Leakey will be history first

Paleoanthropologist Richard Leakey has predicted the end of skepticism regarding evolution. According to news articles his “family claims to have unearthed ‘much of the existing fossil evidence for human evolution.’" The account of Mark Twain's premature obituary comes to mind. He allegedly commented – "The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated." Since we’re doing predictions, I predict Leakey will be history long before skepticism about evolution disappears. And I hope he changes his mind before then. Let's see. Believe the Bible or believe Leakey?  Believe Leakey or 40 biblical authors? I decided long ago to believe someone who lived, died, and rose again rather than men who died and are dead. No doubt Leakey’s a brilliant man. But he’s no prophet.
