    Throughout the enlightenment philosophical thinkers began to challenge the order and system that had endowed individuals with rights and duties from religious orders. Instead throughout this time philosophers began to posit that individuals had natural rights regardless of religious affiliation and not based on any religious notions. They wrote that individuals possessed rights innately as humans and individuals both in their relationships with one another and also with their governments.
