Marco Rubio ‘Being Romneyed by Media’ for Giving Obama’s Answer to Genesis Question (+video)

A question about the age of Planet Earth is turning into a media feeding frenzy against Sen. Marco Rubio ever since the Florida Republican said he was not a scientist and didn’t think he was qualified to answer such a question.

In an interview with GQ magazine, Rubio, who many think may run for president in 2016, was asked, “How old do you think the Earth is?”

Rubio responded: “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 seven days, or seven actual eras, I’m not sure we’ll ever be able to answer that. It’s one of the great mysteries.”

New York Times editorial page editor Juliet Lapidos called Rubio’s answer “ludicrous.”
