I understand the science behind the optical phenomenon of reflection and refraction of light through water droplets resulting in a rainbow. Nevertheless, rainbows are a magical experience.
Did you know…A primary rainbow arc shows red on the outer part and violet on the inner. On a double rainbow, the second arc has its colors reversed. I know the second rainbow is barely visible, but I think I was lucky to see it at all.
According to Genesis, after Noah saved the animals from the Great Flood, a rainbow appeared. As the flood had killed all other living beings, the rainbow came to symbolize God’s promise that he would never send another flood to destroy all of the earth and that never again would all living things be killed in the waters of a flood.
As much as I believe in the existence of rainbows, I also believe the Biblical story of the great flood to be true and accurate.
