FL Sen. Marco Rubio has something in common with Sarah Palin

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) declined to tell GQ Magazine how old he thought the earth is. Instead Rubio hid behind the so-called Young Earth Creationism view, saying it’s “one of those great mysteries.”

Rubio regaled GQ magazine with this fun word salad:

“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.”

Oy Vey! The majority of scientists who study such things concur our earth is 4.54 billion years old based on evidence from radiometric age dating of meteorite material.

If Rubio’s bizarre response to GQ’s question sounds familiar, well, it should. Sarah Palin told the Los Angeles Times, “dinosaurs and humans walked the earth at the same time.”

Marco Rubio, a Cuban-American, is rumored to be a potential Republican candidate for president in 2016. Republicans believe he can successfully attract Hispanics to the GOP.

    So, Marco Rubio’s great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great granddaddy had a dinosaur for a pet in Cuba? OK. 😦

  2. I wonder if he can see Cuba from his house?

  3. Brigadoon says:

    “I wonder if he can see Cuba from his house?”

    ROFL! Good one!

  4. The Real Adam says:

    With this answer, Marco Rubio, comes across as both totally insane and completely stupid.

    If he thinks opining this way will pave the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue then he needs a wake up call. The overwhelming, vast majority of Americans embrace science and not some nutty religious dogma.

  5. Adirondacky says:

    Rubio’s answer is gibberish. Pure, unadulterated gibberish.

  6. Randy Arroyo says:

    What an idiot. Maybe the intense heat and humidity has friend Rubio’s pea brain?

  7. Zarathustra says:

    Marco Rubio…. face it, you’re dumber than a rock…. You should not be sitting in a legislature writing laws to govern people smarter than yourself, You probably should hold a job as a checkout person at a Publix….

  8. Zarathustra says:

    Brigadoon…… Good one…….! 😉

  9. fran says:

    Sen Marco Rubio needs to learn that age old lesson: Engage brain before putting mouth in gear.
    Then again, he is a rich source for comedic material- this “faith n science” speech is a classic!
    Tell us more Sen Rubio…..

  10. Joe in Colorado says:

    What is Rubio saying? Teach creationism along side evolution? Hardcore science along side Young Earth Creationism? If this is the case, then the GOP has learned nothing from the 2012 election and have found in Rubio another Mitt Romney to run up the flag pole.

  11. feminazi says:

    Mr. Rubio isn’t afraid to admit he isn’t “a scientist” however he is afraid to say the earth is billions of years old. I don’t understand this? Who is afraid of offending? Christians? Jews? Muslims? The fact is, most people from these faiths embrace science — science isn’t anti-religion, but it is fact-driven and to say, the earth is billions of years old doesn’t make you less devout. Shame on Mr. Rubio.

  13. Bill Hussein O'Reilly says:

    Close your mouth, Marco or someone may try to insert something in it.

  14. Zarathustra says:

    Look at Rubio’s pose…. It’s like he just discovered that the Earth is round… What a Rube-io

  15. Harry says:

    “Close your mouth, Marco or someone may try to insert something in it.”

    A foot? A sock?

  16. Unconditional1 says:

    Or Harry, perhaps a kielbasa?

  17. Scott Dancer says:

    Hey Marco Rubio, listen up.

    Assuming you’re a Christian then you believe men and women were created in God’s image and endowed with attributes not accorded to lower life forms. Humans have intelligence thanks to larger brains than cats and dogs and insects.

    If you accept this premise, then you must also believe we were given these brains in order to think and reason, to analyze and problem solve. Humans travel into space, fly like birds in airplanes, cure disease and discovered planets in our galaxy that may very likely support life.

    That said, if you believe this to be true, why can’t believe humans used this God-given intellect to determine the age of the earth?

  18. Rachel says:

    REPORTER: Do you believe in science, Mr. Rubio?
    RUBIO: No.

  19. Here in TN, they have taken steps though new legislation to allow creationism back into the classroom. This law turns the clock back nearly 100 years here in the seemingly unprogressive South and is simply embarrassing. There is no argument against the Theory of Evolution other than that of religious doctrine. The Monkey Law only opens the door for fanatic Christianity to creep its way back into our classrooms. You can see my visual response as a Tennessean to this absurd law on my artist’s blog at with some evolutionary art and a little bit of simple logic.

  20. Brigadoon says:

    But Marco Rubio does believe in the Easter Bunny. 😉

  21. No worries … Hillary can beat him.

    EVERY TIME RUBIO speaks….. He sounds STUPID!!!!!
