03:04 am - think on this
before god created light, did he have to create dark?
np: incubus - make yourself

(7 shots upside the head | en garde!)

uhm, I believe how it goes is first: nothin. then: light. light, in being in existence, gives birth to: shadow/darkness.

but if darkness is merely the absense of light, how can light *create* darkness (as opposed to shadow, which is a specific type of darkness). isn't dark just wherever light is not, and thereby existed previous to light.

hmm. I see the point, but I keep almost remembering sometihng from either A Wrinkle in Time or A Wind in the Door...also stuff from A Swiftly Tilting Planet...I guess I just equate light and darkness, in this particular sense, as good and evil, really, or adversaries...but then I'm reminded of stuff from The High House and The False House about how the two never existed one without the other....gnarr!

yeppers, i refer to to genesis 1:1-whatever verse i forget... anyway, tis nothing... light... then god seperates light from darkness, then on the third day, night from day :) booya!

hmm, i just looked genesis up online (kjv). as i read it, darkness appeared as soon as he created earth, "upon the face of the deep" whatever that is. then he made light. then he seperated the two. so were they the same thing before he seperated them? i don't quite follow that bit.

In a related story, rumour has it that God had three choices:

  1. create light simultaneously with light bulbs, or
  2. create light bulbs and then create light, or
  3. create light and then create light bulbs.

[...not affiliated with Philips bulbs, the author prefers halogen bulbs...]
