I have looked at the two (light/darkness) as opposite versus the typical opinion of dark is bad. As the bearer of light or eating from the tree of knowledge. Dark is a good think rest or serene but when you bring light into darkness you have trouble.
Light is often looked at knowledge but the knowledge it is reffered to, if taken to much one can surely go blind. You dig? Now back to the dark where I hide.

I define light as the revelation of truth, earth-wise or heaven-wise.
I define darkness as lies, living for the second due to...
I am still scared of the dark.

A man was also the inventr of the first multi-shot firearm, Samuel Colt.Source
All the other gun-innovatiosn were also by men.
Explosives have existed for centuries, and the first human to experiment with gunpowder would have to be credited with that. Of course there is no way to confirm who that was. Most wars are fought by a majority man military and started by men. Men rule the majority of nations across the globe and are also responsible for most of the tyrannical dicatorship nations which bring unjust suffering and death to innocent citizens.
I tend to believe females are victimized the most on this planet.
Colonel-Engineer Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova (March 6, 1937- ) was a Soviet cosmonaut and the first woman in space. She was on the Vostok 5 mission which launched on June 16, 1963, and orbited the Earth 48 times. The flight lasted 2.95 days (=70.8 hours). During her space mission, Tereshkova's radio call name was "Chaika," which means "seagull" in Russian.
The Vostok 5 spacecraft was recovered on June 19, 1963, in the Soviet Union. Tereshkova had parachuted from the spacecraft after earth's atmospheric re-entry; she landed about 380 miles northeast of Karaganda, Kazakhstan. Valentina Tereshkova was given the title "Hero of the Soviet Union," received the Order of Lenin, and was honored with the United Nations Gold Medal of Peace. She never flew in space again.
Tereshkova had been an expert in parachuting and a factory worker before she wrote to the Soviet space program, volunteering her service. She and the other candidates to be in the first woman in space were given extensive testing and interviews (beginning in December 1961). Tereshkova and Tatyana Torchillova were chosen in May 1963, to train for the Vostok 6 flight. Tereshkova was the final choice.
On November 3, 1963, Tereshkova married another cosmonaut (Andrian Nikolayev, who also went into space). They had a daughter, Elena Andrionovna, who was born in 1964; Elena (now a doctor in Russia) was the first child born to parents who both went into space. Tereshkova went on to graduate from the Zhuykosky Air Force Engineering Academy in 1969, and in 1976, earned a degree in Technical Science.
