1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.2 And the earth was without form,and void;and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.3 And God said,Let there be light:and there was light.4 And God saw the light that it was good:and God divided the light from the darkness.5 And God called the light Day,and the darkness he called Night.And the evening and the morning were the first day....
14 And God said,Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night;and let them be for signs,and for seasons,and for days,and years:15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day,and the lesser light to rule the night:he made the stars also.17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness:and God saw that it was good.
genesis account is relative to earth. there is every reason to believe that the universe itself existed for a long time before god put attention to earth.
light was around for awhile.
light like temperature can get brighter and brighter, but there is an absolute darkness.
both heat and light scientifically are not opposites of cold and darkness respectively. scientifically they are the lack of.

If,before the universe was created there was only a void,then that means no light,no heat etc.If it had the slightest bit of anything then it wouldn't be a void.(many creation legends talk of a void in the beginning)
Which means its possible that there is an absolute light,mankind just hasn't discovered it yet.
Science says they are not opposites because there is not limit to heat but there is to cold.Isn't this down to knowledge?
Scientists are getting closer and closer to reaching absolute zero,what happens in the future if they get passed that,even by a millimetre?
What happens if a place is discovered in the universes that has a temperature more than absolute zero?
...evil cannot just be the absence of good can it?

Here it clearly shows that darkness existed before light and,as the sun wasn't created until the 4th day,cold existed before heat.
How is it possible then for darkness and cold to be absences of heat and light when they didn't exist until after??
And,following that logic,evil cannot just be the absence of good can it?
