Glorious, Dazzling, Spectacular Light!

When God created light, He created the laws of chemistry, physics, and mathematics as they relate to our planet, Earth.

By Charlie Tompkins

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.... And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” Gen. 1:1–3.

When I was a freshman in high school 50 years ago, I was fascinated with light. I only knew a little about prisms and had not yet discovered the diffraction grating,1 but I loved the colors of the spectrum. I can remember the first time I heard the words infrared spectrum. Instantly, my horizons expanded as I realized that light is only a very narrow visible band in the vast array of radiations God has made. Although the infrared is invisible, it too can be separated by a prism or a diffraction grating into a spectrum; the same is true for ultraviolet rays and other types of radiations.
