Post Hoc, Ergo Propter Hoc

A group of tourists will be held in Malaysia, following a deadly earthquake which occurred a week after the visitors had stripped naked at the peak of Mount Kinabalu.

Whether other people believe this or not, it’s what we Sabahans believe. When the earthquake happened, it’s like a confirmation of our beliefs. There is almost certainly a connection. We have to take this as a reminder that local beliefs and customs are not to be disrespected.

It’s quite absurd to believe that this naked revelry could cause an earthquake. On the other hand, the entitled nature of these tourists who decided to disrespect a sacred site, is also rather unbelievable.
