My theory - probably nuts, is that God did let Satan have the earth, that Jesus was the son of God, and that we are therefore living in Satan's kingdom, which is hell on earth.
Look around at all the evil and suffering in the world - Satan must be thrilled.
But if satan was simply allowed to rule then, he needn't offer Jesus the world cos God still technically ruled.

I am just responding to the time line point, why do you think I put this in capitals, just before I posted the timeline.
So he is relating this specifically to the END TIMES, NOT CREATION. This is very important to understanding time lines.
Because I knew some Young Earth creationist would use it against me, and now you have. I just knew that would happen, again a discussion for another thread.
And your still reading it backwards anyway, God perceives 1000 of our human years, as 1-24 hour day would be perceived for humans.
For example from his perspective Adam sinned about six days ago. That's why for humans it seems like God is taking forever to fix all these problems.
But God basically told us by the end of the week(His week) I am going to have this mess cleaned up. So from his perspective he is fixing it pretty quickly. Also a person like Abel the first human to die, hasn't been sleeping in death very long at all, from God's perspective, again gone only around 6 days.

OK, i didn't read all 11 pages because i couldn't ,so i thought to my self after reading some pages that most of you say there is no hell and most of you agree on that.
Now my question is this , is it fair that a God leave us all here on earth doing what we do, the good things and the bad things and after we all die and he receives us up there, we all get to have eternal life? you all want me to believe that all those who committed crimes ever since we set foot on this planet , DOES NOT COUNT ?
you all must be kidding me , THIS IS NOT FAIR , a true God who deserves worshiping should not treat the bad people the same way he treats the good ones in the after life .
just imagine a person and his partner are having an exam, one of them answers all the question and the other does not answer any question or at least he fails to answer the questions, and both of them get a full mark
so what would any of you do in this situation

Here is the thing, similar experiences seem to be had by people that are on the cusp of death, people that even believe as I do have had that experience.
When close to death or clinical death and revival the brain begins to play games, like life flashes, bright lights, dreams and nightmares. I am not saying that these things aren't being experienced, just that they aren't a reflection of true reality beyond actual death itself.
