NEW RULE You can’t run for president if you don’t know how old the world is. Quizzed recently, Marco Rubio answered, “I’m not a scientist, man.” As if you have to be Galileo to Google, “How old is the earth?” And when asked his thoughts on evolution, Chris Christie said, “None of your business!” Which is what you say when someone asks you if you made a baby with the maid. Fellas, if you and your party want to be taken seriously, you don’t have to recite the collected works of Stephen Hawking — just stop regurgitating the Facebook page of Sarah Palin.
Bill Maher, NYT
Its scary that these guys would say these things, with no sense of the irony of their ignorance. Its far scarier that so many Americans are nodding their heads in agreement with that ignorance…..
I know, and creationism really hasn’t been an issue for the GOP for most of my lifetime. I hate slipping backwards and losing consensus on well-established science.
