Satan's greatest weakness (Satan has no strengths, only weaknesses that stifle and emaciate what others have created - like many literary critics, and all computer virus writers, Satan is a creative imbecile, incapable of doing anything good himself) is his ability to pervert and distort truth and reality. His hatred, his fear, of humans is based very much on knowing what their potential is (his pitch to Eve in Genesis 3:5, "ye shall be as gods," was a baited perversion of truth; see also Why Eve?). So, very much in keeping with his way of doing things, Satan has been very busy convincing millions of gullible humans (including men like Charles Darwin, as lampooned in the old illustration shown below) that they are somehow nothing more than genetic mutants of ancient ape-like creatures (with the same dead-end future) that were merely a product of a mindless, Godless "creation." It's Satan's ultimate insult to humans, and ultimate blasphemy to God - attempting to replace Almighty God with an ape. Satan must be laughing with glee at the foolish people who are still falling for it.
The Creation Of Adam and Eve
The Hebrew for man is pronounced aw-dawm, from which Adam is derived. It's also related to aw-dawm-ah, which means red earth, or red clay - indicating the natural earth elements that composed Adam's body, and the body of every human being since (see the Fact Finder question below).
"And God said, Let us [see "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." (Genesis 1:26-28 KJV)
"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 [see also Where Is Your Soul?]." (Genesis 2:7 KJV)
Humans were created by God, in the image of God. Humans came up from the ground, not down from the trees. If Adam were around today, perhaps his primary message to many of his deceived children would be, "Don't let Satan make a monkey out of me. Or out of you."
