In its rules of ethical behaviour, religious traditions can be compared in some ways to modern game theory. The scientist and secular humanist Carl Sagan identified six common moral codes in his essay The Rules of the Game.
- Golden Rule
- Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
- Silver Rule
- Do not do unto others what you would not have them do unto you.
- Brass Rule
- Do unto others as they do unto you.
- Iron Rule
- Do unto others as you like, before they do it unto you.
- Tin Rule
- Suck up to those above you, and abuse those below.
- Tit-for-Tat Rule
- Cooperate with others first, then do unto them as they do unto you.
