Is Genesis wrong about rainbows

13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth (Genesis 9)

Muslims claim that according to this verse, rainbows were created after the flood as a sign between God and His people.But since rainbows are created by the refraction of light, they must have existed before the time of Noah as well.Hence, there is a scientific error in the Bible.

In reality, the error lies in the person's understanding.The Biblical account nowhere suggests that this was the the 1st time that rainbows were shown in the sky.It only says that God showed a rainbow at that time as a sign to show God's promise that He would not destroy the world by floods again.

So to find an error in this passage is to draw out a meaning which the passage itself doesn't talk about.

God Bless you.
