Mary Leakey also said pretty much the same thing just before her death at the age of 83.
Although Leakey was convinced that man had evolved from ape-like ancestors, she was equally convinced that scientists will never be able to prove a particular scenario of human evolution. As it is, popular sciences often refuse to admit that there are significant limitations to the evolutionary interpretations that are given out to the public as "gospel truth." Consider the evidence for yourself and judge if popular science has not and is not overstepping itself when it comes to its conclusions on "Early Man." or "dawn man." Discovered in 1912 by Charles Dawson, a medical doctor and amateur paleontologist.
Three months before her death, she said in an interview, "All these trees of life with their branches of our ancestors, that's a lot of nonsense." Biases are of course part of human nature. Dawson found a mandible and a small piece of a skull in a gravel pit near Piltdown England.
So, some caution might be in order before even long established theories are accepted as the "gospel truth", especially when some of the most famous scientists in the field start to question their own life's work.
In considering the theory of human evolution it is interesting to note that some very well known scientists have actually suggested that the line of human evolution is far from clear.
For example, in 1990, Richard Leakey himself said that, "If pressed about man's ancestry, I would have to unequivocally say that all we have is a huge question mark.
To date, there has been nothing found to truthfully purport as a transitional specie to man, including Lucy, since 1470 was as old and probably older.
It is fine to hypothesize that similarities between different creatures are the result of common ancestry, but since such similarities have been and are often conflicting when compared with other features, it might be prudent to hold back a little when making conclusions about any sort of definite taxonomic classification model or even relationship.
The conclusions that are drawn from the evidence are often and have often been very much exaggerated to fit personal beliefs and biases.
Yes, even scientists have biases and favorite theories.
No one, not even a scientist, likes to see a theory that has cost a great deal of money and much of one's personal time and effort, go up in smoke.
