We dont fear birds but we fear snakes, even if both tried to predate us for millions of years.

We dont fear birds but we fear snakes, even if both tried to predate us for millions of years. Most mammals dont care about small theropods. we lived in our burrows and hid away from them, and even if we engaged in direct combat we had a chance because a large squirrel could sorta grip a chicken and bit it in some way the thing cant kill you. But a snake? Those shits are weird. And if they got you is game over. They also search inside burrows... they are devils and theres no way to fight them... we grip.

    >We dont fear birds
    Are you joking? Let a small bird loose around a group of people and watch their reaction. The primal response to something flapping near your head is very much present in the modern hominid brain.

      I get what you mean but the effect is definitely not really there if it’s a small enough bird, I think any kind of rapidly moving sound around a persons head is going to make them uncomfortable

    Seraphim are angels in form of winged serpents. We fear them because we fear God.

    Phobias are culturally imparted. A study recently showed that infants only pay more attention to things moving in their field of view, they base their reaction to whatever it is on people around them. Presumably they would have a negative reaction if they were bitten or startled suddenly, as well.

      Animals with no vulture remain capable of recognizing dangers they have never directly faced, such as a natural aversion from far larger animals that could instantly kill them in an engagement. Which didnt happened in their lifetimes.

        99% of spiders are harmless. Snakes are typically cryptid and you have to go out of your way to find them, and even when you do they bite as a last resort. The idea there's an instinctive fear of certain animals based on body shape and movement is generational trauma tier pop science.

          Not nessasarily a gotcha, but why is some of the most common reports of states of delirium are people observing large dark spiders stalking them in trees or on walls? It is a very specific and common trope amongst many people undergoing the negative psychological state. From a historical point of view spider bites have always been seen as a point of concern with many recipes made by apothecaries or druids to cure spider bites in Europe which could be an indicator that we were at one point vulnerable to them.

            I once had a nightmare/sleep paralysis episode/???? when I was younger. I woke up in the middle of the night screaming, hallucinating spiders everywhere. Giant spiders on the walls and ceilings, fuzzy and unmoving on the bed. This is something I very vividly and distinctly remember by the way, and I wasn't dreaming since my parents came rushing in and saw me crying and scratching at myself. Makes sense for me considering I am/was terrified of spiders, but it was a very unpleasant experience.

            because modern people grow up being taught that all spiders are terrifying, its cultural

          You're insane. We're hardwired to recognize them and avoid them. Hell, spiderman is only as popular as he is because of the spider emblem catching readers' attention.

            You are scared of tiny, harmless creatures you could easily squash because your mommy saw one and screamed when you were a baby.

      Nope. Just because some people dont express phobias until theyve reached emotional development doesnt mean its all learned behavior. Its not something you just decide to start doing like a trend.
