When Thomas Edison made light was he just stealing God's idea?

    Hahaha. I'm not sure if you're even looking for an answer, but I'll try to give one anyways.

    I guess a believer would say that, instead of Edison "making light," he was just improving on God's invention. (And improving on an existing invention can be patented, btw.) God invented the concept OF light, and Edison made it easier for people to have light at home when the sun had gone down. So no, no one was technically stealing from anybody.

    Humorous deduction though.

    Thomas Edison invented the light bulb. That's not the same thing as making light. For that you need to go far back in time to when primitive people first discovered how to make fire.

    Most likely someone was making a flint tool and noticed that you got sparks when you struck the flint. Then the sparks set fire to some dried leaves or something.

    God created the resources Edison needed, and He created Edison, therefore, God created light

    What, the ****. Show me where in the Bible God outlines the use of electricity for powering a light globe.

    Hell, tell me where God suggests the Light Globe.

    God made us in his image. Meaning he gave us the ability to create.

    NO because we already know everything was God's creations.
