Barth: Musings on “God Here and Now”

Barth seems basically agnostic about the details of the Final Judgment and afterlife. This has me wondering:

1) Does this flow basically from Kant (who placed an impassible chasm between the realm of the physical/material/scientific and the spiritual/emotional/religious?)

2) Does Barth leave open the possibility that Hell really may be as bad as the Church has (almost) always said it is?

3) What does he do with:

a. The clear teachings of Scripture on this point?

b. The Scriptures where God uses the coming judgment as a motivation for action
(e.g. 2 Pet. 3:10-13)?
