    Finding a supernatural entity to blame for everything is mankinds's get out card.  It is rather like someone behaving in a manner that you dislike and you say, 'you have made me angry.'  A moments thought will allow us to realise that no one gets into our heads to twiddle little knobs, we have free will, we are responsible for our own thoughts, deeds and actions, not someone else, not satan, or any other entity you care to come up with.
    Natural disasters are just that.  Man made disasters, wars, terrorism, etc, are caused by individuals or groups, not practicing, right thought, right speech, right action.

    Satan (if such an entity exists) would be responsible for the sin of pride....which, as those of us who sat in Bible classes know, caused the downfall of all mankind.

    But I think it would be better to focus the blame on ourselves and the decisions we make before foisting any responsibility on an unseen entity, like a child caught redhanded.  There's a verse in the Bible that says something about putting away childish things...and I'd rank Satan right up there with childish fantasies.  The mark of a mature person is to accept responsibility for the things you do right and wrong instead of finding somebody else to blame for it.

    Be a stand up guy instead of a little kid!

      Christians are expected to confess sin, but that does not mean there is not a force working in the background named,Satan, to motivate or tempt them. If we can believe there is God why would we have problems believing there is an evil force as well?
