Anti-Science Republicans Appear to Need Arithmetic Lesson on Election Outcome

http://thinkprogress.org/election/2012/11/19/1213261/marco-rubio-flirts-with-creationism-says-hes-unsure-how-old-the-earth-is/


President Barack Obama was re-elected in 2012, to lead our nation for 4 more years. Yet, thousands of Republicans recoiled into denial rather than accept this outcome.  Many, led by Vice-Presidential candidate Congressman Paul Ryan, seem to act like the election never really happened.  They appear poised to return to government "obstruction as usual".  

Now, it turns out, one Republican, the Florida Senator Rubio, even courts voters who support the Biblical theory of Creationsim, over the sciences of geology and archaeology. Could this courting of Creationists mean Rubio wants to appeal to Christian right wing voters so he can garner support for his own future Presidential bid? Well, I can't imagine any anti science politicians as a leaders of the free world. Nevertheless, Rubio is courting Creationists.

Republicans who continue suggesting belief in Creationism is somehow a valid science, probably have a hard time understanding how their political party lost the 2012 presidential election.  

In other words, politicians like Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, along with former Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas, would rather believe our earth was created, exactly as we know it today, in 7 Biblical days, rather than accept the science of geologists who have determined the earth evolved since the creation, 4.5 billion years ago.  

Regardless of their resistance to accepting scientific discovery, Creationists are still capable of understanding simple arithmetic.  So, Creationists like Rubio and Huckabee need to know and understand this outcome.  Americans can not move backward:
