As Marco Rubio said in his now infamous 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."

Even Pat Robertson (!!??!!) disagrees with him! Imagine that the new generation of GOP leadership is to the right of Pat Robertson in scientific discourse -
"You go back in time, you've got radiocarbon dating. You got all these things, and you've got the carcasses of dinosaurs frozen in time out in the Dakotas. They're out there. So, there was a time when these giant reptiles were on the Earth, and it was before the time of the Bible. So, don't try and cover it up and make like everything was 6,000 years. That's not the Bible. ... If you fight science, you are going to lose your children, and I believe in telling them the way it was," - Pat Robertson.

What do other faithless people like me think about this?
