Science succeeds or fails in its efforts to provide or produce valuable technology & policy based upon the quality of its theories .

When theory is incorrectly formulated or hypothesis are incorrectly deduced from theory, then technology & social policy fail.

Mistakes in theory induction & deduction can be summarised as two types of false relationships between variables : spurious relationships & suppressor relationships.

Simply said correlation does not mean causation.
