the cause of the movement, but what about an object falling?

Falling objects head downwards, but what is "down", what is below us? The 
answer is simple: Hell! And who rules hell? Satan! So, obviously Satan is 
the cause of these movements, Satan is among us all the time. But if he 
causes these objects to fall, what reason is there that he should not be 
the cause of all other movements?
