  1. Fundamentalists, exposed to social elements outside of their literal faith
  2. An interplay between religious and secular society

Sam Harris gives voice to the shared opinions of a great many agnostics and atheists throughout our culture who feel, like him, that religion "is doing such mad work in our society" (Harris). Certainly to many of us it is horrifying, if true, that "44 percent of Americans think Jesus is going to come in the next 50 years" and that the Apocalypse is a completely real and immediate event to be planned for actively (Harris). However, Harris also takes on religious moderates in a way which would leave many agnostic moderates uncomfortable, by claiming that those who claim to be religious but still, unlike most fundamentalists, support and condone most of the modern world, for instance, the use of birth control, are "deluding themselves about the source of their moderation" and are "not being honest".
