You're right, science is supposed to be objective. Unfortunately, that objectivity is far from inherent, personal bias tends to get in the way. If you're counting or measuring cells, for example, you're more likely to unconsciously arrive at a value that supports your hypothesis. There are safeguards to prevent bias, such as double blind studies, but inevitably some subjectivity slips through. Even with a hypothetical objective data set, it's still up to the scientist to interpret the results and present an encompassing theory. That's why scientists spend so much time and money replicating the experiments of other scientists - they're trying to increase the probability that the phenomenon being reported is actually present, and not the product of someone's bias. Thank you for being nice!
