...assumptions frequent in scientists:

[1] wholes are composed of parts

[2] it is possible to attain an objective perspective wrt an observed process

[3] the findings of science will eventually [or can, in principle] encompass the whole of reality

[4] features of the world which are real [or at least significant] can be measured and expressed quantitatively.

[5] the scientific endeavour is devoid of bias and assumptions.

...if, as you suppose, whatever does not question its assumptions is not science, then I would suggest that little or no science has ever been done.
