One has to wonder whether he was unable to discriminate, or just didn’t care if he indiscriminately slaughtered the innocent with the guilty—humans and other species. That and a number of other tales make the OT god inept, limited, monstrous, or some combination thereof.

The brightness inside the primary bow is not exactly due to a lensing effect, but occurs because the rainbow is a caustic – see here. In a similar way, the sky outside the secondary bow is bright, with a darker region between the 2 bows, but you cannot always see these effects.

Also, I forgot to give a link; this article describes the formation of the rainbow. I will correct the original text right away.
