I'm no scientist, so I don't know technical terms. So, please bear with me as I try to posit my question.
I see God created light on day 1. I see stars and planets created on day 4. We see galaxies far far away colliding in what would seem to be the distant past, if that light had to traverse the space in-between. If light and stars and objects that lights bounce off of (planets and such) were created on different days, then is it so unreasonable to consider the possibility that there are at least two different kinds of light? I know we said that if God had created the light between the stars and Earth, then events that appear to have occurred could not have since there has not been enough time that it would have taken for that light to reach us.
But what if there's another kind of light? One that maybe exists without traveling. One that is ever-present, so-to-speak. One that is transparent, that displaces the darkness, making it possible to see things of which the illumination of has not yet reached us. What if there is a kind of light that does not necessarily illuminate things, but instead only makes it possible for the light created on day 4 able to illuminate things? Couldn't it be possible that there is a yet to be discovered form of light that does not have the same properties of light as we understand it, that could make it possible to see distant things without needing to wait for the light from day 4 to travel to us? I mean after all, even using our great telescopes, if the light has not had enough time to reach us, what is it we are seeing through the lens? And what is it that the light on day 1 was lighting if it wasn't everything, including the darkness (sort of). We say Space is dark, but it's really not! The absence of something to see is not necessarily the same as the absence of light!
Which brings up another thought. If I stand at the end of a 186,000 mile long hallway, and someone turns on a light at the other end of that hallway, I have to wait for that light to travel the distance of the entire hallway to be able to see the person at the other end. But, what if someone turns on the lights simultaneously between there and here; would I not be able to immediately see the person at the other end, or do I still need to wait that same amount of time before seeing them?
