Genesis 1:3-5

Genesis 1:3-5: Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.

Genesis 1:14-19: Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Genesis says that light was created on the first day, but Genesis also says that the source of light was created three days later.

How can there be light before the source of light even existed? It's like saying: a watch was created, before the creator of the watch existed.

The source of the light in Genesis 1:3-5 is never stated, so it's only a supposition that the writer claimed it had come from the sun which was created three days later.
