It takes about 1 second for light to travel from the moon to the earth.
So, Go could foresee that the mankind would set an hour by dividing a day into 24 hours, a minute by dividing an hour into 60 minutes, and a second by dividing a minute into 60 seconds, when He created the earth long before the establishment of the Sumer Civilization and the Greek Civilization.
God set the distance between the earth and the moon so that light would travel between them in one second when the mankind emerged on the earth and developed science, so that the mankind would know that God created the earth, the moon, and the universe.
The moon we see now is a moon one second before.
Average distance to the moon: 385,000 km
Distance to the supermoon: 356,500 km
Speed of light: about 300,000 km
Based on subdivisions of the moon cycle
- Circa 1000, the Persian scholar al-Biruni, writing in Arabic, used the term second, and defined the division of time between new moons of certain specific weeks as a number of days, hours, minutes, seconds, thirds, and fourths after noon Sunday.
- In 1267, the medieval scientist Roger Bacon, writing in Latin, defined the division of time between full moons as a number of hours, minutes, seconds, thirds, and fourths (horae, minuta, secunda, tertia, and quarta) after noon on specified calendar dates.
