Flaws of Immanuel Kant and Kantianism

Immanuel Kant wrongly rejected theistic proofs [1], miracles [2], and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. [3] Kant was wrongly philosophically agnostic, morally uniformitarian, and axiologically deontologist. He failed to realize that natural law is general and statistical, not necessarily without exceptions.

Strict deontologism is wrong in many ways. It says that an act is either good or bad regardless of its outcome. Mere obligatory obedience is often done resentfully, but we must act out of the heart or our actions are meaningless. Acting out of love, humility, and integrity like Jesus Christ is superior to mere deontological motivation.
