Lewis on the Satanic Fall and Corruption of Nature (again)

In my previous series of posts arguing that the Satanic fall may be the explanation for the fallenness of nature, I quoted C.S. Lewis’ The Problem of Pain, chapter 9, “On Animal Pain.” While listening to his Miracles the other day I discovered that he put forward the same view in chapter 14 of this book, “The Grand Miracle.” He writes: “according to the Christians (Nature’s depravity) is all due to sin: the sin both of men and of powerful, non-human beings, super-natural but created…. Beings in a different, and higher ‘Nature’ which is partially interlocked with ours have, like men, fallen and have tampered with things inside our frontier.”
