    Why would one hate a fly for flying around the room? Who would hate a mosquito for eating? Who would hate a snake for defending it's self? Who would hate themselve's for dying?

      Ask Barack Obama.  He's the one who swatted that poor fly for all the world to see.  lol

        Those pesky flies can sure get annoying. You can choose to capture in a cup and send outside, zap it or swat it depending upon your inclination.

        As for the snake, stay out of the way.

            There is no heaven but this and you percieve heaven everyday. Most just refuse to see it and are attached to the many aspects of suffering. It's easier to see our perceptions through emotion, than it is to see it for what it is. Life in all of it's forms are perceptions to one degree or another, but a fly is an ellephant to a flea, as the universe is to us. A source of life and a perception of it's self.

                    We feel that connection, as we sometimes look up. The problem is the distractions of men and the attachments the brain creates for us.

          I agree. 
          It's not that the snake chooses to be bad; unlike humans, it's just the way it is.  Humans have sense enough to know not to trust an animal that's inherently dangerous to mankind.

      All these creeping creatures and the snakes and the vultures and the likes; have the right to live in this universe; we have to learn to coexist with them. Actually these scary creatures have parallel to human beings attitudes and personality...some personality are venomous snakes wich means they are traitors and they bite...deadly bite.

    Well, Randy can be a bit venomous if you don't watch out!

    Who could hate a beautiful Pitt Bull Terrier for the muscles that he or she's got?  They only form a personality based upon that of the person that raises them.

      Humans don't generally raise venomous snakes or flies. Humans also don't generally plan on dying.

            What does that have to do with Pitt Bull Terriers?  You know, the dogs that fools try to use as extensions of their lack of masculinity in hopes of making up some of it?

            The vilified dogs that are discriminated against as if they were blacks in the 1800's America?

      I've handled 100s of snakes, as a kid I put 5 snake down my shirt to keep me cool off in the summer time. Only been bitten once from my first captured snake. My Mother was cleaning out my dressers draws and picked up a 6 snake in her hands thinking they were part of the snakes and latter’s game. Love snakes, Mother hated snakes so the snakes had to leave home. Went to a snake temple in Malaysia were 1000s of venomous snake hung out by candle light and smoking incents, you would of love this place Randy

        Yes, snakes are just another of the wonderful creatures we share our planet with, CP.  They get a bad rap most of the time but cause much less trouble than the human species.  smile

        Most of the lord shiva temples in indian forests have venomous snakes around statue or other parts of the temple. Atleast here in marleshwar, there are many venomous snakes who enjoy sleep without any attack from humans. Weird thing is they don't bite even if you touch them, that applies to snakes inside the temple, not outside. lol

            Biting is the only defense that exists in case of some birds and snakes. I just don't understand how come they differentiate between harmful and neutral humans roaming around them. Afterall we're talking about animal with less developed brain to process these complex thoughts.

              mischeviousmeposted 5 years agoin reply to this

              The problem is, that you are letting your brain tell you how it works. Just because an animal is wild does not mean it's dumb. This is to say, without a complex brain, they have no ego to commit evil.

                Here's why i find it strange. I have two parakeets at home and whenever i get close to the cage in bad mood, these guys run away from me. If i'm in good mood and get close to the cage, birds don't move at all. I am guessing is it because of magnetic field around me that these birds are sensing? Same goes for snakes too?

    Women, however, will do exactly what you tell them not to.  Take Eve for example.  The most powerful being in existence told her not to eat the fruit and instead of obeying him, she listened to a snake.  Just goes to show you God didn't know much about women, even after all of his boasting about his powers.  It thought it was just a joke!  Now who gets blamed for it?  mad

    Native Americans asked the first European settlers this question: "Why do you kill all snakes?" The reason they killed all snakes was because they'd grown up with iconographic images and bible text telling them serpents(snakes)were evil and of the Devil. Fear of snakes in humans is a learned trait, not an inherent one.

    1. mischeviousme profile image58
      mischeviousmeposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      It totally is learned. But by over riding the fear reflex, we see that they are just doing as they do, just as we do what we do.

    An Indian guy swore that after the monsoon venomous snakes search out people to bite. Any accuracy at all there?

    1. skyfire profile image72
      skyfireposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      I don't know how accurate is that. There aren't any forests left here in Pune, so snakes are rare. I guess that guy must be living near forest or river. I usually see snakes during my country side visits. I only heard stories of cobras chasing few farmers in that area. Never found truth in that. People do exaggerate especially when it comes to snakes.
