Luckily you don't have too, so long as you don't choose to deny the findings of many, many peer reviewed articles showing that link. Or you have your own evidence?

'Probably' means, for the purposes of discussion, a chance greater than 50%. I am not aware of any study proposing there is a 50% or greater chance abused children will go on to become abusers themselves.

I may very well be wrong, though. Would you mind linking me to some?

The post I quoted did not contain the word 'probably', it did however contain 'significantly'. Significantly, used in the statistical context, can loosely be described as a finding of some proportion or measurement different from an expected value that does not arise from chance.

yep, the 'probably' I'm referring to was in this post:

That's just silly.

IMO, its worse because she did it to her own kid.
