Rubio: OK for parents
to teach ´multiple theories´
on Earth´s age

The Hill [Washington DC], by Daniel Strauss

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/19/2012 1:28:38 PM

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) says he´s not certain whether the planet was created by God in seven days or in "seven actual eras" — telling GQ magazine it´s up to parents to teach their children either a faith-based history of Earth or a scientific one. (Snip)"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," Rubio told GQ

Comments:
Wonder if they´ve asked Obama these same questions?

Up to the parents. Ok, that´s fine, but remember that there are millions of booger-eating American morons out there "raising" kids who are far too ignorant to take care of even themselves. If you don´t think so, spend a little time watching daytime loser television.

U no I meen?

Certain things such as racism, hating, superstition, brain-dead fundamentalism and all the rest don´t come naturally to little kids. They have to be taught -- usually by their idiot parents.

that´s a dispute amongst theologians

Earth´s age is a matter of theology?

Hey Marco, ever heard of Geology?

No wonder educated voters are so allergic to GOP (that is a matter of fact based on polling, I am just a messenger here!) - scientific illiteracy.

Obviously, the whole point of this interview was to get Rubio to commit Akin-Mourdock on himself. These Dems plan ahead. Allow me to offer a bit of advice. Just say no to these interviews, or, if you can´t stop yourself, say I´m not going to comment on that. I am here to talk about public policies about which I have concerns, expertise and interest relating to the survival of the republic.

#2, he´s referring to the dispute where literalists want to take the KJV 7 days as 7 24 hour periods and those who explain the word used that was translated back then as day meant an indeterminate amount of time: (a nano-sec or 5 trillion years or something in-between, who knows?) and so the Bible as a phenomenological work doesn´t say exactly how long or how it was done, just that it happened and in what order.

Be carfull of saying people are "scientifically Illiterate" if they express an opinon that differse from yours. Remember when scientists scoffed at the idea of plate tectonics? Now its been proven and expains how earthquakes happen. I´m an "old earther" myself. But remember that the Bible is not a science book. It is a book about our relationship with each other and with God.

Quite true about the dispute between the literalists and the allegorists, #5. But Rubio is a Roman Catholic, is he not? He could simply have cited RC teaching on theistic evolution and left it at that.

The Hill will normally put the worst spin on anything a GOP pol says.

That headline is awkward and makes it sound as if Rubio is granting parents a right to raise their children.

But I agree with his thrust, what you personally believe about God, or a biblical creation, or dinosaurs, or the Big Bang, is not a President´s concern or business.

The President is limited and not Czar or Pharaoh. I hope it remains that way. The trend is not good.

1. This has nothing whatsoever to do with governing. It´s a ´gotcha´ exercise by the media Leftists. #3 is correct.

2. Discussing the aspects of geologic age and Creationism is in general a Fool´s Errand.

3. Rubio does not meet the Constitutional requirements for President or Vice-President. It wastes time and is embarrassing to see so much fawning over him.

#4, the precise scientific definitions/uses of ´theory´ and ´hypothesis´ are important, but rarely understood or used correctly by ´civilians.´

I might vote for Akin, I might vote for Mourdock, probably would in spite of my knowing they were scientific illiterates, since I know that their opposition is as well, and I like other aspects of their beliefs.

But it sure is sad, and double-sad to see Rubio is another one. That´s two strikes against Rubio, btw, his announced positions on immigration and high-tech jobs was #1.

If he gains 300 pounds before the 2016 primaries, that would be a third strike.

Still what the heck, I voted for Romney and I didn´t like him, either.

But yeah, it would be highly amusing to hear Obama asked this question. He probably thinks the world was hatched out of a giant green poobah bird egg just moments before his own birth.

#2, your take on why ´educated´ people shun the GOP is ironic when you think about it. First of all the ´educated´ people I think you refer to are liberals, correct? I understand their shock that any ´educated´ person would believe anything written in the Bible. They know all about the world, reality, ´science,´ and pretty much the collective wisdom of all of humanity. Just ask them something. Guns? Oh, you will get an earful about the savage nature of humans and how some humans must protect them from themselves. Money? Sure, when you have wasted all of your savings, charge MORE. You´ll be back on your feet in no time. Sex? Easy, gay marriage is actually better somehow and babies aren´t babies. Next question?

It is about faith, miracles, nature, life and love. On the one hand you have a guide to help you overcome your base instincts and on the other you have ´enlighten´ examples like George Soros. Do you think George respects anyone or anything over himself?

The irony part is ´educated´ people mock people of faith, but they worship and have absolute faith in a media that shapes EVERY bit of information through a leftist filter. Which is why headlines that we saw every day with Bush, never appear with a Pres who let an ambassador be murdered by incompetence or neglect.

It hasn´t been that long ago that science taught the steady state theory and an eternal universe and creationists believed the universe had a beginning or that there was something called Piltdown man, or that we were all at risk of global cooling. Science isn´t quite as settled as some would say.

This is a disappointing string of comments. First of all, the media is already out to destroy anyone even slightly viable for 2016 - so sure, let´s help. Second, there is some argument that Obama doesn´t meet the Constitutional requirements to be President either. But he just go re-elected. Maybe we should hold our fire for now.

