Kant believes lying is immoral and would not do it. In class we came up with an example if a murderer came to your door and asked if your bestfriend was in your house so he can kill him (your bestfriend is in the basement) how would you respond. Most everyone said they would lie but Kant would not.

reductio ad absurdum- The refutation of a proposition by adopting that proposition and showing it leads to absurd consequences.
