Rubio: Creation of Earth One of Those "Great Mysteries"

Seven days, seven million years, whatever.


Tea party-backed Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) says that he's not sure people will ever know if the Earth was created by God in just seven days because "it's one of the great mysteries."

In an interview published in the December issue of GQ magazine, Michael Hainey asked the potential 2016 presidential candidate how old he thought the Earth was.

"I'm not a scientist, man," Rubio replied. "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."
