Good science takes the human factor out as much as possible. For social sciences, double blind studies mean neither the participant, not the researcher knows if the participant is in the control group or the test group to make sure the researcher doesn't treat the groups differently. Physical sciences make predictions that are testable, and if they don't live up to the predictions, the theory is wrong (or at least flawed). While there is researcher that is biased, it is usually found out through peer review and debunked (immunization causes autism for example)
