And he held up the sky not the world. common misconception. The globe he held was supposed to represent the heavens.

Jesus Christ.

I couldn't remember his name, why would you people expect me to remember he was a titan?

Titans were the beings that ruled before the gods, they called it a golden age and it was led by Zues'(god) father, Chronos. Chronos' brother was Atlas.

he wasn't a person or a god, i believe he was a titan, just like Oranos, Chronus Gaia etc

Ouranos and Gaia were not Titans. They were the father and mother of the Titans

Not at all. That's why BioShock is such an amazing journey.

Atlas was tasked with holding up the celestial sky.

Atlas was neither a man or god. Atlas was a titan.

Titans are considered deities. The name "Titan" was just a way to classified the children of Ouranos and Gaia. They were later overthrown by a newer generation of gods, The Olympians.

Pretty ******* obvious, no idea why this got so many thumbs. Oh right, because FJ is full of retarded 12 year olds...

Titans and gods were sort of the same thing, but yeah, he's a titan
User avatar #260 to #7 - alexforce (03/19/2013) [-]
Titans are gods...they're just in the Titan class. The other gods were Olympians.

Just yesterday I happened to be thinking of the story about the world being held up and who it was being held up by. Thanks for the info :).
#255 to #7 - xxxsonic fanxxx (03/19/2013) [-]
And it's a common mistake to say he was forced to hold up the world. In truth he was forced to carry the sky.
#251 to #7 - fractalius (03/19/2013) [-]
WTF? I thought he held up the sky..?
User avatar #242 to #7 - hidemoto (03/19/2013) [-]
But he didn't really hold the world did he? he just held the pillars that kept the world and the heavens apart. right?

Your reply was so bold I read it in Morgan Freeman's voice.
Here's some Batman.
#153 to #7 - xxxsonic fanxxx (03/19/2013) [-]
and he holds up the sky
#126 to #7 - xxxsonic fanxxx (03/19/2013) [-]
And he held up th sky not the world
#108 to #7 - xxxsonic fanxxx (03/19/2013) [-]
I don't quite recall who it was that held the earth, but Atlas held the sky from the earth

The Titans are actually gods too as many of the later greco-roman pantheon were Chronos and Rhea's children (Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Hades, and Demeter). Though we call them "Gods" they are technically referred as an "Olympian". Though technically that also means that Hekatonkheires and Cyclopeans are gods too as they are all children of Gaia and Uranus so make of that what you will.

Titans were gods before Zeus enslaved them.
#75 to #64 - xxxsonic fanxxx (03/19/2013) [-]
