Hmm, it's done a lot of both actually. Just look at something like "dark matter" that's been added into an existing paradigm to make it all work despite there being no real evidence for its existence outside of reconciling how we think things work and how they are observed working. It may yet be the undoing of modern Physics, we'll just have to wait to see.
