"The Enlightenment and the Scientific Revolution were twin explosions in thinking that made the 17th and 18th centuries one of the most exciting and dynamic eras in European history. People cam to believe the power of human reason apart from the guidance of religion. Astronomers concluded that the sun rather than Earth was the center of the universe, philosophers questioned kings' divine right to rule, and explorers brought back new ideas from the Middle and Far East. Modern thought stems from the Enlightenment, and contemporary science is a result of the Scientific Revolution."
