Light from Darkness

On the first day of creation, when the earth was a dark empty expanse of water, brooded over by the Spirit of God, he called light into being, and separated the light from the darkness.

Pray tell, how exactly does one do that- separate light from darkness.  There is no lamp to light, no sun to set in Flagstaff, Arizona.

In the Hebrew there is spacial separation, not just periods of light and dark alternating.

Years later, when Job was trying to get a handle on why bad things happen to good people,  God responded,

Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?

Tell me if you understand. . . .

What is the way to the abode of light?

And where does darkness reside?

Can you take me to their places?

Do you know the paths to their dwellings? (Job 38:19, 20)

Can you separate the light from the darkness?

God can.
