I enjoyed how Hobsbwan talked about the age of Enlightenment and its influence on the universe and different areas of science. I enjoy learning about different forms of science and their roots so this part was very interesting to me. I would have preferred he focused on the topic a little more and gave a better in depth idea about it though.
My question is: if science never played a key roll during this time and advances were never made in certain ares, how important would religion be to us today? If religion was more of an everyday thing for a larger portion of the world, compared to the amount now, would our world be the same?
