According to most forms of christianity "Satan" exists. Why did God create Satan? What is its purpose? How is Satan a part of God's "divine plan"? More importantly, Why is all of this neccesary? How does an eternal God have a plan? A plan requires the passage of time to make it meaningful. The whole idea of an "etenal God"that also "plans" is absurd. And the whole idea of and omnipotent God that created an enemy unto itself is also absurd.
What can be expected from insane premises except an insane conclusion? The way to undo an insane conclusion is to consider the sanity of the premises on which it rests.

Satan was created as a scapegoat so that Yahweh didn't have to take the rap for the evil in the world, despite being the sole creator of the entire universe and everything in it.

Bang, cigar and a Kewpie doll, right there.
Here we have an advocate for Islamic arranged marriages demonstrating that children can consent to sex.

Maybe the reason is that it gives us a lesson about evil so that we could better see what good and evil really means and then chose do we want more evil than good. Those who want more good than evil, have then opportunity to get out of this lesson world to the eternal life with God.

I'm more curious about where Satan even came from in the Bible. I do not recall ever seeing him in it.

Satan is just a symbolic name that means the same thing as these other symbolic names like the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, Lucifer, the Devil, Wicked One, Serpent, etc. Out of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which is this visible world we perceive as our reality ( but not real at all ) God also used a plan called the beast, which is His plan to teach His people how to build things until we had the modern technology in place today so that God can use them as analogies to teach me how He created us.

It would have been almost impossible to teach His people that we're all living in a dream. So His plan to get us to build illusions to teach us that we only exist as invisible vibrations was needed to show us that we're invisible characters in His dream.

God is also just a symbolic word which represents everything in the universe.

Brad thinks he is an invisible vibration in the mind of some supernatural entity who dreamed him up. He is not real. He is just an illusion so take no notice of him.

Everything is in the mind of our invisible Creator. Any fool who believes otherwise is just a fool.

No supernatural entity created another supernatural entity.
The word Satan simply means adversary.
Adversaries of life exist in life as do advocates of life.
Life includes all opposites.
No man can live without dying and no man can die without living.

Then, I am satisfied with being a fool, from your perception, much better than being a childish moron, from mine.
