If it is expressed as "It is time we acknowledge a basic feature of human discourse", will the meaning remain the same?

Thanks in advance

*********************
It is a historical fact, for instance, that the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
Consequently, this fact forms part of the worldview of scientific rationality. Given the
evidence that attests to this fact, anyone believing that it happened on another date, or that
the Egyptians really dropped those bombs, has a lot of explaining to do. The core of science
is not controlled experiment or mathematical modeling; it is intellectual honesty. It is time we acknowledged a basic feature of human discourse: when considering the truth of a
proposition, one is either engaged in an honest appraisal of the evidence and logical
arguments, or one isn't.
