Marco Rubio: Actual Age Of Earth Is ‘One Of The Great Mysteries’
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) isn’t qualified to answer a question about how old the earth is, he told GQ in a recent interview.
“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,” Rubio told GQ’s Michael Hainey. “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.”
Rubio continued, refusing to take a stance on the planet’s age, which scientists have long estimated at 4.54 billion years.
“Whether the Earth was created in 7 days, or 7 actual eras, I’m not sure we’ll ever be able to answer that,” he said. “It’s one of the great mysteries.”
Yes, it’s completely unknowable. Therefore, we must rely on the bible version. Let us pray.
