In the Age Of Reason

Have we moved from the Age of Reason to the Age of Reasons and Excuses?

When I did this piece in 2016 the news was filled with the numerous candidates for president who filled debate stages across America. My world and the one that hid itself from my eyes collided for the first time in a long time; but it wasn’t just me, we have all changed our position, in many cases it has lead us apart and we find ourselves in the age of reason facing questions we left to answer at a later date. But suddenly, “like a thief in the night”, later, caught up with us; then and now. 
How can I reason out a thing that is anything but reasonable? Is it reasonable to trust the invisible to manage my invisible enemy?
 Is it foolish to trust an invisible god to handle my enemies on my behave? Yes. Well, call me foolish in the Age of Reason.

Hey Google! What is the Age of Reason?
"The Enlightenment, also known as the Age of Reason, was a philosophical movement that took place primarily in Europe and, later, in North America, during the late 17th and early 18th century. Its participants thought they were illuminating human intellect and culture after the "dark" Middle Ages." - Google

"The Age of Reason" - by Thomas Paine;  "Being an Investigation of True and Fabulous Theology is a work by English and American political activist Thomas Paine, arguing for the philosophical position of Deism."  - Wikipedia
