Demarcation, not truth

Josh at Thoughts from Kansas mentioned my recent post on demarcation on his blog. He gives a quote from a recent paper:

The nature of ‘truth’ is a recurring concern to postmodernists, who generally purport that there are no truths but multiple realities and that understandings of the human condition are dynamic and diverse.

And then Josh writes that this is how I think of science. The post he quotes from has nothing to do with that, though. I wasn't talking about what was true and what wasn't true - I was talking about what the motivations for the demarcation problem are.
