    Rubio ignites debate with answer about creationism – CNN Belief Blog - CNN.com Blogs

    Republicans better change there way of thinking if they want a shot at 2016. If you think the Earth is 6-10,000 years old, well, you are an idiot. This creationist BS is one of the reasons why I dont consider myself a Republican. I lean right, but with thinking like this(also abortion etc), why I dont brand myself Republican. I know all Republicans don't think like this, but it is also kinda "automatic"? when you think about that party. To me anyways..

    Maybe God created the earth six thousand years ago and then created the illusion that it is billions of years old.

    Always did have a sense of humor, that One!

    Yea, who cares about the debt, unemployment, wars and the growth of government? It's how old you think the earth might be that's REALLY important....:doubt:

    It is the quality of education our children will receive that is most important. And if the dumb fuck Young Earth Creationists have their way, our kids will be too stupid to work in the hi-tech jobs of the future.

    I already see a serious absence of critical thinking in just about every political topic on this forum, including in your very post. If you don't think it is important to pay attention to what politicians who will be making decisions which affect our education system are saying, then you are an idiot, too.
