Richard Leakey: I didn’t ever have religion, but I had an uncle who was very much a senior churchman.  I referred to him, the Archbishop of East Africa, and he had the school chaplain as a friend of his, and they tried extremely hard to coerce me into religion, and I became very anti. More anti than I think was necessary, but I simply would not accede to being forced into this, and would frequently be kept out of classes because of irreverent comments and mocking this religious stuff. Frankly, it stayed with me to this day. In fact, don’t get me going.  I’m almost as bad as Richard Dawkins on this issue.
