  3. Ya. Good evidence that “science” is more likely to appear at the beginning of a sentence. (But check the y-axes: I think “market” + “Market” is even a little higher than “science” + Science.”)

  4. Jesus is doing pretty well after a mid-century slump, though not as well as the market.

  7. What if you do “God” instead of “religion?” Or “money” instead of “market?” I suspect that these figures are highly sensitive to the terms used and it is really the concept or topic that is of interest.

  8. Also worth noting that unlike ‘religion’ and ‘science’, ‘market’ is commonly used as a noun and as an adjective.

  10. Jesus is also a top-100 boy’s name. Do they all count?
