Florida Senator Marco Rubio under scrutiny for not knowing the pseudo scientific age of the earth answer

Those who believe in the theory of evolution have great faith. But,  their faith has no spiritual or life eternal value. This moralmatters.org web author chooses to continually exercise his God-given faith in the Triune God of the holy Scriptures who said: “By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.” – Psalm 33:6

A shining (yet, pathetic) example of political correctness, is the “scientific” crowd taking to task those who do not accept their theory of the age of the earth. According to them, if a school child does not know or is not taught that the earth is umpteen millions of years old; then that child – and especially his parents are stereotyped as being backward and uneducated.

It always amazes and disgusts me, that those who don’t bow to pseudo science’s political correctness god are then held suspect and / or ridiculed for their “Neanderthal” beliefs! Were these so-called (earth’s old age) “scientists” around (in the very beginning) when they claimed it began? The following news piece leads one to believe that the earth’s age is, as “scientists have long estimated at 4.54 billion years.” That’s an outright fabrication [lie]. In my lifetime, I recall the “scientific” estimation of the earth’s age being considerably altered by so-called “scientists!” Their stories and their estimations, continually change.

The reality is, these know-it-all so-called “scientists,” are basing their estimations more on conjecture and the theory of evolution, rather than true science. They also do not take into account the historical Biblical record and the cataclysmic results of the Great (Noah’s) Flood. These same pseudo scientists have no desire to reconcile the various scientific disciplines, such as geology with that of mankind’s earliest recorded (historical) records.

Marco Rubio: Actual Age Of Earth Is ‘One Of The Great Mysteries’ – huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/19/

>>>>>>>> Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) isn’t qualified to answer a question about how old the earth is, he told GQ in a recent interview.

“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’s Michael Hainey. “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.”

Rubio continued, refusing to take a stance on the planet’s age, which scientists have long estimated at 4.54 billion years……… <<<<<<<<< – huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/19/

Those who refuse to believe in the (true) Triune God of the Scriptural revelation, are content to live in their sin and rebellion against Him. Many of them choose to grasp for the straw of evolution. It is (to them), a convenient way (though mistaken way) to avoid their Creator and ignore their sins against Him and their fellowman. The Scriptures speak of such: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.”  Proverbs 16:25 [NKJV]

    Do you REALLY believe that, for example, the Grand Canyon was created only a few thousand years ago? Trying to make YOUR definition of the Bible’s timeline fit is moronic. One simple question: how do you know God’s “seven days” are the same as ours?

    1. degitt –

      Thank you for taking an interest in reading http://www.moralmatters.org and for your comment. I surmise that you have been the product of the public educational industry which in many areas of our country will not permit opposing views of the origins of the universe and of man to be fairly taught. Hence, if my guess is correct; I am not surprised at your comment. Millions of people who are taught the same, would ask the same two questions.

      In answer to your two questions:

      1 – Yes. I believe that the Grand Canyon did not even take a few thousands of years to be in the making. I believe that it only took days to several weeks, considering the literary historical record of the Great (worldwide) Flood. Please allow yourself to check out the following, which you won’t find in public educational industry (union controlled) textbooks:

      How Long Does It Take for a Canyon to Form? – by John D. Morris, Ph.D.

      Excerpt:

      >>>>>>> ……. Visitors to Grand Canyon as well as eighth grade earth science students have been traditionally taught that the Colorado River, migrating back and forth for 65 million years, coupled with side canyon erosion, has carved out this immense gorge. In recent years, scientists have disproved that idea, leaning now on a great volume of water rushing through the area at a high velocity not very long ago which carved the canyon. (Unfortunately, school students are still being taught the older, long-age model.)

      Let me introduce you to Burlingame Canyon near Walla Walla, Washington. It measures 1500 feet long, up to 120 feet deep, and 120 feet wide, winding through a hillside. A small-scale analogy to Grand Canyon it was observed to form in less than six days……. <<<<<<<<<<

      Why Does ICR Study the Mount St. Helen’s Eruption? – by John D. Morris, Ph.D.
      http://www.icr.org/article/why-does-icr-study-mount-st-helens-eruption/

      2 – The common question about the “days” in Genesis:

      There is no viable reason to believe that the Hebrew word for “day” does not actually mean our 24 hour day. No one (if they believe in the Scriptural divine revelation) has a troubled time accepting this. In the second book of the Bible, we are told that “In six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth; the sea and all that in them is.” [KJV – from memory] In this very same Scripture the Lord is also referencing about the Sabbath Day rest – the 7th day. It is a perfect Scripture example in which is found the hermeneutical [interpretive] principle of the Scripture interpreting Scripture (itself).

      In the final analysis, if a person cannot believe Genesis 1:1 – “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth,” – that person will might as well not fool himself that he can believe Christ’s Gospel (New Testament) words about Him talking about “the beginning” and the “Book of Moses” (the first 5 books of the Bible, known as the Pentateuch)

      By the way – did you read that first related link that posted – the one about Jesus Christ rejecting evolution. Please read it. It may challenge what you were taught in the past.
