Democratic shill, Paul Krugman has seized on a recent GQ interview of Marco Rubio, in the way the editors of GQ hoped, to paint Rubio as a panderer to the anti-science fundamentalist that supposedly make up the Republican party. Rubio was asked by GQ how old he thought the Earth was and Rubio responded with a vague answer calculated to offend no one. Of course the liberal pundits know the correct answer is 4.5 billion years and any one who disagrees is to out of touch with reality to be able to govern the nation. Except of course for Barak Obama. Obama was asked a similar question to Rubio and gave basically the same answer as Rubio. Of course the left sees the glass as half full for Obama and half empty for Rubio. Obama was merely pandering to the uneducated poor that his candidacy depended on and who otherwise know what is best for the nation and doesn’t really believe this stuff, how could he, the left loves him. Rubio on the other hand probably does believe creationism and if he doesn’t he is pandering to neanderthals who have no idea what is good for them. The facts are that much of the country believes superstitious nonsense about the creation of the world and those votes are just as important as those who maintain scientific theories. None the less, ones beliefs concerning events that are beyond ones own observations are not a good gauge as to ones rationality in those areas one can more readily observe. remember, unless you have done an investigation yourself on the age of the world, you are basically accepting an opinion on faith. This has nothing to do, as Rubio says, on how you understand the GDP or how to grow the economy. Keep in mind the discover of Newtonian Physics (Issac Newton if you were curious) also believed God created the world and that Revelation was a mathematical code to determine the end of the world.
