I submit to you a theory. It is a theory worth considering. It is of creation, genetic manipulation and a battle. A battle between the two forces
that form our existence and our reality. To understand the theory we must travel to the very beginning of existence and time.
Job 38:4-7 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? Declare, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof,
if thou knowest? Or who hath stretched the line upon it? Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? Or who laid the corner stone thereof;
when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
The Angels were created before the heavens and the earth, as evidenced by the above passages. The Angels all sang together and shouted for joy as God
created our present reality. This we all now know. Satan, lifted up with pride, wanted to be like God and convinced a third of the Angels to think
along these lines and join him.
Revelation 12:7-9 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and
prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan,
which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Notice that the Devil is referred to as the dragon here. At this point we must look at the Biblical creation of man. There are two. Yes two. In
the first God created man and women and blessed them. He gave them dominion over the beasts of the field and over the fish of the sea and the fowl of
the air. In the second, God created a man out of the dust of the earth and gave him a soul. This man was placed in a garden and a woman was created
from him. Let’s take a quick look at the first account of the creation of man.
Genesis 1:26-28 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over
the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in
his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and
multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living
thing that moveth upon the earth.
The above was from the seven day creation that God laid out. The above took place on the sixth day. God rested on the seventh day and beheld all
that was done and it was very good. Next God creates a man once again, but gives him a soul and places him in a garden.
Genesis 2:7-8 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a
living soul. And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
Now, in the first creation of man, there was no mention of a soul. In the second, man became a living soul. A woman was created from this man and
they had a relationship with God in the garden. Had Satan and his followers been on the earth during this time? I do believe so. Satan began
influencing man as soon as he was cast to earth. Influencing man to do what?
To create a way to defeat God. Satan couldn’t manipulate the
material world in which he now resided so he needed man. He needed man to learn. He needed man to believe that anything was possible. So began
Satan’s program of deceit. Man, without a soul could be influenced to do anything he wanted and he increased the soulless humans understanding to
But what of that garden that was situated East of Eden? There were two humans there and they enjoyed a perfect relationship with God. Satan
couldn’t influence them to see his way of thinking, they had souls, and this infuriated him. He had to destroy God’s little garden and make those
two humans see that he was the prince of the power of the air. He had to be able to speak to them but he couldn’t.
The garden was too far for the soulless humans to find and God wouldn’t allow them to gain entrance anyway. He needed a new creation to get in
there. A creature that he could possess and use to bring his message in this material world. A creature that could fly into the garden and speak
with them. The soulless humans were given dominion over all the creatures on the earth. What if he could influence them to create a beast of their
own? A beast that would be outside of what God created and thus be subject to him. A beast that he actually created.
So began his genetic manipulation of the animals on the earth. There were many mistakes made, and those mistakes were left to wonder on their own.
There was much trial and error, and he soon realized that man and beast had to be fused. A perfect abomination that he could possess. A serpent. It
could fly, and it was intelligent. He would use this creature of his to tell them two humans that they didn’t have to listen to God. He would open
their eyes to his plan now.
Satan was ascending high above the ground as he pushed the creature’s wings through the still warm air. He couldn’t wait to show God’s
special creation his side of things. It was a place free from his influence, until now. He would show God that even these two beings could be
enlightened to his power. God had given him reign over this putrid planet but that garden had been untouchable and it infuriated him. That would
change now. He would make sure of that.
He had been there before. He seen the two creatures that God had created for Himself. They couldn’t be influenced. They were equipped with
souls. The protection afforded them infuriated him. That would change now. He could speak from this creature. This creature was his creation, and
his creation would destroy God’s little garden. He laughed out loud as smoke streamed from the creature's nostrils and he veered toward Eden. It
was a long time coming this little creation of his. He recalled how his subjects followed his every command. They were so stupid these soulless
humans, but they were his.
Now look at this passage of scripture. It is when Satan appeared in the garden.
Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.
More subtil than any beast of the field which God had made. Then who made it? I submit to you my final theory. Man, under Satan’s influence,
created the serpent. By manipulating the genetics of the creatures of the field, they inadvertently also created the dinosaurs. We all know the
myths of fire breathing dragons who were able to talk. I believe this is where those myths came from.
The implications are huge. The questions raised by this theory are many. Why would God allow this? Was it part of His plan? Did He know this would
happen? Yes. He knew quite well and has things under control. What good could become of it if God allowed this? Is this a viable theory, oh wise
people of ATS?
