People's beliefs concerning Satan range from the silly to the
abstract—from a little red guy with horns who sits on your shoulder
urging you to sin, to an expression used to describe the personification
of evil. The Bible, however, gives us a clear portrait of who Satan is
and how he affects our lives. Put simply, the Bible defines Satan as an
angelic being who fell from his position in heaven due to sin and is now
completely opposed to God, doing all in his power to thwart God's
purposes.

If there were, he would not only be an agent of God, but the medium of which evil is dispensed . . .

IF God Created Evil (Isaiah 45:7) then Satan would be his method of delivery . . .

Fortunately, neither is real.

The "devil" is a Christian invention, he is not mentioned anywhere in the Tanakh (OT). There are however other evil spirit beings in many other religions, but none has any evidence for their existence.

Yes. The Scriptures indicate that the creature known as Satan did not always have that name. Rather, this descriptive name was given to him because of his taking a course of opposition and resistance to God. The name he had before this is not given. God is the only Creator, and ‘his activity is perfect,’ with no injustice or unrighteousness. (Deuteronomy 32:4) Therefore, the one becoming Satan was, when created, a perfect, righteous creature of God.

Throughout the Scriptures the qualities and actions attributed to him could be attributed only to a person, not to an abstract principle of evil.

It depends on what you believe. There is no proof, however, if that is what you were looking for. Personally, I do not believe in the Devil, Satan or anything similar, however some religions, such as Christianity, teach that the devil is real. So it really depends on your religion/spirituality/belief system.
