Rubio admits he knows Earth is 4.5 billion years old

At a Politico event, Sen. Marco Rubio insisted he knew how old the Earth was even though he declined to answer the question in an interview last month.

“The answer I gave was actually trying to make the same point the President made a few years ago, and that is, there is no scientific debate on the age of the Earth,” said Rubio. “I mean, it’s established pretty definitively as at least four and a half billion years old. I was referring to a theological debate, and which is a pretty healthy debate.”
