I can not deny the influence of the Enlightenment, or as John Gerstner used to call it, "the endarklement," on the founders. But I thank God for His Providence, without which nothing could happen.

I would do the same, even if I were a citizen of Botswana, but today happens to be the anniversary of the establishment of my country.

Happy 4th of July.

Craig,

Oh come on! The Enlightenment is about thinking deeply, about the clear and free thoughts that changed out view of the world, the liberation of our thinking from dogmatism and thus allowing us to grow as humans, it is what established the idealism of democracy (we are not truly there yet, and who knows if we will, given the forces of obscurantism, such as your religion, and such as the deprioritization of true education in any political agendas).

In any event, good to know you know that the Enlightenment had enormous influence in the establishment of democracy and the many freedoms in the US constitution. At least you are not blinded by the lie and rhetoric of "based on Christian principles."

Keep enjoying your little vacation!
