It comes from the King James Version of the Bible, in Matthew 5:13, which says: "Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men." Salt was more valuable than gold in the ancient world. When Jesus said to his disciples, 'Ye are the salt of the earth.Ye are the light of the world.' he was saying they were more valuable than gold, and by extension, so was anyone who would suffer persecution for their loyalty to him. The phrase has been used ever since to praise the very best kind of people. It has come to be typically used to pay a compliment to the finest common folk, humble, unsung heroes, decent, hardworking, dependable and unpretentious, the type that quietly give of themselves for the benefit of others and their community.

God created the earth.
When the sun began to form, clouds of gas formed in rings around the sun. They eventually coalesced into gaseous balls orbitting the sun. These proto-planets consisted mainly… of hydrogen and helium, and thus could not have formed into the rocky planets. However, they did have gravitational fields and they were able to sweep other matter up from interstellar space. The fusion process in stars, such as our sun, will eventually produce abundant light elements, but very little of the heavy elements. However, from time to time a supernova star explodes at such high temperatures as to produce the heavy elements of our planetary system. Each supernova scatters its matter into interstellar space, to be attracted towards other stars and solar systems such as our own. Over the eons, some of this was accumulated by the planets, including our own, Earth. These balls cooled, to become the planets we know today. But they still had massive atmospheres consisting mainly of hydrogen and helium. The larger planets, such as Jupiter, with their greater gravity, were able to retain those lighter gases and are today the "gas giants". Intermediate planets, such as Earth and Venus, gradually lost most of the gaseous hydrogen and helium, but retained the heavier gases, such as oxygen and nitrogen. Smaller planets, with their weaker gravitational fields, gradually lost nearly all their atmospheres. Thus, the Earth formed, as one of the planets in our solar system, at first into a barren planet, hostile to life forms.