I am not a young Earth creationist, but I do believe in First Amendment protections for the free pratice of religion and understand that the young Earth creationists are no so much rejecting science as they are beliving in the ability of God to perform supernatural miracles that cannot be explained by science. While I don´t necessarily understand or agree with the need of many Fundamentalists to believe in a young Earth or the literal truth of every word in the Bible, I often find the faith in God that drives them admirable and do not find the believe in a young Earth worthy of mockery. Unless your doctor tries to whip out some leeches to treat your cancer, does it really matter how old they think the Earth is or whether they believe that every word in the Bible is literally true?

Science changes all the time. Remember when dinosaurs were cold blooded and dragged their tails? Well, until they didnt. Does DC current flow from positive to negative, or negative to positive? It depends when you went to school or what day of the week it is. Remember when a processor could not switch faster that 333Mhz because electricity couldnt move any faster than that? Gee, thats kind of out the window, too.
Science prides itself on its method, but it is no more accurate and far less lasting than theology.
Teach your kids what you believe to be true. It cant possibly be any more wrong than what the educated elites are teaching.

Since radio-carbon dating only dates back, at most, in the tens of thousands of years, the theories about the age of the earth are based on assumptions about half-lives, etc. and extrapolations that are much less reliable. The simple truth is that no one knows for sure how old the earth is. And not even a credible theory for how life sprung up from the rocks.

Agree w/posters that it was a "gotcha" Q.

Here´s what I would have said:
"Theories will always abound about how old the earth is, since there are about 16 geological/astrophysical ways to try to measure it. A thorough education would include exploring every single one of them."

According to Gallup´s 2012 poll, only 15% do not believe in God being involved in the origins of the Earth. A majority believe that God did it as is (46%) and the rest believe God guided the process. So this is only an issue to atheist activists. Their outcry is meaningless.

Here is th only acceptable answer: "Parents? Teaching their children? Nonsense. First of all, children do not belong to their parents, far less to amy imaginary ´God´ in the sky. Children belong to the State, and the Stae will determine what its children will be taught. Parents only have two jobs: to shut up and pay up."

It was a gotcha. He strode right into it. The fatal flaw in trying to seem sophisticated and worldly. Better to keep it simply.

Rubio is trying so hard to impress that you can almost feel him straining. Such eager beavers give me pause. Better a bit more slow and steady - and street smart.

As for those leeches mentioned by #22, they are back in medicine, enabling such esoteric procedures as the reattachment of "appendages":

Sherman said the primary use today is draining congested blood in damaged appendages or skin flaps. The leeches have a natural anticoagulant that breaks up small clots and keeps new ones from forming. That allows pools of blood to drain and keeps blood flowing freely until new vessels connect.

I fail to understand the doubt about Rubio´s eligibility for the Presidency. He was born in the USA to parents who were legal immigrants (and who were naturalized four years after he was born). That makes him a citizen "born in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction therof."

For most of human history time was counted by sunrise and sunset and edited by season and there were no years just the span from one full moon to the next.
The Bible even credits God with a thousand years in his sight could be as a day. So how was that day counted?
It´s time for all the natural born thinkers to read the 14th amendment and decide why should they use a British common law ruling of who and why is anyone a citizen of the United States. uThe constitution is not based on those type of common law.
It´s time to quit eating our own expounding impossible standards that will please the far right and insist that is conservatism.

Appearing on Thursday´s O´Reilly Factor, former CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson claimed that CBS "had barely begun to scratch the surface" of the "Fast and Furious" scandal before the network moved on from the story. She noted that the network showed similar reluctance for its coverage of Benghazi and the ObamaCare rollout. Before her resignation last month, Attkisson covered Obama administration controversies like "Fast and Furious" and Benghazi and her reporting helped the CBS Evening News win the Edward R.

The context for this little chestnut of racial nastiness was a heated floor debate in the Illinois legislature over a proposed education reform bill. The fireworks started when Democratic Representative Linda Chapa LaVia, who is Hispanic, delivered a speech criticizing charter schools. Ms. Chapa LaVia was no doubt casting aspersions on behalf of teachers unions — who’ve contributed heavily to her campaigns, are bankrupting the state, and don’t much care for competition. In defense of the status quo — which traps far too many children, especially children of color, in failing public schools — Chapa LaVia appealed to her fellow

Not sex as in Hillary Clinton’s gender, but sex as in sex scandals. And by the way, the grand narrative of Barack Obama’s presidency is about race, and that won’t change until he leaves office. These are among the pronouncements in a pair of New York Magazine essays: Frank Rich writing about Hillary, and Jonathan Chait weighing in on Barack. Now nobody with a pulse could deny that

After Attorney General Eric Holder revealed that he was considering forcing gun owners to wear identifying bracelets, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin harshly warned him that he better not even think about trying to implement the idea. "Eric, ´You don´t want to go there, buddy,´" she declared on Wednesday. Palin posted a photo (see below) of the three bracelets she often wears and explained the significance of each: Hey Eric, these are my identifying bracelets: One honors our military; One honors independent Americans who have a healthy distrust of Washington´s permanent political class and who will fight against elitists hell-bent

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not
