Marco Rubio defers to science…kind of.

Marco Rubio has gotten a little more specific about the age of the Earth.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida attempted to clear up Wednesday his controversial answer to a question about the Earth’s age last month.

“Science says (the Earth) is about 4.5 billion years old. My faith teaches that’s not inconsistent,” Rubio said at a Politico Playbook Breakfast in Washington. “God created the heavens and the Earth, and science has given us insight into when he did it and how he did it.”

Added Rubio, “Science has also established that people don’t rise from the dead.  Fuck scientists.”

“The more science learns,” he continued, “the more I am convinced that God is real.”

…and that a woman was converted into a pillar of salt (chemistry), that a Jewish guy walked on water (physics), and that a global flood took place (geology).  This guy wouldn’t know science if it was fucking him*.

The more Marco Rubio reads science, the more he’s convinced that dudes can get pregnant.

    Wouldn’t the pillar of salt be nuclear physics?

  • Rakatosh

    By “healthy theological debate” does he mean “contest to see who can be more wrong”?

    “The more science learns,” he continued, “the more I am convinced that God is real.”
    Because the more science learns, the farther behind the curve his know-nothing ass gets.

    Reminds me of this from Hitchens’s God is Not Great

    Pierre Bayle, writing a few decades later, was fond of stating all the claims of reason against a given belief, only to add “so much the greater is the triumph of faith in nevertheless believing.”

    While not science exactly, I would include:
    Human flesh can become one or more crackers (cooking).
    A few loaves and fishes can feed multitudes (accounting).
