Senator Rubio Disqualifies Himself for President

From an interview of Senator Marco Rubio (R, FL) for GQ Magazine:

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.

No, Senator, it’s not a mystery, it’s evading the question.

Or pandering.

And to the extent you actually do give faith an equal footing with science, you disqualify yourself from serious consideration for the presidency of the United States.
