Prove it.

Because you don't have anything vaguely resembling a proof, all you have are the same observations that led to the conjecture being made.

Others have already pointed out that this is incorrect.

No it wouldn't. "Correlation" isn't enough for proof, now matter how far one carries the correlation.
