But eventually they get it right, even in handling the rare "odd-ball"
cases ...

We can't forget the "time factor" ... it just takes a lot of time for
some things ... time is needed to learn things ... to debate ... to
argue ... to make mistakes ... to gain experience ... to go back to the
black board or drawing board, to throw a lot a scrap paper in the waste
basket, but eventually science pulls through ... that's my feeling
anyway :-)
