Scientist Fights Church Effort to Hide Museum's Pre-Human Fossils
Leakey called the churches' plans"the most outrageous comments I have ever heard."
He told The Daily Telegraph (London):"The National Museums of Kenya should be extremely strong in presenting a very forceful case for the evolutionary theory of the origins of mankind. The collection it holds is one of Kenya's very few global claims to fame and it must be forthright in defending its right to be at the forefront of this branch of science." Leakey was for years director of the museum and of Kenya's entire museum system.

As a Christian I find it difficult to believe any well known Christian association would care one way or another about this persons bone collection.
It might be interesting to see this scientists collection of present day regression in evolution in a bone collection.
Unless this scientist believes evolution is always in progression only, and never in regression. The theorem of evolution would of course have to include both, unless perhaps the man is some kind of specialist.
