Hi!

The bible says that you don't want to confuse conditional relationships with cause and effect relationships. I was doing this question and found that conditional diagramming worked, so I'm a little confused!

Premise: G----->/H (and the contrapositive is H---->/G [keep in mind that it said "for good things cause no harm at all"
Premise: W----->H
Conclusion: W ----> /G

Put together, premise 1 and 2 come together (I think!) to make the conclusion W----->/G

So can I use conditionals when "cause" is used, and then do the contrapositive? If not, this questions is really confusing for me :0
