    “Kant is difficult to understand for good reason- because he was attempting to baffle us with bullshit.
    Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, of which Kant has none.
    How can someone such as Kant himself, who is supposedly ‘trapped’ behind ‘green spectacles’ ever even have knowledge of this ‘noumenal world’ ?
    He doesn’t, and is dishonest. “

    • Does absence of evidence mean evidence of absence?
      What if Kant closed his eyes to perceive reality better?
