No such thing as philosophy free science

I found the Dennet's comment that' there is no such thing as philosophy- free science to be very thought provoking. All of my life I have always viewed science as facts. I was taught to l memorize biology, chemistry and physics as oppose to questioning and thinking about such theories in the world. Our most recent class discussions about multiple dimensions and how science is biased were the first time I've ever connected philosophy with science and questioned what amount of evidence is necessary to make a theory fact.
