Why Are Goats Synonymous With Satan? (www.msn.com)

Goats and Satan have gone hand and hoof for a long time, and the image of a goat in a satanic context has been seen in literature, art, and heavy metal concert T-shirts the world over. However, the question remains, how exactly did goats become synonymous with Satan in the first place?

What do you think?

Im assuming because Jesus Christ is described as Lamb, and since Satan is a counterfeit he is the goat.

There is something called Astrological age, around 2000 years cycle, currently we are entering into the age of Aquarius, and according to some scholars that synchronizes with the regime change within “the elitte”, thats why today we hear the phrase Climate Change…a lot. Prior to Aquarius was Pisces, before that was Aries during which “the god” in charge was indeed devilish, demanded human sacrifice across the planet and so on…

The notion of God’s with horns for headwear seems to have started with the Sumerians. In there art and stonework it was a sign rank. Normally the icon used were the horns of bulls. However there was one who as time went on used goat/rams horns as a personal icon. That would be Marduk (Sumerian) aka the (Egyptian) God Ra. If you look at the stonework in Egypt dedicated to Ra you will find no shortage of goat/ram icons. If you look at the Sumerian lore Marduk felt cheated by Enlil (chief god) for the right to be the Lord of the gods. This resulted in Marduk being banished to earth.
Do you get the drift here?

All horned beasts are related to satan so I guess it’s purely symbolic

Because Jesus is represented by a white lamb so Satan uses the opposite which is a black goat.

Go to google images for “black goat worshipper” and youll find juice wrld wearing a shirt that says that.

Do you realize that this article states the goat is used as a mishearing of Mohammed? Some one heard the templars call on mohammed and instead heard “baphomet,” and so christians created a false devil for their enemies to worship to prove their evil. Sounds pretty typical, yeah.

Because of the religious brainwashing.
