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.
