I think Satan and God fought and annihilated each other 2,000 years ago, or Satan won and Christians have been left waiting for a new miracle because they haven’t got the news that heaven was overthrown yet. There is actually more circumstantial evidence that a victorious Devil is meddling with the world and tainting it, than that a heavenly being is actively purifying things.
Circumstantial evidence doesn’t prove that a devil or a God existed. Technically if God was once alive and there was some kind of balance or positive force in the world, then why is society more prosperous and less violent than it’s ever been in human history?
More people have more rights than ever before. We have found ways to make nature work for us instead of the other away around which allowed us to feed more people. The only major thing I can think of is climate change but there’s already a much better explanation for that which doesn’t require a supernatural entity.
Given that the world is all around a better place than it was 2,000 years ago thank you based technology your spiritual theory doesn’t hold any water.
The theory would be more convincinf if this were a post apocolyptic Earth. If the Earth is hit by a massive asteroid and the ecosystem went to pot, and we had to live on the asteroid belt of our former planet, it will be proof. Proof the good deeds and safeguards God had set in motion before leaving to fight the devil had run their course, and it is time to worship our new evil overlord.
I am waiting for a nuclear war so it will become acceptable to hail Satan.
What if god never existed?

The decline in religiosity could be because God died and Satan is just beginning to assert himself. For God 1,000 years passes in the blink of an eye, and it must be the same for Satan. Satan took a break to celebrate killing God, but now he is going to come give us power, and free us from having to follow God’s commandments. This could be why technology has began to advance from the idyllic stasis that God kept us in from the Garden of Eden up through Exodus.
Have you given your script to Gainax yet? Might be cool.
>The decline in religiosity could be because God died and Satan is just beginning to assert himself.
Except there’s been literally no evidence for either God or Satan. Not even from when supposedly God was alive.

That also makes no sense. Ignoring that the whole “Time is different for God” is made up, you mean to tell me that Satan’s celebration for killing his greatest foe was….about two eyeblinks long?
>but now he is going to come give us power, and free us from having to follow God’s commandments.
He’s a bit too late for that. Religiocity has been in decline in many parts of the world
>This could be why technology has began to advance from the idyllic stasis that God kept us in from the Garden of Eden up through Exodus.
That’s also illogical. Even within jewish/chritian mythos, post flood there were still civilizations. The Egyptians were on the forefront of advancing technology during the time of exodus. And even then, there’s no good reason to assume that our current technological marvels are here because God’s dead so now there’s no one shielding us from them.
It’s far more likely that it took time to develop things like rockets, transistors, hadron colliders, and every single piece of modern technological convenience because those things require people to study the world and understand the laws of physics to do so.
It’s not like a video game where Satan kills the final boss and suddenly “science and technology” are unlocked, it’s simply that setting up modern science and technology is a lengthy and complicated process.
It’s post hoc ergo sum. After God died, man became technologically advanced therefor man became technologically advanced because God died.
I could say that Hitler’s death allowed people to invent the transistor. I could say that Galileo’s death allowed for the creation of Calculus. I could say that Darwin’s death allowed for the computer to be made. It’s all meaningless because there’s no evidence for correlation let alone causation let alone the existence of God and Satan in the first place.
Human nature. It’s not that hard. Everything good comes from us and everything bad comes from us.
Well, if that’ true, then Satan is a pretty cool guy, especially since he doesn’t make us worship him, and nothing changes.
The serpent in the Garden of Eden wanted us to eat from the tree of knowledge and become wise. Satan could have been helping us even before he defeated God, by giving us ideas that would lead us away from worshiping God’s mysteries. He wanted God to be forced to watch his creation turn against him, to deal a psychological blow to a megalomaniac God.
In addition, by tainting the world, more people would go to hell and join the armies that would serve in Satan’s campaign, or even fight God.
1. The serpent and Satan are different entities. The idea that they’re one in the same came well after the creation story was written.
2. There’s no evidence for the creation myth to begin with. That includes the snake and the garden and the apple.
Your post isn’t just speculation, it’s speculation of speculation based on a false interpretation of mythology
