In the 'Evidence that God is real' thread, James R separated out what he considers off-topic posts from on-topic posts. I find that intriguing. It lends itself to a little bit of analysis, in my opinion. We have a hot topic, with a large dataset of over 1000 posts, but limited to a very manageable number of contributors (33). Frankly, this did not break out how I thought it would, and because of that, I've chosen to post it for all. I don't think it disparages anyone in particular, but is fascinating nonetheless. Now, take this with a grain of salt: the distinction between on-topic and off-topic was JamesR's alone, so this chart is necessarily a reflection of that.
