hath writ

" If the experiments are not well-founded, then we shouldn't see coherent and corresponding results from the many experiments that are performed."

If the experiments were not well-founded but were performed and recorded
with greatest meticulousness, they could be worthwhile data nonetheless. This would vary from case to case. I would not try to justify
any badly reasoned or unethically conceived experiments.
Most likely, my counter-point here is almost a waste of time. But we hardly even remember
what Fleming was working on when he noticed that un-cleaned-up spill which developed into the discovery of penicillin. Serendipity accompanied by knowledge has been an element in many important discoveries.

Play lives!
Mike
