Genesis 1:4: And God saw the light, that [it was] good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
God never calls darkness good. By implication, darkness is bad
Pre-electricity, darkness was much scarier, so it’s easy to see why it gets a bad rap
The theme of creation by separation continues through the remainder of this chapter: sky from sea, land from water, day from night. God is establishing order from “formless” chaos.
The key, key words here are light [from the] darkness, refers to the reality that intelligence had been hidden from the earth [the darkness].
However, via “illumination” God separates light from darkness to enlighten those on earth.
