If it is not then science is just made up stuff, like fairies, useful fairies. We are ontologically and epistemologically screwed if you want to get technical.
If it is possible then we have to at least consider the possibility that some of our attempts to understand reality have succeeded and that we have to some extent grasped some of the very nature or essence of reality. In this case it becomes an epistemological problem and not an ontological problem.

Its not possible with our limited sense of the world. Thats why we develop expensive machines to see and calculate what we cannot so it does fit in the same class as fairies
You can't trust a meta-ethical moral relativist since such a person can abuse reason to justify any act.
Yes, just like how we cannot see infrared light we developed cameras to show use the presence and interpret the light for us. Though we will never know the "true colour" of infrared as our eyes cannot see it so the camera shows the light in blue green yellow red depending in the intensity
What is true color?
dont know. Depends on the eye thats percieving the information hence why i put it in quotation marks
