Even though God created the Universe, science explains it, and it is through science that we can understand it. The Enlightenment was a time in which the world was divided according to its beliefs. Some groups believed that the world was formed by the Big Bang, where some groups held to their beliefs in God and his everlasting kingdom of life. The Enlightenment instituted the idea of no tradition into the minds of the people and made them believe that they shouldn't be reliant on something simply because it was what they were used to. This realization and the anger caused by it led to the eventual revolution of American citizens.
