In earlier times had snake good and magical meaning.. but seems that bible was what changed snakes meaning.... but its good meaning is not totally gone, yet is it left in ambulance emblem.

Do you fear snake? What do snakes remind you, poison or death? :twisted: Snakes always play a dangerous and aggressive role in the story, in reality as well as most people think.
Your post reminds me a sence: a little girl carefully walked across a small snake with alternative black and white colour. Haha :lol: that's me . I wonder why I didn't run away immediately at that time. :roll:

In bible, a green snake coaxed Eva into eating the banned apple. That was the reason why God was angry with human. I think the characters of snake, which are dangerous and poisonous made people create the above legend. However, snake should fear people rather than vice versa as people kill all animals.

That is right! Snakes kill innocent people since days of old. They kill babies while they are peacefully playing. Why do you think that people are afraid of snakes?

Snakes found anywhere near my house must be killed. One must be vigilant in this or someone will be bitten. So far I have been lucky and only lost my dog and cat to snakes.

Isn't there also the age old story from the bible that the devil appears as a serpent (snake) on the tree of life to Adam and Eve. It is in this form that Satan tempted Eve.

This would add the perception of evil.

They're not exactly a cute and cuddly creature are they? :lol: :lol:
