I am trying to improve my question asking ability after my last question wasn't very well received. Also I think that this would be a relevant guide to point to when it comes to some of the evolutionary and societal questions on here. Maybe not now but in the future.
So what I mean by "divergent evolution" is questions that go in the vein of "Everyone was the same until X event happened. Then group 1 went one way, group 2 a different way, ad nauseum. Is this realistic?" When should someone split those into individual questions based on group 1, group 2, group 3, etc? And group could easily be redefined as responses to an event, etc.
As an example, I am working on a question about angels and demons evolving from the same race. However some went to heaven, some went to hell, and they evolved from there. Do I split this into two questions, because angels and demons have different fundamental physiology and evolved in different environments? Or do the go into the same question based on the fact that they evolved from the same species but X event caused them to go one place or another?
In short, where do we draw the line on questions based on divergence?
