Hello HughBe.<quoted text>
1.Not all lights that are seen by ME are fires.
2. My response was based on your question ONLY. I thought that it was a good question but was unaware of the background.
3. It is said that he was a prophet and if that is correct it is highly likely,but not necessarily so, that he knew.
Your posts are full of wisdom and sadly wasted on an uneducated non-gentile like bu(utteredbuttturdlick)ford.
He poses as a "Christian" but refuses to understand the explanatiuons given in Christian circles about "light" and "fire".
All in all he is an utter waste of space on planet earth.
This ought to point him in a direction if he wants to defend his Christian credentials...
First, realize that light can exist without the sun. Candles, fires, flashlights, glowworms, car headlights, matches, and many other objects give off light without the sun. All that was needed for light to exist on the first day was a light source.
The sun and moon are light-givers, but they are not the only light-givers.
Light energy first
GOD ACTIVATED LIGHT ENERGY FIRST, then great masses of material were gathered together and set burning in complex chemical and nuclear reactions, and the sun and moon were CREATED TO SERVE AS LIGHT BEARERS, or light-givers, for the earth.
Dr. Henry Morris made an interesting point about this passage when he said that because God is light, dwelling in light (1 Timothy 6:16), He did not have to create light. But God did create darkness (Isaiah 45:7)as the initial state of the unformed and uninhabited earth (Genesis 1:2). He created the primeval darkness to form a division between day and night.
Let bu(tteredbuttturdlick)ford challenge his own so called "christians" before challenging the Holy Quran.
As bu(butteredbuttturdlick)ford is uneducated he wouldn't know much physics..light in terms of particles waves or other...
Let him continue to assume that only fire "creates" light!
Prophet and Quran are light years ahead of this idiot...
