← Evolution skeptics will soon be silenced by science: Richard Leakey

I don't think Leakey is "over-optimistic" about man kinds chance of accepting science over superstition. What he actually says is that accepting the evidence of evolution and mass extinction is our best chance of avoiding climate induced extinction but he is far certain this can be prevented. "We may be on the cusp of some very real disasters that have nothing to do with whether the elephant survives, or a cheetah survives, but if we survive," he warned.
