Summary Egginton questions whether fundamentalists and atheists truly oppose each other, as they both believe that the methods we use to understand the world are all versions of an underlying master code. The most effective weapon against such thinking is religious moderation, a way of believing that questions the very possibility of a code of codes. The moderately religious are best suited to protect science and politics from fundamentalist attack
