Darwinist Donald Prothero writes,
There may be biases in our perceptions, and we may want to find data that fits our preconceptions about the world, but if science is done properly, we get a real answer, often one we did not expect. That’s the true test of when science is giving us a reality check: when it tells us something we do not want to hear, but is inescapable if one follows the scientific method and analyzes the data honestly.” – Denialist Demagogues and the Threat to Science. (It’s an attack on those scientists who question human causes as a big factor in global warming.)
Unfortunately, when Darwinists use the term, they mean: “Science is giving us a reality check ‘when it tells other people something they do not want to hear.’”
The recent dialogue on carnivorous plants provides a marvellous illustration. One Darwinist simply could not get it through his head that carnivorous plants are not restricted to areas of poor soil simply because they have an advantage over other plants there. The simple fact that having an advantage there does not add up to having a disadvantage elsewhere eluded him – because it is not Darwin.
