do you know that the closest we have ever got to working out the date that Christ was born on earth is the month of September.?
so if we believe what the bible says about SATAN and all his demons being created long before the earth, then obviously they would have knowledge of all human history including the real date of Christ's birth on earth, so did they use their power to influence the attacks on the first SEPTEMBER of the new century by using the exact day in SEPTEMBER when Christ was born, knowing how on every anniversary the day would be associated with one of horror rather than celebration. but would Satan or the Demons be that clever.

Sukkot (feast of tabernacles) is to me the most likely date or time of the year for the birth of Jesus. Which falls right in line with the time frame you mention. It seems logical that if his death was to be associated with the Passover, that his birth would correspond to the living in a tabernacle. Of course a logical argument could be made for the Passover being also the time of his birth.
But here is the rub:
"Let no man judge you concerning holy days. He who keeps a day should keep it to the Lord, he who does not keep a day should also keep it to the Lord" (paraphrased).
So it does not bother me what day any of us elects to celebrate Christ (birth, resurrection or crucifixion). We are free to keep or even not keep it if we do so to the Lord.

1) do you know that the closest we have ever got to working out the date that Christ was born on earth is the month of September.?
In fact: I'm quite certain that is not true.
Not that you haven't "worked out" such a date. You probably have.
There's just no SOUND justification for such a conclusion.
2) so if we believe what the bible says about SATAN and all his demons being created long before the earth,
The Bible does not "say" that.
3) then obviously they would have knowledge of all human history including the real date of Christ's birth on earth,
Here: let's imagine for a moment that you were born - say - twenty years ago.
Do YOU have knowledge of all human history for the last twenty years?
I'm fifty-seven. I can't even come close to claiming to be knowledgeable concerning all human history for the past fifty-seven years...or even the past seven years.
4) so did they use their power to influence the attacks on the first SEPTEMBER of the new century by using the exact day in SEPTEMBER when Christ was born, knowing how on every anniversary the day would be associated with one of horror rather than celebration. but would Satan or the Demons be that clever.
That seems extraordinarily unlikely.

Sort of. We know that the early Catholics picked december-solstice to make the transition easier for all the other cults that already celebrated the solstice. They plagiarised the "born by a virgin" part too.
Apparently, Ethiopians celebrate the birth of Christ on august 25th

The Bible was written in an inspired manner to obscure dates and times that might be included in idolatrous worship such as 'numerology.' Obvious 'academic contradictions' are the places where most of these kinds of precautions have been taken.
GOD doesn't want us encouraging the worship of dates, times or physical objects, even when directly related to actual sacred events. Your conjecture is an example of mankind's propensity for such things.
That said, the truth is also conveyed in plain sight by resolving the apparent contradictions. This is known as 'revealing the pearl' or 'stringing the pearls.' Jesus Himself uses the analogy of the sea pearl when describing divine truth. The 'pearl' is formed when the oyster deals with his own 'contradiction' between remaining open to the world to receive what he needs to survive and closing himself off to avoid injury, disease or 'vexation' from the sand and other debris, symbolizing our feeling of frustration at apparent contradictions, all the while forming the 'pearl of great price.'
You should know that 'we' are quite a bit more knowledgeable than you assume about EXACTLY the moment Christ arrived, but 'we' just aren't permitted to share it in public ways for OBVIOUS reasons.

911 is the American emergency number. This is a closer reason they chose September.

Yeah sure, all the genocides and atrocities and cruelties humans have perpetrated against each other, this planet and everything living on it throughout history....but somehow you are tying a supernatural conspiracy, good vs evil type ****, to 9/11 because September is possibly the birth date (and no one really knows) of Jesus??

I know! We should work on exactly where Santa is instead!

Good sci-fi story, but demons are not more powerful than God, and could not change his plan.

Well, that's the problem, when dealing with Imaginary Creatures.
Researchers have had the same problem with Voldemort's DOB.
The BuyBull is HILARIOUS when it comes to mythical jesus' birth.
Matthew states he was born BEFORE 4BC.
Luke argues that christ was born AFTER 6AD.
