And who created the Gods? Well they OBVIOUSLY came from Chaos! Just a big ol cloud of Chaos.

Well actually the children of chaos are Gaia (the Earth), Tartarus (An Underworld BELOW the Underworld), Erebus (The Darkness within Tartarus), Nyx (Night) , and Eros (The god of love. In some myths he is the son of Aphrodite)   
   
Gaia birthed Uranus (The Heavens/Father Sky. Referred to as "Father of the Titans"), and then Gaia and Uranus birthed Cronus. Cronus ousted Uranus' position as king of the Titans, and took the throne. He ate his children in fear that they would take him over like he did to his father. This is exactly what happened when his sixth child, Zeus, was conceived and Cronus was tricked into not eating him.   
   
So the Primordial Deities came from Chaos (Also a Primordial Deity, I guess), the Titans came from these Primordial Deities, and the Gods came from the Titans, then the humans came from Zeus (God), Prometheus (Titan), or both depending on the source. There are plenty of "duplicate stories" to go around.

Chronos came from Chaos. In the beginning there was only nothing, and Chronos, the titan of the universe, time and space, came in to existence.


In other words, the Big Bang.

No, he didn't. Brush up on your mythology before making statements like that. Cronus didn't exist until Gaia and Uranus birthed him.

Check my comment above, and next time when someone "opposes you", do some research before accusing them of being wrong.

You don't need to argue with me, you need to take my statement as fact, because I just so happen to be a Latin AP student who needs to know this to pass my AP exam. And if there's something that we've gone over every single year, it's the Creation of the deities in mythology.

Chaos produced Cronus, who was the god of the Universe and time. From him sprang Nyx, Erebus, and Gaia. Nyx and Erebus had a scrap of kids together, and proceeded to have scraps of kids with their kids, while Gaia gave birth through nonconventional means and proceeded to produce children of her own that she mated with.


That's the proper geneaology, in a nutshell.

In the begining there was only chaos. Then out of the void appeared Erebus, the unknowable place where death dwells, and Night. All else was empty, silent, endless, darkness. Then somehow Love was born bringing a start of order. From Love came Light and Day. Once there was Light and Day, Gaea, the earth appeared.

Then Erebus slept with Night, who gave birth to Ether, the heavenly light, and to Day the earthly light. Then Night alone produced Doom, Fate, Death, Sleep, Dreams, Nemesis, and others that come to man out of darkness.

Meanwhile Gaea alone gave birth to Uranus, the heavens. Uranus became Gaea's mate covering her on all sides. Together they produced the three Cyclopes, the three Hecatoncheires, and twelve Titans.

However, Uranus was a bad father and husband. He hated the Hecatoncheires. He imprisoned them by pushing them into the hidden places of the earth, Gaea's womb. This angered Gaea and she ploted against Uranus. She made a flint sickle and tried to get her children to attack Uranus. All were too afraid except, the youngest Titan, Cronus.

Gaea and Cronus set up an ambush of Uranus as he lay with Gaea at night. Cronus grabed his father and castrated him, with the stone sickle, throwing the severed genitales into the ocean. The fate of Uranus is not clear. He either died, withdrew from the earth, or exiled himself to Italy. As he departed he promised that Cronus and the Titans would be punished. From his spilt blood came the Giants, the Ash Tree Nymphs, and the Erinnyes. From the sea foam where his genitales fell came Aphrodite.

Cronus became the next ruler. He imprisoned the Cyclopes and the Hecatoncheires in Tartarus. He married his sister Rhea, under his rule the Titans had many offspring. He ruled for many ages.

Oh, and to add on to your theory of ancient civilizations being more 'tolerant'


The Greeks saw man as the superior gender, so a relationship between two men was considered a superior one. So much for tolerance, eh? Not to mention, because they needed babies, once you turned twenty-five, you were supposed to stop that gay **** and get married.


The only ones who didn't follow edict were usually the rich and famous.

The story is wrong because in greek myth it STATES that one half was male and the other was female.

Also, that earth sun moon representation **** didn't exist, at all.

You do realize that the Greeks didn't have just one creation myth, many of the themes stayed the same but there were loads.

I mean you haven't killed over this so i'm guessing you don't believe in Allah.

You sadden me with your stupid.

In Greek and Roman mythology, Prometheus created humans,
not Zeus. He made them out of clay from a riverbank.

Zeus and most of the other gods wanted humans to stay stupid,
but Prometheus decided to be a cool guy and trick the gods by
stealing fire from Olympus and bringing it to the humans. This
allowed humanity to progress technologically and mentally.

Prometheus was punished for this act by being chained to a rock
on a mountainside, where an eagle (emissary and symbol of Zeus)
pecked out his liver every day (it grew back during the night).

Though, your story is good in its own right. Found a new religion, if
you want, make tons of money and get tons of loyal followers.

Just don't ******* use Zeus

yes, Epimethius. The actual reason he gave the humans fire. Epimethius was charged with giving all animals special skills, turtle got a shell, birds got wings and so on. By the time they got to man, they had nothing left and seeing how Zeus had them living in caves with no shelter or anything, stole fire from Olympus and gave it to mankind. Zeus punished both brothers, Epimethius was sent to Tartorus (i think i spelled that wrong but you know what i mean) and Prometheus was to be chained to the rock.

He was also responsible for distributing positive traits to all the animals, but because of his lack of foresight, Epimetheus ran out of them when he got to humans. Prometheus made up for his brother's fault with the gift of fire.

Nope, Roman is basically exactly the same as Greek word for word, but with the names of most of the immortals changed.
Except for Pluto, all the names were changed except for Pluto. It's a common misconception that Hades was the name of the God of the underworld (Disney...) but Hades was actually the name of the entire realm itself, Tatarus being the deepest part. Pluto was kept the same for a reason no one really knows. He was also a pretty cool guy, not evil at all.
