Posted by Roses on October 7, 2010

Do you wonder some times why we suffer so badly and why there is so much heart ache, blood shed, greed, death, old age and the list goes on and on.

Could there be some type of truth, that is in the legend of Pandora herself and the box or urn that was given to her. The name Pandora means “the one who bares all”. Pithos pandora's box

Today opening Pandora’s box means to create or unleash evil that can not be undone. The Pandora’s box was really a large Urn or jar (pithos) meaning all gifted.

In the Ancient Greek Mythology the First woman to ever walk on Earth was named Pandora and was used as a secret weapon against mankind.

Epimethius and Prometheus were Titans of Olympus was ordered by Lord Zeus to take a special gift to every animal on earth.

From the goddess Themis and The Great Lord Zeus was born three very lovely daughters, or at least they were at the time. As time passed they were known as the three ugly hags of destiny who dressed in white robes and sat by the throne of Zeus.

The Greek Goddess of love: Aphrodite

Posted by Roses on March 25, 2010

When most people hear the name Aphrodite they think of love and beauty. Usually negative thoughts wouldn’t appear since typically love and beauty are positive qualities and possessions, but that is exactly the way that the Greek goddess of love is remembered. Being in the center of many controversies, it is a surprise as to why majority of people do not know the truth behind this scandalous goddess.

There are two different stories as to how the goddess Aphrodite was born. It is often said that she was born from the sea-foam in the ocean. Yet a less common version comes from Homer that states that Aphrodite was the daughter of Zues and Dione. The fact she was born an adult makes the first of the two situations more probable. Even though she had no childhood she often was childish and vain. Her vanity is even said to be the start of the infamous Trojan War.

Despite all her beauty that she was naturally given, she was given away for marriage to the least attractive …

Was the Bible Influenced by Greek Mythology?

Posted by Roses on January 17, 2010

In looking at the many world’s religions, one can find similarities at nearly every turn in the stories.

Most involve the world being created by a higher power, a separation of that higher power from mankind, a great flood that covered the land at one time,  a human representation of that higher power, an emphasis on war and some way of redemption.

While myths differ from religions in that religion is a more all-encompassing term…

many  mythological accounts of events, especially Greek mythology,  correlate with those in the Christian Bible.

Creation Stories – The Bible & Greek Mythology

There are differences in the creation stories…with some similar essentials, such as the world beginning in darkness.  In Greek mythology this darkness is called Chaos.  Chaos is the beginning of all things, and from this darkness came the earth (Gaea), Eros (which represented love)  and the underworld (Tartarus).  In the Christian Bible, God speaks and it is so.  Where in Greek mythology it is many gods who are responsible for bringing the world and the …

Pegasus The Flying Horse And Bellerophon

Posted by Roses on January 6, 2010

Pegasus

pegasusPegasus has always fascinated me. Pegasus is seen in lots of art work and used in many poems. He is one of the most famous myths in Greek Mythology. Read the history of Pegasus and enjoy it as much I have enjoyed writing this piece.

Pegasus is from Greek Mythology and belonged to Bellerophon. This beautiful wing horse was born from the blood that was spilled from the Queen of the Gorgons Medusa. She and Poseidon the God of all waters mated and she was already pregnant by him when Perseus cut here head clean off her shoulders.

Pegasus also had a brother that sprung from the blood of Medusa. He was called Chrysaor and was described as a winged Boar. Both creatures were born fully grown from the blood of Medusa.

Greek Mythology  has always been one of my biggest interests. When I was little I could not get enough of this kind of thing.

Now as most people  know the Olympians are made of 12 Gods who after the Titans ruled. All of these Gods were related in some way or another.

But has anyone ever noticed that the Greek Mythology  is a lot like the bible and has so many of the same things that happened  in the bible. Lets take a look at Zeus in this read.

First off any one who has the name today Jesus they pronounce it as Zeus.   Strange don’t you think?
Zeus was the main and almighty over all just like our God.
Now Zeus was the great God over the Skys and the ruler of all of the other Olympian Gods.

Cronus was the father of  Zeus but Zeus over threw his father with help from his brothers Poseidon and Hades.
He is the supreme ruler of all of the sky and the rain God. He has …
