My most preferred myth, Demeter, shows Zeus being a good god and causing a positive impact on those around him. Consequently, it is my firm opinion that Zeus serves a favorable role in Greek mythology. Many famous Greek myths, including Kronos and Zeus, show Zeus being a satisfactory god. The myth states, “They came of age and, when the time was right, they agreed to help fulfill the prophecy that would unseat Kronos from his throne” (Kronos and Zeus 1).

The Athens believed a certain way during their time period. Those who did not implement their system into their lives were considered a threat. So how exactly was Socrates a threat to the Athenian society? Well, my proof was given from the passage,
Have you ever heard about gods who control the world? According to the Greek Mythology, there are gods living in Olympus and looking human down in there. People expect, the gods would be good at everything and have a lot of humanity. However, in the myth of ancient Greek, the gods are just like humans.
