Does "it" here refer to "the most reliable path - science"? That is, the Enlightenment values have built up the path?

Thanks in advance

Scientific American is not in the business of endorsing political candidates. But we do take a stand for science—the most reliable path to objective knowledge the world has seen—and the Enlightenment values that gave rise to it. For more than 170 years we have documented, for better and for worse, the rise of science and technology and their impact on the nation and the world.

    Yes:
    we do take a stand for (i) science—the most reliable path to objective knowledge the world has seen—and (ii) the Enlightenment values that gave rise to it (science).

    the Enlightenment values
    = the values that were established during the Enlightenment.
