    So ….. what do you get out of it?

      Me? I find it interesting how these word frequency charts seem to give a flavour of the texts themselves.

        I do agree with you. I find the one for the KJV Bible comforting. There is something about it that makes me feel peaceful.

        I find the Darwin one comforting, probably because it’s about reality.

    I like how Darwin’s looks like a Dalek that has fallen over.
