"Satan hid the fossils there to trick people" is something I hear in the threads.
I used the search, and it doesn't seem like this has been directly addressed, on it's own.
I would like to start by asking people who believe this, to explain.
Because I find it hard to believe, that would be a lot of trouble to go through, and why would this be allowed?
I will try to approach this from a religion perspective. If you believe this, then it brings up other questions for me.
From a religious point of view, if Satan is allowed to do this, does it mean God has no power to stop him?
If Satan buried all the fossils, then are any/all scientific discoveries also tricks?
Is there any proof of this in the bible?
If you believe that Satan could have buried the fossils, is it not also possible that Satan made up a lie about burying the fossils to trick
christians into not believing in evolution?
If Satan buried fossils, has God buried stuff as well?
*As a note, I understand not all christians believe this.
**For the purpose of discussion, it is assumed that the God theory is valid, as to reach a further line of though on this subject.
***This is not a christian bashing thread, so please refrain yourself from belittling those who are religious, categorizing them all with a wide
brush, or reducing them to only to their religion.
****I am not a religious person trying to further religious beliefs, I am just curious about this subject.
