The question demonstrates the scientific illiteracy of the questioner. First, the age of the earth is NOT 4b years. The earth was created at the BIG BANG about 14b earth years ago just as Genesis 1 says. But in the beginning, it was without form, just as Genesis 1 says. It formed piece by piece through a process, then over billions of earth years. Second, we've known for over 100yrs that there is no single "time". The time you measure depends on where you are standing when you measure the time. If you are God, you will measure 6 days. If you measure from the earth, you get 14b years. Both times are correct! The questioner apparently doesnt understand science. He needs to take a physics course. The Bible is correct.

LOL. You have hit the nail right on the head! I would add that 99% of "journalists" and at least 95% of DemocRAT politicians couldn't answer that question, either. I would add to Dr. Kengor's article by stating that the entire GOP needs to be intolerant of these tricks and call out these morons. Further, they should sponsor and dictate all of the ground rules for all future debates to avoid libidiots like Candy Crowley running them.

In a recent interview, Senator Marco Rubio, effectively the Republican front-runner for 2016, was asked, “How old do you think the Earth is?”

It’s a question of utter irrelevance to the country’s status and whether Marco Rubio would be a good president. Rubio’s answer was excellent: “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...
