Re: Why is darkness associated with evil?
There are many beliefs based on myths, legends and religious beliefs. Like, the feeling is that light is a positive feeling that illuminates all positivity and lightens up your life. Light is also said to reflect the pureness in you.
Can you associate evil and devilish things with light? Nope, since their work is to do the exact contrary.
Since their work is to do the opposite, then their work is associated with darkness (the contrary of light).
In short, it is not darkness that is associated with evil, it is light that is associated as positive and good. Afterwards, it's just playing with words.
