I like this. I am a philosopher in the "Continental" tradition, ie. we take account of history, culture and so on (analytical philosophy is a form of Presbyterianism). But the only little point I wish to make is that I see Kant as opening the way to Einstein, not as getting his physics wrong. Kant didn't "believe" in space, time and causality as such. The way he explained it foreshadows Einstein. This is one reason Kant is so great.

In the middle of page 136 (of the only edition in print) of Kant's Lectures on Philosophical Theology, he gives a perfect description of what today we would call the Big Bang.
Kant's philosophy opened mind and continues to do so.
