It was Immanuel Kant who first used the term Enlightenment.<quoted text>
Yes... it really doesn't matter in the end, does it?
The 1960's civil rights did happen, and great strides towards equality were finally had.
Not complete-- not by any measure, but great strides-- so it really doesn't matter how the idea got rolling.
But secularism has been slowly eroding the bible's strangle-hold on "morality" since the beginning of the Enlightenment.
And a more fitting name for that bit of history I cannot imagine.
It was also called the Age of Reason, also a most fitting name.
Except for the lack of medical care or even toilets, it would have been a great time to be alive.
