When you make a mistake in life, you have to face the consequences, brunt or whatever it is. It can go unnoticed, but your conscience (if kicking) would make you feel little contrite anyway. This is about unknowingly done mistakes. Deliberate mistakes…A tougher verdict awaits for them.
But science gets funny and weird sometimes. A mistake is still a mistake. But the hierarchy changes. A deliberate mistake is lot better than a mistake that happens unintentionally. In case of the first one, it’s curiosity that holds the reign, in case of the latter, it’s the ignorance.
