What A Fool Believes (Poem)

GQ: How old do you think the Earth is?

MARCO RUBIO: 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.  Think Progress

God does not use metaphor:
Moses split the Sea.
Jesus rode a dinosaur
All over Galilee.

The Earth is younger than it looks
To scientific eyes.
Fossils, rocks, and Darwin’s books
Are proof of Satan’s lies.

Global warming is a hoax,
Birth control’s a sin,
Sodomites are evil folks:
These truths I revel in.

I won’t give you my precious vote.
Until my views get stated.
Your chance to win will be remote,
But you’ll get nominated.
