**serotonin rolled a random image posted in comment #1222088 at FJ Pony Thread 14 ** This story is nice ...but false.
Humans were created by Titan Prometheus (that is how movie Prometheus got its name).

This was always one of my favourite Greek myths.

Wait **** . As other comments pointed out, this isn't legit. Though I still like it, please excuse my temporary stupidity.

The actual one involves Prometheus and clay and **** .
#173 - arrisarrad (09/22/2012) [-]
Actually, in Greek mythology humans are descended from an immortal race of golden beings. Know your **** .

Not heard this one, and I've just written an essay about the creation of humans in greek myth.
> Prometheus tries to trick Zeus by offering really good but **** looking meat or **** meat that looks awesome for sacrifice.
> Zeus picks **** one and punishes Prometheus and mankind (sons of titans/inbreeding) by removing fire.
> Prometheus steals fire back and Prometheus tied to a rock by Zeus and contiuously has his liver picked out. Zeus also creates the most evil thing imaginable to punish mankind.
> Zeus creates woman (Pandora) and offers her to Epimetheus.
> Epimetheus kinda stupid, and despite Prometheus saying no he marries Pandora.
> Pandora releases all the evils of the world.
> Thus we have mortal men and women.
> Later Pyhrra (Pandoras daughter) and Deucaleon (Prometheus' son) (feel free to correct spelling), survive a flood and throw stones over their shoulders creating men from the earth.

I spent far too long going through Hesiod to make this shorter, sorry

If OP's story is accurate then how do you have homosexuals on Earth? Not trying to sound anti-gay, but everyone on Earth would've gotten "zapped" meaning everyone on Earth was at the time stuck to someone of the opposite sex...

The only thing I could think of is that said homosexuals are or were still searching for their other half, but that's not the case.

My apologies for the Captain Killjoy moment, I'll go back to my cage. :[

That actually is the case. If you'll look above, you'll see the "sun" people are two men and the "moon" people are two females. These are the ones who became homosexuals.
#161 to #156 - ironstrike (09/22/2012) [-]
What I was getting at though, is that in order to be 100% accurate... wouldn't that mean male homosexuals would be on the sun, and women homosexuals would be on the moon, instead of Earth.
#171 to #161 - ARRRGGGG (09/22/2012) [-]
They were children of the sun/moon/earth, not necessarily living on them. Also, this is from Hedwig and the Angry Inch, don't take it as the actual story of the creation of humans of Greek mythology.
#177 to #171 - ironstrike (09/22/2012) [-]
Oh, I'm not lol.

I don't believe in any of it, but I've been fascinated by ancient greek mythology for the longest time.

no, Uranus was heaven and Gaia was the earth and they brought about the titans. then the titans brought along the olympians. Artemis represents the moon also. so no, this is wrong. but i guess its a pretty cool way to look at same sex partners.
#158 to #150 - ironstrike (09/22/2012) [-]
Isn't it that the Titans brought forth the gods (Zues, Posseidon, Hades, etc,etc) and the gods brought forth the Olympians, by well... having intercourse with other gods, and even humans - resulting in the birth of gods, and demi-gods.
User avatar #178 to #158 - APURPLEPYTHON (09/22/2012) [-]
One of my favorite stories is about Polythemus and Odyesseyus.
Or maybe how Theseus killed the minotaur with his bare hands in the labyrnith,
or when Nemesis punished Narrsicus by making him fall in love with himself.
I ******* love mythology.
User avatar #174 to #158 - APURPLEPYTHON (09/22/2012) [-]
The gods are the olympians. The natural 6 Zues, Posiden, Hades, Hera, Aphrodite, Demeter. Ill just give you a small lesson. Uranus and Gaia gave birth to the titans (the head titan was Chronus) Chronus basically exiled his father and he was named king of the gods. Chronus and Rhea gave birth to the olympians. When zues was born he was hidden from chronus so he wouldnt have been swallowed because he was ment to be the king of the gods. when he was of age and strength he came back and banished his father Chronus and freed his brothers and sisters. He was then named king of the gods. Then Zues and Hera gave birth to all kinds of other gods, Zues was a little bit of a player so he ****** all kinds of goddesses. but the other main gods are Athena, Hepheastus, Dionysus, Hermes, Persephone, Hercules and all of that generation. Zues and hera also gave birth to the gorgons (Medusa and her sisters), the cyclopses, and the hundred handed ones. Then came the minor gods from all of that like all the Nymphs, Charon, Theseus, Castro and Pollux. and i can go into detail about pretty much all of the gods.

Don't forget the story of how Chronos cut his father's junk off, threw it into the ocean and Aphrodite arose from the resulting sea foam. Just makes it want to shrink back into your body, doesn't it?
User avatar #145 - ivoryhammer (09/22/2012) [-]
Still a better story than the Bible.

And were the hell does Prometheus play into all this?
He WAS the one credited with out inception, not as much Zeus.

Yes, yes, the whole fire business. That wasn't his first involvement though.

A common myth of our creation follows the fact that Prometheus modeled humans out of clay and then Athena breathed life into them Search it up :)

User avatar #205 to #186 - bronybox (09/22/2012) [-]
Well, the thing is, in some stories BOTH HAPPENED.

Prometheus was given the task to create humans so he modeled them out of clay, ad they had 4 arms and 4 legs. Athena breathed life into them.

They however were to powerful, and could possibly get up to Olympus, so Zeus split them, and now we search for the other half (Which is not a myth I like, because Eros was said to have been born from Chaos, so how could love have come later?)

After this, Prometheus decided that the gods were being unjust, so he brought the humans fire so that they could bask in its glory. Zeus was unhappy with this, and you know the rest.

My personally favorite rendition is when you're born from chaos, how else to the titans get it on without love?

Plato was the inventor of this theory.

No, Plato invented the plate.

I'm not sure if this is really Greek Mythology, I know that it's from the movie Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
User avatar #103 - sorrowofdaedalus (09/22/2012) [-]
You really ****** that story up. The original humans were like that, it wasn't just three folks for the sun, moon, and earth.

In fact, the sun, moon, and earth were all considered god/titans.

I actually remeber this story, but a few details...

I don't know if there were 3 different beings, but it might be true, also i don't know if Zeus created them or not, but i do remember that he cut them in half... but he did so with a horse hair (for the lols i guess (Zeus be trippin)).

As far as i remember, this story is closly related to Da Vinci's picture of the perfect human being, The vitruvian Man (pic related).
