That’s fair, so long as you’re willing to conflate the principles of logic with how we actually come to understand what is true of the world.

I have no idea what that means.

We derive the presence or absence of causes from results all the time.

There are indeed occasions where a result leads to only one possible cause. But that is generally not true of social sciences or issues, where causality is not so easily determined.
