apparently it wasn't the Chaos Powers that scattered the Infant Primarches. why didn't just whisk then off to the void of space of directly into the warp?
It was a delibarate ploy of the Emperor (the only being with the power to do so) so they coudl act as vanguard organisms raising armies around the galaxies easily absorbed into the Great Crusade as it expanded and also so his sons could develop independently
That can't be proven. It can also be said (there isn't enough solid data for a proper argument) that the Chaos Gods couldn't put them straight into the Warp because they or the wards that were placed around them were too powerful. There's enough meat for either camp to be supported.
And if your theory was true, why on earth didn't the Emperor reach the worlds before he created the Primarchs? If he had the means of getting there, he had the means to conquer them, as he had an army of proto-marines (if not full marines) left over from his conquest of Earth.
True, the chaos gods are just as capable of reading probabilities in the future as the Emperor, in fact, I'd guess more so. They could have been trying to orchestrate the Horus heresy from the beginning..
Seriously though, it's just something GW made up. Understanding is not required, and nothing can be prooved about it in any case. It just happened.
if the Emperor simply concered the planits then what is there to stop them rebelling. if u can concor a planit with out seeming as thou u have people are more likly to seport u.
With Correct Spelling this translates to- If the Emperor simply conquered the planets then what is there to stop them rebelling. If you can conquered a planet with out seeming as though you have, people are more likely to support you.

Listen, the chaos gods were not able to destroy the infant primarchs. They thought to themselves "well, we can't destroy them so why don't we corrupt them" That's why they were wisked away through the warp and spewed out at random. The Emperor meant to distribute them personally but only after they were strong enough to resist chaos fully, then as you said they would act as a vanguard on his Great Crusade, subjugating planets. If they had remained on Terra until the Emperor placed them on planets then they would have probably known their mission and who the Emeperor was, all the more loyal then they can be.
I shall destroy all who stand in my way. The Emperor shall be reborn in me, the Primarchs shall be remade in me. I shall cast down the Dark Gods, the Star Gods shall be consumed just as they consumed their brothers. Those who fell shall be redeemed, those who remained pure shall be rewarded. The Imperium shall regain its power and the Dark Age of Technology will seem like nothing. For I am the Numen and I am coming
The thing i found strange is the locations of their scattering. There's a lot of empty space in the galaxy, why did Chaos not simply eject them into hard vaccum?
why destroy such strong creatures, the primarchs where the newly born emperors. If chaos could corrupt the primarchs then it would cause a much bigger shockwave the just simply destroy them.
DonÂ´t mess with the dicegod
Chaos wouldn't want to kill them. They saw the Primarchs as their greatest chance of defeating Humanity in one stroke - through the Horus Heresy. You could say that they planned which ones would be corrupted and which would be loyal right from the start.
