You are making the classic error of confusing the agent with the mechanism :naughty:.

There's a pretty stark difference between them: we've got evidence out the nose for the mechanism, but not a shred for your alleged agent. I'm pretty sure Cali is aware of that, are you?

The reflection/refraction of light through water molecules may be the material cause of how rainbows appear, but the divine agent as efficient cause is the one who sets up the conditions and physical parameters that allow the phenomenon to exist.

There is nothing efficient about multiplying unnecessary entities.

You might want to ask, "Who made light and who made hydrogen and oxygen atoms"? Ultimately, everything natural has been made by a supernatural creator.

I wouldn't want to ask that, because the question makes the unfounded assumption that there is a who. I'd rather just wait for you to present evidence for your claim, watch you fail, then point and laugh.
