After Sen. Marco Rubio made comments in which he left the door open to "young earth" creationism, a cry of protest went up from the reality-based community. It is unfortunate when a politician does this, as it undermines science education and may be misleading to poorly educated members of the audience.
In situations like this, it can be helpful to set the record straight, and this is why I am happy to support an online petition asking President Obama to affirm the correct age of our planet. I just hope he has learned something since he made similar comments in 2008.
If you have not already done so, please consider signing the petition.
