One of the goals of the European Enlightenment (roughly from the mid-17th to the end of the 18th-century), was to separate rational, scientific thinking from faith-based religious thinking and to reduce religion to a matter of personal conscience while employing secular thought in matters government, the economy, social policy and technological development. To do so would, it was hoped, help medicine to conquer disease, prosperity to overcome poverty, democracy to replace tyranny, medicine to conquer disease and knowledge to replace superstition. Using either Galileo or Darwin as an example, assess whether the gradual acceptance of their contributions to science has had any positive effect in terms of the Enlightenment goals mentioned above.
