This one has been going on for some time now, but it is still an active fight of which we should remain aware. Kenyan Pentecostals are trying to prevent the display of Kenya’s famous humanoid fossils in the national museum along with their evolutionary explanation. (See the ABC News story here.)
The major complaint is that the theory of human evolution presented with the fossils is presented as fact. But the actual fact is that there is no alternative scientific explanation for these fossils. Christians should not be involved in trying to hid the evidence. I think it’s a hopeless task, but the only way to provide an honest reason to present an honest explanation would be to produce such a scientific explanation–coherent, testable,and capable of explaining the available evidence. I’m not holding my breath.
