Good vs. Evil

In the long-running battle between Good and Evil, Good seems to be gaining the upper hand.  At least, as defined by the historical frequency at which the words "good" and "evil" appear in the Google Google Labs "Books Ngram Viewer" quantitative analysis tool.

Good has increased in an absolute sense over Evil.   However, the all-important GER (Good/Evil ratio) has actually dropped from about 7 a decade ago to around 5 today.
