I would agree as well but the problem with the Renaissance is its attempt to exclude God in the discussion willfully. Not allowing theistic ideas to challenge some of the modern philosophies or distilling the ideas will taint the discourse and prevent us from seeing the truth. Having said that, many modern philosophers' attempt was to intentionally exclude Him anyway and hence gave birth to atheism. This exclusion was filled with our new found scientific knowledge hence killed God in the process as Nietzsche would put it. This modern worldview due to its roots and intentions has dichotomise science and God and is doing the society a big disfavour. You may disagree with me, but we will see what happens in the next 200-300 years. Truth in any form of metanarratives take time to be proven and provided we are willing to accept it.
