If I recall correctly, Kant also claimed that only Eulidean geometry could be consistent.

Anyone who would submit the validity of a mathematical argument to a court of law, knows very little about mathematics and very little about the law.

If the mathematicians of Germany knew what anti-mathematical nonsense WM was pouring into his students, they might very well act to burst that bubble filled with even fouler gas.
