Well, I don't know. If a scientist performs an experiment and the result shows that my car is simultaneously blue all over and red all over, I'd say the absurdity of that result should give one pause.
We don't take absurd results in mathematics (or philosophy) in stride; a mathematician who showed that 1+1=3 would have a lot of 'splaining to do. Why does the physicist get a pass?
