So how do you tell the difference between a beautiful satanic apparition and a real McCoy angel? If satan can look like god when he chooses to, how do you tell the two apart? How do you know that you aren't, in fact, serving satan?

Allegory for Jesus
Love this. Because you have enemies that can appear to be just as good as those that actually are good, you have effectively no basis to tell the good from the bad. It baffles me that the fundies don't realize what a problem this generalized idea brings about, meaning that any divine revelation is just as likely to be demonic influence or vice versa. The actual beliefs and opinions that one should have about any and all supernatural claims, even within a Christian framework, should be one of utter confusion. An admitted inability to know what agents are involved. But that wouldn't be as fun as arbitrarily guessing which fictional characters caused what, now would it?

Because Satan is an fictional being?
Because there are no angels therefore no fallen ones?
Because ALL religions are nonsense, fairy tales and, yes, far-fetched bullshit?
Oh, you didn't know that

Put down that twig, Suzy. Don't you know that the enemy can show himself in any form?
You know, Satan regularly shows himself as a carbon atom in order to discredit YEC. He's in all the stalactites too. And your body has its very own Satan-made vestigial appendix. The light traveling from distant stars is also Satan in disguise.
