And who created the Gods? Well they OBVIOUSLY came from Chaos! Just a big ol cloud of Chaos.
#152 to #97 - bronybox (09/22/2012) [-]
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.

no, they came from Chronos. king of the titans.
User avatar #104 to #101 - sorrowofdaedalus (09/22/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #155 to #104 - bronybox (09/22/2012) [-]
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.

you're both right...

You seem like you're trying too hard to prove the Big Bang from a mythological view...

How does that work?

=\ thats the big bang theory thats the father of cronus If your going to talk about the lineage of the titans and gods and such atleast get it right

I mentioned it once, that's hardly 'trying too hard' I just thought it was neat that the story aligned with the theory.
User avatar #121 to #118 - darthblam (09/22/2012) [-]
Ehhh... while that is interesting I doubt that's what the Greeks had in mind.
When I said "trying too hard" I'm just meaning how you are trying to shut this guy up almost for no reason.

No, I just don't enjoy trying to discuss the truths of greek myth with someone who believes they know otherwise.

#133 to #131 - leterma (09/22/2012) [-]
alright then you till me where the titans came from?
User avatar #138 to #133 - sorrowofdaedalus (09/22/2012) [-]
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.
#139 to #138 - leterma (09/22/2012) [-]
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.

For someone with the name "Sorrow of Daedalus", you're either extremely ignorant to Greek/Roman Mythology, or are just a really good troll.

I enjoyed doing some extra research to prove you wrong, but since your obviously an intelligent yet ignorant human being, I will not continue this further.

By the way, the proper way to "not argue" is to not respond. Just a tip.

User avatar #98 to #82 - whyfalsewhy (09/22/2012) [-]
He didn't make it up lol it is a basic telling of real Greek mythology, is your Google broken?

A few older civilizations were a lot more tolerant than our own.
User avatar #108 to #98 - sorrowofdaedalus (09/22/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #106 to #98 - sorrowofdaedalus (09/22/2012) [-]
Let me tell you why you're being a ******** .

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.


He changed it to do couples of all sexes because he knew liberal funnyjunk would grant him thumbs. Don't try to defend it.
User avatar #188 to #106 - whyfalsewhy (09/22/2012) [-]
You do realize that the Greeks didn't have just one creation myth, many of the themes stayed the same but there were loads.

Also why are you so mad, are you a believer in the Christian/Jewish creation myth?
I mean you haven't killed over this so i'm guessing you don't believe in Allah.
#81 - darklit (09/22/2012) [-]
So thats why gays are flaming
#80 - Spavaloo (09/22/2012) [-]
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
User avatar #94 to #80 - regaleus (09/22/2012) [-]
plus women were created as a punishment for man using the fire

(or something like that, i know women were a punishment atleast)
User avatar #109 to #94 - sorrowofdaedalus (09/22/2012) [-]
You might be thinking of Pandora specifically, who was made to punish mankind, but not ALL women.
User avatar #162 to #109 - regaleus (09/22/2012) [-]
pandora was just given a box and told to never open it, low and behold the dumb bitch opened and out spewed war disease and all the badness in the world

she closed it before it was all let out though, but too late. only thing inside the box now is hope.

still womens fault for everything apparently
User avatar #167 to #162 - sorrowofdaedalus (09/22/2012) [-]
Err, actually hope left too. See, hope was the only GOOD thing that was let out of the box. Anyways, I don't see how that story relates to your odd belief that women are at fault for everything.
User avatar #169 to #167 - regaleus (09/22/2012) [-]
basically greeks blamed all thats bad and lustful on women. bc women were created to punish man for something
User avatar #83 to #80 - darklit (09/22/2012) [-]
why do people always forget prometheus's brother
User avatar #90 to #83 - Sanguinarian (09/22/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #85 to #83 - Spavaloo (09/22/2012) [-]
The Afterthinker, Epimetheus?

Poor guy gets so ignored that the spell-check for Chrome doesn't think his name is a word. I know about him.
User avatar #86 to #85 - darklit (09/22/2012) [-]
Well just for people who don't know, He help Prometheus and loved humans like his brother too but his punishment was he married Pandora and opened her box :l
User avatar #88 to #86 - Spavaloo (09/22/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #91 to #88 - Sanguinarian (09/22/2012) [-]
I only just saw your comment after it reloaded the page to add mine. I've heard both stories. Epimethius was either sent to Tartarus or was married to Pandora. But either way, 1. She was the one who opened it and 2. it was actually a pithos

User avatar #64 to #62 - whatley (09/21/2012) [-]
Nope, the creation of man came after the Titanomachy, where Prometheus (He didn't fight and therefore was not imprisoned in Tatarus with the rest of the Titans) shaped men out of clay and Athena gave them the breath of life.
User avatar #65 to #64 - theguywithnopants (09/21/2012) [-]
Maybe Roman theory of creation?
User avatar #66 to #65 - whatley (09/21/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #87 to #66 - negitivzero (09/22/2012) [-]
While Hades was the name of the underworld it was also the name of the Greek god. It was Apollo's name didn't change, and no, he is not the same as Helios.
