Correlation or causation?

Correlated.org combines seemingly disparate positions on social issues to build odd profiles of people by looking for statistically anomalous overlaps. What that means is they ask random groups of people a bunch of questions to figure out odd relationships. Take, for example, people who try to raise sea-monkeys. They are. Would you believe. More likely than average to dye their hair.

“In general, 44 percent of people have dyed their hair at some time. But among people who have tried to raise Sea-Monkeys, 63 percent have dyed their hair.

Based on a survey of 326 people who have tried to raise Sea-Monkeys and 1174 people in general.”

Love it.

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.
