"â€œWhether the Earth was created in seven days, or seven actual eras,â€ Rubio continued, â€œI'm not sure we'll ever be able to answer that. It's one of the great mysteries.â€"
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!
