The iron race was the gods 5th and worst version made yet. Full of wickedness, each generation worsens until Zeus wipes it out. The best creatures of the Golden Age did grow wicked. Zeus,raging at Prometheus for giving humans fire and helping them to cheat the gods with their sacrifices, decided to punish humans. He created Pandora, the first girl who, brings pain upon humanity with her curiosity.
Ancient Aztecs also believed there were five races of humans which are the first sun, second sun, third sun, fourth sun, and fifth sun which we are currently a part of. The Hebrews and Christians had a majority of the population of earth destroyed by a flood. The Babylonians believed there was a great war between gods that did some damage to the earth. The Yorubas believed that a great flood had happened. The Maori god Tawhirimatea created hurricanes, tornadoes, cyclones, tsunamis, and huge storms to torment his siblings for separating their
The Dichotomy of the Human Beings in Genesis The creation of the world and humankind by God was far from a straightforward process in the Book of Genesis. The first chapter chronicles the six days of creation, starting with light on day one and ending with man on the sixth day. Through Chapter 2, there is plenty of ambiguity in the verses, but the world is still free from most explicit problems and conflict. Man had been given a wife as a suitable helpmate, and they seemed destined to innocently and ignorantly maintain the Garden of Eden. However, in Chapter 3, the man and woman were convinced by the serpent to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
For instance, “the creatures of the sea came to her and said that they would try to help her,” (Iroquois 9) is an example of animals trying to help the fallen woman. For the rest of this story, the animals were always there for the woman as she created her own world on the shell of the turtle. Likewise, “Bear and
There are various similarities between the two works of literature, for example in the Bible in chapter 1 verse 1 of Genesis it states that “in the beginning God created the Heavens and Earth”. And in The Iroquois Creation Story it states “ Among the ancients there were two worlds in existence. The Lower world was in great darkness;- the possession of the great monster; but the upper world was inhabited by mankind”(David Cusick). Now these two sections of writing are abundantly similar. Especially when the bible states that God created the Heavens and the Earth, The Iroquois Creation
Although in Genesis 3, it reveals that shalom was broken when Adam and Eve joined the rebellion of Satan by eating a fruit from the tree God specifically told not to. They wanted to know good and evil like God, and couldn 't hold their
following. Graves’ book The white Goddess appealed both because of its festivity of poetry and of the idea of the poet but also because of his investigations into the mythical sources of the creation of poetry. The White Goddess – the basis of all poetry and of all life, the sublime muse – stands in direct contrast to the male, fatherly God of Christianity and rationalism. She is not stable and fixed but fluid and in continuous movement, symbolised by the phases of the moon. The moon goddess is, simultaneously, goddess of three stages of female existence – she is the virgin huntress of the new moon, the pregnant mother of the full moon and the wild hag of the fading moon.
There are other stories like zeus laye with metis, goddess of crafty thoughts and wisdom, and then swallowed her whole because he feared she will give birth to a child more powerful than him because of a prophecy but she was already pregnant. Athena is one of the three virgin goddess along with artemis, goddess of the moon and hestia, goddess of hearth and home. She is known to be counterpart of ares, god of war. According to some sources, Athena was praised for her compassion and generosity and is known to be zeus favorite child. Athena invented the flute but she never played it.
He is a monster because not only his actions showed it, but his mind was consumed as well. Victor Frankenstein is the true monster in this novel, because he obtained this knowledge that only God should possess, he was not capable with his actions to fulfill this knowledge, and allowed his self-ambition and revenge to control him. Victor became a monster by allowing this knowledge of creation to consume his actions and mind and in the end, it destroyed him and everyone that he loved. I interpreted that Mary Shelley is trying to show us that allowing passion and desires to go uncontrolled in your life, will lead to destruction and turn you into a
The monster was treated horribly by the people in the story. He was abused, called out, and uncared for most people. The monster responds with that negativity of the people into chaos which drives the monster killing people because he was uncared. The monster only committed the actions due to people judge him by appearance and behavior.
