Both Ta'ithan factions are devoutly religious.

The Preservationists have a mindset and worldview that integrates science and religion.

The Deconstructors have a mindset and worldview that reduces religion to superstition.
When I read the book I could see the Preservationists standing in for the Religious people in the real world (Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, etc.) but then I saw the Deconstructors representing the Aetheists/Aegeists. But instead of discussing the matter civilly, it was almost like the author had you at gun point while trying to discuss the issue. It was very badly done.
This sums it up for me
