Assumption, the mother of all f-ups.

—This, expressed in classic formular logic.

Correlation does not equal causation is a quip that expresses the logical fallacy that events or statistics that happen to coincide with each other are causally related. The reality is that cause and effect can be indirect, or due to confounding variables, and so the assumption of causation is false when the only evidence available is simple correlation. The form of fallacy that it addresses is known as post hoc, ergo propter hoc or “affirming the consequent.”
