They'd be putting themselves at grave risk, if they're Christians:

E.g., the Catholic Catechism at explicates, with evidence
from God Hisself:

< 2119 Tempting God consists in putting his goodness and almighty power to
the test by word
or deed. Thus Satan tried to induce Jesus to throw himself down from the
Temple and, by this
gesture, force God to act.[49] Jesus opposed Satan with the word of God:
"You shall not put
the LORD your God to the test."[50] The challenge contained in such
tempting of God
wounds the respect and trust we owe our Creator and Lord. It always harbors
doubt about his
love, his providence, and his power.[51] >

Bad, doublebad double-blind scientists.
