Might be it's hard for white colour but other colours on black are easily readable. On white, we have a lot of trouble to read bright colour while on black we can easily read the bright colour without any trouble. IDE is made of multiple colours with each element is different, so dark is very suitable is such a situation.

Depends on color palette. I can't agree that colored code is any less readable on white if the right shades that is dark enough is chosen.

You can also chose shades that are hard to read on black.

Not that this is in any way scientific but:
#ffe0ff on #fff - I can still read
#002000 on #000 - can't read at all, can't tell which color it is

Yep Bro, Everything at last comes to personal preferences and yes there are colours which you can't read clearly on dark but same goes for white theme IDE too.
