About Rationalism
Meant to challenge the unshakeable faith of the Puritans
Focused more on creating a better life on Earth instead of focusing on death and the afterlife
“Reason and free inquiry…are the natural enemies of error, and of error only.” Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia
Created Deism to put a reason behind religion
Didn't believe in superstition, the holy trinity, a literal interpretation of the Bible, and that worship required church service.
