Marco Rubio Explains How Old the Earth Is

Marco Rubio is a winner, he could quite possibly save the Republican party in the future. I know they'd never do a two-Floridian ticket - but a center-right, business-friendly Jeb Bush / Marco Rubio combo would be formidable in 2016, for example.
And the man can dance. See how he deftly he answers this loaded question in a GQ profile this week...
GQ: How old do you think the Earth is?
Marco Rubio: 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 7 days, or 7 actual eras, I'm not sure we'll ever be able to answer that. It's one of the great mysteries.
That was downright Clintonian!
Head over for more with the Senator.
