Reason and Objectivity

"Related to this is the myth of objectivity. Objectivity supposedly flows from the unbiased use of this universal instrument called reason. Just as two people can use the same scale to measure different things, thereby relating them to an objective standard, so, theoretically, can one use this thing called reason to objectively evaluate evidence and generate insight into the nature of reality. Objectivity is supposedly something the intellectual can have, while the person of faith wallows in mere subjectivity." ~ Daniel Taylor, The Myth of Certainty, p.51
