That is not remotely Greek in any way shape or form. That's hippie bullshit, probably from Tumblr. Greeks had several different creation myths, but in no version was Zues the creator of the earth sun or moon.

No, it comes up in the Symposium, a Socratic dialogue.

i didn't say zeus created the sun, earth, and moon. this is supposed to be the HUMAN creation myth, like the christian adam and eve story. i said the 3 forms of human REPRESENTED the sun, earth, and moon. and i know zeus didn't do the whole thing. i was simplifying it. i know in the actual greek creation myth, hephaestus cut the humans in half and apollo stitched them together.

I thought the Greek human creation story was that Humans were molded out of the earth through the hands of Prometheus, these humans were said to live among the gods, and freely mingled with them (Golden age). That being wrote down from the poet Hesiod who lived between 750 and 650 BC. But you know I could be wrong. Probably not.

Hesiod says that a golden race was created, and everything was fine and dandy, then the golden people got bitchy, so the gods made a silver race, which was pretty cool, then they got bitchy, and the gods made a bronze race, the homeric heroes, Hercules, etc. then finally they made the iron race, us, and we're all just awful. Everything was better back in the day.

Is what Hesiod says in his Theogeny and Works and Days. Thing is, Socratic dialogues and Hesiods work were not the type of oral tradition myths from which the ancient Greeks actually devised their religious practices. So I stand by my first statement.

I was gonna get all pissed off at you for making a bullshit myth, but since you know your shit, I'll give you a pass and a thumb.

All myths are technically bullshit, but you know what, I chuckled. There's your thumb.
