Why is the Enlightenment a bad thing again?
I feel that your view is very americentric. The majority of the philosophes were very much pro-monarchy and were trying to give the king all of the power (huge supporters of an absolute enlightened monarchy) They were pretty much as anti-democracy as they could be. Only the Americans really were republicans. Most of them also were religious to some point, most likely deists.
Which side of the English Civil War are you on?
Where does prematurely ending Reconstruction rank on America's list of greatest mistakes?
Why are people allowed to have faith in God but not in science or other methods of reducing bias?

How do i get more into history? should I just start doing stuff like reading history related Wikipedia articles?

>establish republic early on, maintain exceptional political stability and competent governance for centuries
>conquer a bunch of richfags
>extreme amounts of martial virtue
>enough logistics to send wave after wave of soldiers at a problem until it's solved
What were the practical benefits of being the Holy Roman Emperor?
Science and philosophy should have ended right there.
When did you realize Socrates had solved everything?
What do non-Muslims think of Mohammed? Was he a prophet who spread his genuine faith by the sword, or a charlatan who invented a religion to become king, and found enough followers to go out a-conquering?
He was a heretical Nestorian preacher probably, who used his charisma and martial prowess to carve out a huge empire. Pretty impressive tee bee aych, but in the West we don't really see any religious significance to him as far as our own faiths are concerned. Still, a pretty badass guy who knew how to get things done and win people's hearts and minds over.
Tl;Dr we see him more as a statesman and a military commander than as a prophet
