: Dear friends
: We often say that the coming of Baha'u'llah set in motion
: historical forces which in turn affected an upsurge in
: humanity's spiritual, material and intellectual evolution. But
: how, in the light of this, do we explain the 'Enlightenment'?
I believe the enlightenment was caused through the ideas and culture of Islam arriving in the West. Therefore it was the belated influence of Muhammad which brought about the enlightenment in Europe.
What do you think? I am only guessing!
PS. Are you THE Mike Morgan of the South Oxfordshire community, UK by any chance?
