The actual study acknowledges they only have correlative data and then loses restraint and talks about causation in the Conclusions...:

>Members of genera Eubacterium coprostanoligenes, Lachnospiraceae NK4A136, Akkermansia, and Parabacteroides might be potential taxa for intervening in obesity regarding different degrees of obesity. Furthermore, three species, Prevotella copri, Bacteroides ovatus, and Dorea formicigenerans also showed great potential to regulate obesity. In contrast, a strategy that targets the inhibition of certain taxa in different obesity groups might be another way to improve obesity.

"might" and "potential" are key words you're glossing over. One of the main points of having a conclusion section is to give some opinion and suggest further studies that future researchers on the topic could examine.
