Marco Rubio drops some science....
How about this for a rule: If the Bing/Google can answer a question without you having to click, it should be beyond debate.
I know it is controversial to give that much power to an algorithm, but how is it possible for a University of Florida and University of Miami Law School graduate to say that the age of planet earth is one of the great mysteries
Senator Rubio is charming, he seems intelligent, he has a bright future in the GOP. But if this election has taught us anything, for a bright person like him to solve for a tiny small esoteric fringe of the Republican party loyalists is not a way to win elections.
Here's his complete answer to the question how old do you think the Earth is?
Marco Rubio: I'm not a scientist, man. I can tell you what recorded history says, I can tell you what the Bible says, but I think that's a dispute amongst theologians and I think it has nothing to do with the gross domestic product or economic growth of the United States. I think the age of the universe has zero to do with how our economy is going to grow. I'm not a scientist. I don't think I'm qualified to answer a question like that. At the end of the day, I think there are multiple theories out there on how the universe was created and I think this is a country where people should have the opportunity to teach them all. I think parents should be able to teach their kids what their faith says, what science says. Whether the Earth was created in 7 days, or 7 actual eras, I'm not sure we'll ever be able to answer that. It's one of the great mysteries.
