22 And the LORD God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” 23

It just dawned on me, why does God need Satan to exist, although Satan chose to fall himself, God already knew via his omniscience what was going to happen. Does anyone else see the irony here? I would like to know what others think.

Because the story is fake.
Instead of hearing convoluted rationalizations for why these things take place. simply understand that it's all a work of fiction just like the thousands of other god stories out there. Simple. Done.

like the post before me it's to create balance, a story almost, like in those movies where there is a clear and easy solution to the problem there wouldn't be a plotline without it. Also theyre just different sides of the same thing, which is energy, god and good being the positive creation side, satan and evil represent the consumption, destruction and negative side. Heaven and Hell are always changing back and forth that is at this moment the nature of how we see our universe, there will eventually come a time when we are no longer bound to these principles, and that is when we first learn to see as god does.
