord, the parameter is called name. - Denimadept (talk) 18:33, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
