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.

How can you read that and not think "Iowa"?

Not only Iowa. At this point Rubio is vying for the soul of the GOP.

 That's a tough tightrope to walk, with opposing factions within the GOP.  He will be interesting to follow.

 Wait, what?  The Bible nor the Catholic church says anything about the age of the earth. 

Rubio married Jeanette Dousdebes, a former bank teller and Miami Dolphins cheerleader, in 1997. She is of Colombian descent, and together they have four children named Amanda, Daniella, Anthony, and Dominic.[52] [53] Rubio and his family live in West Miami, Florida.[12] [54] Rubio attends Roman Catholic and Southern Baptist churches in West Kendall, Florida.[55] [56] [57]

Rubio in 2012 said, "I'm a Roman Catholic. I'm theologically in line

with the Roman Catholic Church. I believe in the authority of the

church, but I also have tremendous respect for my brothers and sisters

in other Christian faiths. I recognize, as the Catholic Church does, that there are excellent teachings of the Word throughout other denominations. " [58]
