Which came first? If you make a claim on which came first then can you explain your decision?

Darkness is an absence of high frequency wave particles hitting your rods. IE Light.

The absence of light is dark, so darkness was there before light,

In the beginning was the Word.

When the universe came into existence some 13 billion years go it was, for a short time, composed of pure energy. So light came first. It's safe to say that a tiny area of space that was 1000 trillion trillion degrees celcius and composed almost entirely of photons didn't have any shadows in it.
And for the people arguing for dark being first, there wasn't a big dark chasm before the universe was created, there was nothing at all.

I guess darkness came first whether you go by the traditional Christian ideology (you know, there was darkness and nothing and the Lord said "Let there be light"). Or whether you go by the scientific route which many accept as the big bang theory, in which case there was nothing before the big bang until it happened. And if there is nothing then then is no source of light, and thus all would have been dark. Darkness falls where there is no energy sufficient enough to produce it, and there's a lot. Sure there are a lot of stars, but there's even more empty spaces of cold, dark voids in between :O_o:

Neither of them came first, they always existed.

Dark is just an absence of light, not an actual substance like light is, so I'd say it depends on whether you believe there was ever a time without light.

Darkness because light requires energy to exist while darkness can be present without any energy at all.

Light and dark cannot exist outside of time and space, which burst into existence simultaneously in this universe. However, in the very first fraction of a picosecond, it is probably okay to believe that there was a saturation of light.

"no matter how fast the light travels, darkness is always there waiting for the light to come"

The question itself is absurd and nobody's attempt to answer it has any relevance.

Not really... It is a simple question, complex answer.

Darkness is simply an absence of light, and light needs a source - a star, a lightbulb, etc... - so it's rather obvious that darkness came first. Darkness is to light what silence is to noise.

Neither. Vacuum or nothingness came first.

Although, the bible says that there was darkness before all else.

Dark. Namely because I believe light was created.

Neither. Nothing existed to start off with. Although something must have existed for it to start, or is it because humans think there must be something to start? When in fact thats not the fact and that we cannot comprehend it. Because the brain works on logic. So, in the mind something has to be there before something is made.

I'm not quite sure how you can call first on what is essentially the result of a law of physics and the absence of its manifestation.
