What? Is this some sort of red herring? All of these threads ASSUME that symbolism all means the same thing to all people, how else could they possibly know what the creators of this art and symbols really means?
But the reality is that symbols do only mean different things to different people. You do realize you've proven my point.

I have often thrown this idea back and forth in my head. I had a religious / out of this world experience when I was younger. I used to be visited by some sort of being. He could read my thoughts and communicate to me through my mind. In my dreams he would come to me as a human. He relied on fear energy produced when I would go to sleep in the dark to materialize. I would see shadows moving accross my room and glowing eyes in dark places. He also had the skill of persuasion. One particular night he came to me in a dream which was again lucid. I was in control of my conversations and was totally conscious of what I was doing with in the dream as I had done so many times before with him. He showed me a hole from far and told me to follow him and come closer to the hole. I felt this was evil and did not want to do so but I trusted the being for a short while. I floated over the hole where he showed me the bottomless pit. In the pit I saw many souls resting upon many souls which were also lying upon many souls almost clawing to get out. As soon as I saw this I awoke and yelled, No! Your Evil! As I opened my eyes I saw the being in real life in his actual form. He stood just on the other side of my window, which my bed was against, he was staring at me and I screamed. He had giant black eyes and skin like a lizard or snake. Long fingers with long black fingernails which could cut you like razor blades. The eyes were the most peculiar as they were the size of baseballs and jet black. I could see nothing in the black eyes. They were also slightly to the sides of the beings head almost like a fish.
Could this be the great serpent who deceived Adam and Eve in the Garden?
