Deontology Year Zero

Immanuel Kant 

Foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds. Was Stephen J Gould thinking this when he propagated Punctuated Equilibrium? Quantum theory proposes the idea that atomic particles can be in two places at the same time. What if scientists stuck to the rate of acceleration of Newton's Apple as the universal paradigm of gravity. There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy. Hamlet fell into a poetic black hole, a force so great that it sucked in all matter--leaving a work of dramatic literature that still confounds scholars today. So how dependable are the old verities? Does 2+2=4 remain the kind of synthetic a priori knowledge that requires no empirical evidence?
