The use of Reason and reasonable argumentation, the reclaiming of the idea of Progress and the struggle against dogma. In this post-modern world, reinventing Enlightenment is of the utmost importance.

The rise of God

Ever since the Enlightenment started, God lost battle after battle to Reason. The greatest of them all God lost it to Darwin.

Finally, believers were cornered into admitting that believing in God was merely an act of faith – not of Reason.

And that was fine, because the Enlightenment is tolerant in spirit and one of the values of the Enlightenment is everyone can believe whatever he/she choses to believe, so long as it does not conflict with Reason and a reasonably ordered society.

So why is it that this blog is named Back to the Enlightenment? One of the reasons is the one you read here and here and here and this list could go on and on and on. Darwin is under siege. So is Reason.
