I can’t see how the data collected is related to the question in the title of [this link](http://commonsenseatheism.com/?p=6482). The statistics tells us (I think) something about the number of philosophers who claim a specialization in philosophy of religion and who occupy a position in a Ph.D. granting institution. There is [data here](http://philpapers.org/surveys/demographics.pl?affil=Target+faculty&survey=8), too. But what does that have to do with whether or not philosophy of religion is taken seriously? And supposing it did tell us something about that, what would that tell us about whether philosophy of religion is serious philosophy? It makes me wonder about the real point of the post. Source of the link is the [Leiter Report](http://leiterreports.typepad.com/blog/2010/02/how-many-philosophers-of-religion-at-phdgranting-departments.html).
