divorce rates

 Here is my little study that shows that Barnes could be correct saying that correlation is insignificant between the divorce rate and belief.

Yeah, putting a line to that

Yeah, putting a line to that just seems dirty to me. It should more look like a circle instead of a line. BTW: Where's the data from?

Thanks for asking, I forgot to add the sources.  Also, if the numbers are multiplies by the number of people living in each state then there is a strong increase in divorces with increase in the number of believers.  

Sources: % of non-believers are from ARIS report of 2008 
and the divorce rates are from here:
