Expression for “Introducing an idea, logicaly supported by a previous one.”

I’ve been racking my brain, but I can’t remember the phrase.

For example, when you express an idea, and now you want to express another one, which can be logically supported by the arguments of the first one. I think it’s looks similar to: “Bouncing of that [idea]…”, “Following up on that [idea]…”.

Here’s how it would look in a sentence:

“Scientist from Harvard have discovered the yumm particle which confirms the existence of space monkeys, horses, [100 other things]. [Phrase] I would argue that the whole Darvin’s theory is false.”

Does anyone how the phrase goes?

EDIT: It could replace the “that reminds me” in the next sentence:

We went out last night and had a great time. That reminds me do you want go with us next time?


It is important to note that, the link between the (first) supporting statement and the (second) supported statement is speculative. The supporting statement has ‘motivated’ the author of the supported statement to conjecture. Importantly, the supported statement is not a corollary.

A corollary is the closest match to the OP’s intent. (But I would argue against its use in this context.)

Nevertheless, if you do wish to use it.

[Supporting]. As a corollary, [Supported].

Since the link is tenuous, there are several options. You could use

[Supporting]. In view of which, [Supported].

[Supporting]. As a consequence of which, [Supported].

[Supporting]. Consequently, [Supported].

My argument against Consequently, Therefore, Ergo and synonyms is that the first statement does not predicate the second. But this is in a strict sense, and otherwise in a colloquial context, any of these are also acceptable.
