What does it mean to prove a conclusion? "Proving a conclusion," means showing that the conclusion is a better answer to the argument's implicit question than other serious rival answers.
When events happen they leave behind traces. For example, when a car slams on its breaks to avoid a pedestrian, the skid marks, the smell of burning rubber are left behind. Traces give us reasons to think that an event happened, because the event happening could explain why the traces are there.
Correlations, when two events happen together, lead us to wonder if the events are causally connected. Causal stories that elaborate how one event is causally related to another, explain why events happen together.
