Think About IT: No Bias?

Science claims to be the unbiased evaluation of the empirical facts, but anyone who looks at the facts, realizes that far too often, philosophical commitments drive them more than just the facts.

For example, Nobel Prize winner Steven Weinberg said that the “steady state theory is philosophically the most attractive theory because it least resembles the account given in Genesis.”  ((Cited in John D. Barrow, The World within the World (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1988), 226))
