Bryan Fischer, the director of issues analysis of the conservative fundamentalist American Family Association, says that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) was not wrong for suggesting that the Earth was created in seven days because the only “eyewitness account” is in the Bible.
Answers in Genesis “researcher” Dr. Terry Mortenson told Fischer on Tuesday that Rubio had given a “deft answer” when he told GQ magazine that he didn’t know the exact age of the Earth because “I’m not a scientist, man.”
“If fact, I would submit that scientist cannot tell us the age of the Earth,” Mortenson insisted. “The only way we can know the age of the Earth is if we have eyewitness testimony of somebody who was there, and that we have in the Bible, which is the inspired word of the creator.”
