I was reading about nihilism, and my question is this: Are there really any significant differences between nihilism and objectivism? It kind of seems like nihilism is an extreme type of objectivism. but then again, my understanding of both subjects is limited.

B) There's a huge difference between Nihilism and Objectivism.

Nihilism says that values are baseless and that you can't know or communicate anything. It's pessimism, cynicism, skepticism. Objectivism says the exact opposite: there are values worth keeping and acheiving, and you most certainly can know and communicate things.
