I understand what the OP meant. I'm merely attempting to show that virtually all science will pander to preconceived notions, whether they ascribe to a secular or religious world view.
People have preconceived notions; people are influenced by them. Einstein added the cosmological constant because he had the preconceived idea that the universe was static.
Science does not have "notions". Science as a process is not biased one way or another. It simply deals with what can be dealt with. The process has proved to be remarkably resistant -- in the long term -- to the notions of it's practioners.
