Nothing created by God can be destroyed, it can be separated, but never destroyed. God is infinately smarter than you or I, so we can only make feeble assumptions so my opinion is for contrast. Examples: you cannot have love without hate, you cannot have good without evil et cetra. And God wanted us to CHOOSE Him, that wouldn't be possible without the devil.

I am new to this site so if there is already a thread like this oh well
That isn't an answer dude, that's called "circular reasoning". He is asking why God created satan. That happened a long time before man crafted various religions.

Almighty doesn't mean there is nothing he can't do. Examples: A. Creating a rock to large for Him to lift, or B: creating a stick with only 1 end on it.

It is god that is evil. Evilness is merely our perception of certain type of action that doesn't benefit us. God wouldn't be almighty, if it couldn't be evil, simple as that. There existed a thread for this conversation, you are welcome to read it here.
