Marco, Marco, Marco…

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.

~ Marco Rubio (1971-05-28 age:46) Republican senator from Florida.

Rubio sits on the Science and Space Subcommittee in the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, which oversees by far the largest scientific research budget in the world and yet he is utterly clueless about even the most basic science, his mind addled with religious superstition. Is this based on ignorance or political expedience? As the New York Times writes about Rubio, If his response was more proof of cunning than idiocy, it was still ludicrous.
