What happened to the age of Enlightenment?

 

This is my (Nigel Aves) first attempt at doing a "Talking Head" video, it's 16 minutes long, and yes, there are a couple of "oops" in there! 

A look back at the Age of Enlightenment, and asking the question, "Where did it go in America?" 

This video explains what the age of Enlightenment was, it's purpose, and why it was important. How Americans of the time believed in the concepts, and adopted those concepts. People like  Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.

We then look at how the Religious Right seems to have no understanding of the actual bible that they cherry pick from.
