How does the correlation method compare/contrast with the ‘scientific method’?

Please be sure to check previous ‘comments’ underneath each of our posts for this week and last week, many of you can earn points yet for this week simply by ‘fixing’ what I’ve asked you to.  For Monday’s blog post, if you ‘fixed’ or added to your comment, you will get the 2 points for that particular post.  Remember, each comment you make, whether it’s to another student’s comment or to my posted question, is worth 2 points per day (with the possibility of earning MORE in terms of bonus or extra credit points for each week!!!) IF your post completely answers my question AND/OR you posted a substantial enough comment to one of your classmates.
