    What comes first, Day or Night?

    'In the beginning there was darkness and God said; "Let there be light!"
    If one tends to believe the bible than the answer would be that night came before day. Just as if God made Adam as a full grown man instead of a baby boy it's probably safe to assume that the chicken came before the egg.
    On the other hand if one does not buy into the "creation theory" then these things probably don't linger on their mind.

    Dashingscorpio handled the Biblical explanation, so I'll go at it from another perspective. If you're asking which comes first during any given twenty-four hour period, the answer would be night. In fact, as I see it, the sequence is night-day-night. Think about it in "military time" (a twenty-four hour clock), 00:00 is the beginning of the cycle and it is night (midnight). This time of year, the sun becomes visible at around 06:30 then is gone again by around 20:00 (8pm on a standard clock).

      Nice, but the clock is artificial. In the Jewish scheme, the day starts at sunset (the beginning of night), so the sequence is night-day with no overlap. But night came first, because light from fusion had to wait for gravity

      Hi lone77star. I agree. I gave my answer for the people who may not accept what they would classify as a "religious" answer.

      The clock is not artificial. The world clock keeps time with the atom
      Atomic clocks keep time better than any other clock. They even keep time better than the rotation of the Earth and the movement of the stars.

    In America it is day, but in Israel it is night. According to the Bible night came first
    Genesis 1:5
    And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
    The Jewish have kept it according to the scriptures
