FALSE ANALOGY

is one method of delivering an entirely invalid conclusion by associating two variables with each other or establishing an invalid causal relationship between an effect and resulting phenomena in an experiment.

FALSE ANALOGY: "False analogies are those established incorrectly by establishing a causal link between two variables which aren't necessarily related to each other at all."
