why are some animals inherently seen as evil?

For example, ravens/crows, snakes, crocodiles, scorpions, goats etc.

If the criteria is that they kill then so do lions but lions are seen as majestic

    I see Crows and Ravens the exact opposite. I think they're sacred. Not in an edgelord black magik sort of way but in a native american spiritual way. Something to be revered and not fucked with.

    It depends on what culture you hail from/are looking at. For example, in most First Nation cultures crows, ravens and other corvids where seen as sacred, and snakes where holy to many Mesoamerican peoples (like the Aztec) as well as the Aborigines.

    Raven/Crow are very fucking close to Corvus corax genus as they look same but this one grows about 60cm (2 feet) long and eats anything alive and dead, often live in big groups

    Snakes most of them are venomous AND almost all can swim fast

    Crocodiles are apex predators and survived K2 extinction so they are pretty much indestructible for 1 on 1 fight without a gun

    Scorpions are venomous and they can live in fucking sand. Again good survivability in harsh environment

    Goats were used to predict future and were seen as dark magic kind of animal. Don't forget about devil's depiction in bible

      The devil is depicted as alternatively an angel, a "regular" dude, or a dragon in the Bible.

        dragon is just Greek for snake/giant sea snake/fish
        if we consider there was a Leviathan (giant seamonster, or dragon-like fish) in the Psalms (which god created)
        could be possible the 'dragon' is actually the Leviathan

    Raven lore is interesting. They're associated with Odin to the Norse, with protection for the Celts and subsequently the British. The garden gnomes like them and consider them pretty sacred. Hindus consider them ancestors. I think it speaks to the common origin between all these cultures and their reverence for the birds. According to wikipedia
    >The first name "Bram" is derived from a convergence of two separate etymological sources, one being an abbreviation of "Abraham", but the other being the Gaelic word "bran", meaning "raven". The name Bran signifying a raven, was used in medieval Ireland.
    So it tells me that most likely garden gnomes and Celts have a common origin, which especially makes sense when you consider:
    >red hair
    >druid/pagan rituals like the phoenicians
    >the fir bolg, 4th inhabitants of ireland, carried bags as depicted in ancient artwork of mesopotamia
    >the fomorians, enemies of ireland's first settlers, were sea raiders, and phoenicians were masters of the sea
    Who else are sea raiders? Vikings! And there you have the connection with Odin and norse mythology, which I think is Phoenician mythology. There's probably more to be found, but the crow is what started this.

    If crows are considered evil by some people, I think it is due to their association with foreign invaders like the Phoenicians who have used them as symbols for the death they and scavenging they bring. Facts turned into stories, stories became myths, and myths became legends...

    Also, pic related. This is the raven/sun cross symbol of the Nasjonal Samling party of Norway. The golden color of the bird resembles a Phoenix far more than a raven, indicating the raven as a symbol is merely a proxy for the Phoenix, the way the double-headed eagle of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry and the Byzantine Empire.

    I noticed a lot of "evil" animals are like an unwholesome counterpart of a liked animal.

    Goat: dark sheep
    Moth: dark butterfly
    Wasp: dark bee

        I have never been stung by wasps. Only bees. And yet, wasps have been everpresent in my life while bees are more rarely encountered. I spend hours sitting a few feet away from wasp nests and walked by them dozens of times a day and nah, nothing.

        Either wasp hate is a reddit meme or they only attack evil people. I hate cats, rats, and stray dogs but I at least admit they're all nice to me and don't deserve to die horribly (but if it happens i'm not losing any sleep over it and any attempts to get "revenge" will result in the prosecution being used as a test subject for my napalm recipe)

          I thought those hyper aggressive wasps are actually stories from Americans and for some reason the American wasp is more aggressive than the European ones

            It's from retards fucking with their nests. Wasps will defend their nests way more aggressively than bees but they also have a higher threshold for what constitutes fucking with them due to beeing slightly smarter.

    A lot of these are contextual. Venomous snakes are a threat, in western cultures they're associated with deception and temptation because of the serpent in the garden of Eden, but they also have an association with medicine (the Caduceus) which I've heard different explanations for such as the association of poison with sorcerers/healers in ancient times or Hermes carrying a staff with snakes. Their shedding of skin makes them a symbol of rejuvenation and some cultures associate them with immortality or infinity, like the Ouroboros eating its tail. Goats are associated with Satan and witchcraft but I don't really know why, they're a useful animal that provides meat, milk and yarn and can be very friendly and funny.

      Jesus was the good shepherd and since goats are the opposite of sheep (obviously) that must mean they're evil since sheep are good.

          garden gnome religions hate all canines period

          The Bible says literally nothing gold about dogs. garden gnomes hate dogs. Muslims consider dogs evil. Only Japs (pagans) and Whites (pagans paying lip service and pretending god is thor) really like dogs and wolves at all. Using goats to represent satan is also a very white thing, probably related to how often we’d sacrifice them.

    In what culture are crows seen as evil? This is retarded. I grew up thinking crows as seen as the smart birds (along with parrots).

    Snakes, crocodiles etc. is because they used to kill our ancestors back in the savannah days.
