Genesis 1.14-19

And God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years, and let them be lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light upon the Earth.” And it was so.

And God made the two great lights, the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light upon the Earth, to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness.

And God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.

  1. In 1960 we were on the point of reaching the moon. A very good layman at the church I was serving said, God made the greater light for the day and the lesser light for the night, and he didn’t hold with going to the moon. I told him that if God didn’t want us to go to the moon, then we wouldn’t.

  2. If we’d been doing it for the glory of God, rather than the glory of an exploitive economic system, we might have been much farther by know, ala Gerard O’Neill’s energy proposals. Sometimes “why'” is more important than “what.”

  3. this indicates that it was written by a human without complete understanding , not of an omnipotent being who would have known that the moon doesnt emit it's own light .
