"âWhether the Earth was created in seven days, or seven actual eras," Rubio continued, âI'm not sure we'll ever be able to answer that. It's one of the great mysteries.""
Hmmm, and this is what scientists believe:
"Most scientists agree that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old and the universe is 14.5 billion years old. "
But the new GOP members, those who also oppose women's rights, think:
"Christian Young Earth Creationists, on the other hand, argue that the weeklong account of God creating the Earth and everything in it represents six 24-hour periods (plus one day of rest) and date the age of the Earth between 6,000 and 10,000 years."
WOW! I have a friend whose kids go to a Christian high school, and they are taught creationism instead of evolution! I hope the GOP never regains the WH! Imagine how backwards we would go as a country if the GOP had its way!
