I think Canada guy had the best answer.....
I also think that it started in the bible, where Jesus calls Himself "The Light of the World"....He also said something about stumbling in the dark, as Canada guy alluded.
It is also found in the Old Testament...
3 Then 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 God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
13 Then I saw that wisdom excels folly as light excels darkness.
Light displaces darkness, so I guess it is greater.
5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
