Religion causes quarrels and pure reason alleviates them?

A friend wonders.

Tell that to the Russian who got shot in a quarrel over Kant’s philosophy. Here:

A police spokeswoman in Rostov-on Don, Viktoria Safarova, said two men in their 20s were discussing Kant as they stood in line to buy beer at a small store on Sunday. The discussion deteriorated into a fistfight and one participant pulled out a small nonlethal pistol and fired repeatedly.

Last, we heard, his injuries were not life-threatening.

Note: Kant was the author of Critique of Pure Reason

  1. At least Kant provides philosophy worth fighting for.

  2. Cannot help but submit a pun…

    “Kant never could and never will…”

  3. Of related note:

  4. I wonder if the shooting was a categorical imperative.
