Zeus was not satisfied by punishing mankind. He desired to punish the one who had introduced fire to humans, Prometheus. He sent his servants, Force and Violence, to capture Prometheus and take him to the Caucasus Mountains where he was tied with unbreakable chains. In addition, Zeus sent an eagle to bite Prometheus's liver every day for eternity. Since Prometheus had the ability to see the future, Zeus gave him an opportunity to gain his freedom.
Greek and Aztec gods and goddesses played a major role in the religion of their respected ancient societies. The Greek and Aztec people created their gods in order to explain natural occurrences and phenomenons in the world around them. In Greek culture, the gods looked and acted like humans and felt similar emotions, making them easily relatable, while the Aztec gods were viewed completely differently and were not similar to humans at all. However, Greek gods, including Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades have had a much greater impact on today’s society than the Aztec gods, such as Huitzlopochtli, Tlaloc, and Quetzalcoatl. Greek Mythology had a great influence on modern day sports and the olympics, which were held in honor of the gods in ancient Greece.
Prometheus ended up loving humanity that when Zeus took away fire, he actually got it back for them. Sadly, Prometheus was punished by Zeus for this act. He was chained to a rock, where an eagle would come and eat his liver every time it grew back. He would not be freed unless a god was willing to die for him, or someone kills the eagle and unchains him. Prometheus saw that as hope and continued to wait until the day came of his release.”Eventually, Chiron the Centaur agreed to die from him and Heracles killed the eagle and unbound him” (“Mythology: Prometheus”).
Throughout The Odyssey, it is evident that the divine harness the ability to both help and hinder common civilians, most notably of these civilians are Odysseus and Telemachus. The divine intervention in Odysseus’ life displays that godly powers can impact the lives of humans in many different ways. For example, just after Calypso had sent Odysseus off to his journey home, vengeful Poseidon sees him approaching an island and unfortunately for Odysseus the powerful god decides to “give him a rough ride in, and will” (V, 300). Poseidon’s godly powers called for vigorous “Hurricane winds...on which Odysseus’ knees grew slack, his heart/ sickened” (V,305-308). Out of rage for the pain that
In 1700 bce Crete was hit by earthquakes which destroyed many structures. After the earthquakes hit the minoans rebuilt the structures. In 1500 bc more earthquakes hit this time taking not only the structures but also the minoans with it. There are many myths that involve Crete. Some of which include; the myth of Rhea hiding Zeus in a cave on Crete, the place here Hercules performed his seventh labor, and the one most people know; Theseus and the minotaur.
Juno has Aeneas’s ships set on fire to ruin his fleet and prevent him from founding Rome. This leads Aeneas to pray to Jupiter to save his fleet, who extinguishes the fire with rain. Venus’s intervention is a life-changing event for Aeneas and Dido. The actions of these immortal gods have a positive effect when Venus creates a new love, but Juno’s actions had a negative effect on Aeneas by destroying part of his fleet. The interferences of the gods in the Oedipus is very clear to see.
Everything started to be tightened after the night of 18 February 1965, when the state troopers of Alabama suppress a peaceful march in Marion. During the suppression, an Alabama state trooper intentionally, in my opinion, shot Jimmie Lee Jackson when he tried to protect his mother from the violence of the state troopers. At the funeral of Jimmie L. Jackson, Doctor King mentioned in his speech that, “He was murdered by the brutality of every sheriff who practices lawlessness in the name of law. He was murdered by the irresponsibility of every politician, from governors on down, who has fed his constituents the stale bread of hatred and the spoiled meat of racism. He was murdered by the timidity of a federal government that can spend millions of dollars a day to keep troops in South Vietnam and cannot protect the rights of its own citizens seeking the right to vote.
This faith prompts him into a rage of destruction, all of which would be made illicit. The people attacked by Kurt Vonnegut behave like machines. When Kilgore Trout is in the truck, talking with truck driver about the big word at the side of the truck, Vonnegut satires the word Pyramid. The driver pollutes the environment and his owner likes the sound of the truck. After some chapters Kilgore meets Galaxie truck driver near the fire extinguisher machine.
Possibly the most memorable quote is when Odysseus reveals his name to Polyphemus after having stabbed the cyclops in its eye. This shows Odysseus’s arrogance, and sets up the whole story for the rest of his conflicts. “When they had made fast the running gear all along the black ship, then they set up the mixing bowls, filling them brimful with wine, and poured to the gods immortal and everlasting but beyond all other gods they poured to Zeus’ gray-eyed daughter” (Book 2, 430-433). This was when Telemachus was leaving Ithaca to go to Pylos and see Nestor. They made an offering to Athena, ironically while she was in the ship disguised as Mentor.
The first time Odysseus shows that he had supernatural conflict is in the cattle of the sun god, Helios adventure, and it was caused by Odysseus’s crew, who killed Helios’s cows. In the Odyssey, it states that after Odysseus’s crew ate Helio’s cows. Helios, the god of the sun, was extremely angry, so he asked Zeus, the god of the sky, for revenge on Odysseus and his crew. Zeus had to accept it, otherwise Helios would have created trouble for Zeus in the Underworld. As the results, Zeus’s destroys Odysseus’s ship with his thunderbolt, only leaving Odysseus alive, which clearly demonstrates that Odysseus had supernatural conflict.
Many witnesses said they could hear two distinct explosions few second apart. If it was only attacking then it would only be 1 explosion not 2 explosions. Another reason why it was external mine because the report from the diver who swam down and invent the bottom plate of the ship. The 3 metal plates of the ship were bent inward however, if it was an internal explosion, then it the metal plates would be bent outward not inward. The 1911 report with Vreeland Broad had agreed that it was a explosion of the magazines were triggered by an external force BUT the damage to the USS Maine was more powerful that the Sampson Board which was the 1898 report.
The bus got a few miles down the road and then the Klan firebombed the bus. As the bus was burning mob members held the door shut to kill the riders, but they eventually let go of the door because of speculated reason and the riders got out only to be beaten by Klan members. It took warning shots to stop the chaotic beatings to prevent lynchings. The second bus arrived and were also attacked by the Klan, but in consideration of the first bus attack they were not hurt as badly. Twelve riders were hospitalized, but most were refused care and were removed from the hospital in fear of the mob outside.
Poseidon was not pleased with his arrogance so he struck Ajax w. his trident and killed him. -Then there was another storm that destroyed a lot of other ships on the Euboean coast. Agamemnon managed to get back to Mycenae, but there his wife Clytemnestra killed him, along with her lover Aegisthus. XENIA- Hospitality. This is seen many times throughout the Odyssey.
