We all should read about Greek mythology, is it not how the soap opera started?

Was it more fun than us with only one?
I prefer the gods I believe in nowadays:
The forest, the moon, planets, anything I can touch, feel and see.
Most of all makes me feel who I am.:revolving_hearts:

I liked to see Athena as the number one! She was born from Zeus’ skull which is awesome! :laughing: Also, being the goddess of wisdom and war is a nice combination. Fierce and learned, brain and brawn! :brain: :muscle:

Absolutely!! A monotheistic deity is supposed to be 100% perfect all the time. Meanwhile it’s pretty clear that polytheistic deities are far from perfect, each of them has their own traits and personalities, and to me that’s a lot more interesting and realistic.

True. And Hera does have that nasty reputation for smiting all of Zeus’s mistresses. Which I totally understand. She was the Goddess of Marriage and it doesn’t look good for her hubby to be running around.

I like Athena too! When you think of it, between her and Mercury, they are the Gods over the Internet. Communication, speed, and knowledge. Very cool.

Didn’t work for the Pharaoh that moved the capital somewhere else, to be abandoned later on.

It reminds me the 5 cultures living in Spain in harmony, until Isabel, a Portuguese upstarter, decided to to unify Castilla and Aragon.

If it wasnt for those cultures we would still shitting inside wardrobes.

Nowadays we are still struggling with 1 deity. New generations are growing lost, looking for idols to follow.
The whole world will never agree to live in harmony.
Being assertive in religion is never a good thing.
Whatever happened to live and let live.
Will ever live in harmony as humans accepting that there are other creature in GAIA or GAEA?

I have to admit that for commoners in Ancient Greece had to be a nightmare to please them all at any given time, but, although I personally think is good fun to read about their antics, have to admit they were a bunch of spoiled brats!
Zeus was a bit of a bully and Athena was a pain in the a…, brain to him!
Girls just one have fun.
Matriarchal ruling society, all over again?
Will work this time, finally?
Mars Vs Venus,
Ying & Yang
Ping and Pong
