"As I understand it, Kantian constructivism is partly a position in normative ethics and partly a position in metaethics.

Wood

"Without a thorough and deeply rooted understanding of the biblical view of truth as revealed, objective, absolute, universal, eternally engaging, antithetical and exclusive, unified and systematic, and as an end in itself, the Christian response to postmodernism will be muted by the surrounding culture or will make illicit compromises with the truth-impoverished spirit of the age. The good news is that truth is still truth, that it provides a backbone for witness and ministry in postmodern times, and that God's truth will never fail." - Douglas Groothuis

"Big bang cosmology is probably as widely believed as has been any theory of the universe in the history of Western civilization.

"'Biblical worldview'. The term means literally a 'view of the world', a biblically informed perspective on all of reality. A worldview is like a mental map that tells you how to navigate the world effectively. It is the imprint of God's objective truth on our inner life." - Nancy Pearcey

"People who reject transcendent authority can no longer persuade one another through rational arguments; everything is reduced to personal opinion.

"I'm an educator, and I'm a scientist, and I speak what is objectively true. And if that offends you, I can try to have a conversation with you to ask why it offends you, and tell you why objective truth should not offend you because that's how the world works." - Neil Degrasse Tyson

"The truth is, the way you write music, it's a code. It has to be very precise. It's scientific, but ultimately it also depends on interpretation. It's very similar to how you grow a master plan: it's an objective document, but at the same time it is a lyrical document which allows through interpretation to become a harmonious work of art." - Daniel Libeskind

"Whenever a journalist says to me, "Oh, you don't understand, I'm impartial, I'm objective," I know what he's saying. I can decode it immediately. It means he channels the official truth.

"In a milieu of resignation, where the young men think of society as a closed room in which there are no values but the rejected rat race,... it is extremely hard to aim at objective truth or world culture. One's own products are likely to be personal or parochial." - Paul Goodman

"Art is not and never has been subordinate to moral values. Moral values are social values; aesthetic values are human values.

Morality has only one aim - the ideal good; art has quite another aim - the objective truth... art never changes." - Herbert Read

"I feel that a documentarian has an obligation to tell the truth as he or she interprets it.

"I don't pretend to be objective. There is no such thing as being an objective journalist." - Jeremy Scahill

"There is no author or legislator of the moral law. It is simply valid in itself in the nature or essence of things. We become autonomous only when we obey it, because then our will aligns itself with the objectively valid law, and our choice follows the same law as that we give ourselves. We can think of rational faculty (or the idea - the pure rational concept, not exhibitable in experience) as the legislator or author of the law because reason recognizes an objective standard, and to that extent is already aligned with objective moral truth." - Allen W. Wood

"Truth is truth, not the explanations of Truth. Truth is a living, moving process. Truth is constantly undulating and vibrating. You can become one with the Truth, but you cannot adequately explain it." - Ilchi Lee
