One, we do have access to truth. Otherwise, (drum roll again for the slow of hearing) your (see, Spratley, this word is possessive) statement that we don't have access to the truth couldn't be true. Two, nihilism has caused a hell of lot more violence than it has prevented.
Actually, in your own stumbling, bumbling way, that post may not be so far off, but I could be wrong.
PS Thanks for the "Truth plays a central role in philosophy" observation. I was moved to tears by your insight.
