Title: "Let there be light"!! (Genesis 1.3)
Author: Gomes, Cristina Maria dos Santos Nunes Pires Caramelo, 1963-

Abstract: “And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.” (Genesis 1.4). We could start this paper producing some outrageous statements; the sort of statements that in Middle Ages would call the attention and anger of Torquemada and would take us to open fire; and, as a matter of fact, some centuries latter Rudolf Carnap would probably do as much. The first would do so because of the statement itself; the latter because of its consequences. Indulge us for a while. The very first line of this paper, its title in fact and the weird formatting is not an accident or a misunderstanding of the rules of proper academic writing. They are part of the argument we are planning to deliver: in short, religion and science come together when it comes to light and basically light is, either way you look at it, the sacred essence of the universe. Today’s science considers the cosmological theory the best explanation for the universe.
