Past humans believed in the “Ultimate of Ridiculous”
(So they just kept going with it.)
If they will believe in Zeus, they will believe anything!
A brief history of the take would be that Zeus had a father that swallowed all his siblings and they remained alive in his stomach until Zeus finally poisoned him, making him throw up all his siblings and join him in a War to conquer the World. Zeus was a God.
Zeus appears in the linear b writings so we know he was worshiped during the Myceanean period so at least 1500 BCE. The Olympics dedicated to Zeus were started in 776 BCE and continued until banned by the Roman Emperor Theodosius after 350CE. The worship of Zeus still existed in remote parts of Greece like Laconia until after 800 CE.
Zeus was the supreme god of gods and Greeks. He was called Jupiter by the Romans and he received that name because it was believed he had the same powers as the Roman god Jupiter! His symbols are the eagle, the oak tree, the royal scepter and the thunderbolt. Originally he was a god of the skies and high heavens and back in the day Greeks thought of him as the only god who concerned himself with the entire universe.
Greeks associated Zeus with justice and well being. He’s believed to have greatly punished the wicked and maldoers and rewarded all that did good.
He received the lightning bolt from the Cyclops who were the giants that helped Zeus in the war against his father. He uses the lightning bolt for defense along with a bright golden shield with an eagle engraved on it.
Zeus was the son of the great god Cronus and great goddess Rhea. Cronus feared his children would want to overpower him and take his place at Mt.Olympus, therefore he swallowed all of Zeus’s siblings, Zeus hadn’t yet been born. When Zeus was born, Rhea hid Zeus on some close by islands before Cronus could swallow him then she wrapped a stone in baby’s clothes and gave it to Cronus. Cronus swallowed it believing it was his son. When Zeus reached adulthood he disguised himself and returned and tricked Cronus into drinking a liquid that forced him to vomit up all of his children, who then all gathered together to fight in a war against their father Cronus and the rest of the Titans (the race that Cronus and Rhea belonged to). Cronus was overthrown in the war by Zeus, so Zeus then took his place on Mt. Olympus and became judge and chief ruler of the 12 major gods and goddesses called the Olympians who ruled Mt.Olympus. It was believed that he settled disputes fairly but when he became angry he would throw thunderbolts. On Mt. Olympus he was also in charge of changing the seasons and making the sun come and go, both of which were very important to the other gods, goddesses, and Greeks.
Zeus had two(2), brothers. They were the god Hades who ruled the underworld and the god Poseidon who ruled the seas. His sisters were goddesses Hestia, Demeter, and Hera.
ZEUS later married his sister Hera who then became the queen of goddesses considering the fact that her husband Zeus was king. In their relationship, they had two(2) children who are known as the gods Ares and Hephaestus. Even though being married to Hera Zeus also had many love affairs with other goddesses and mortal women. From these extra relationships on the side, his children include the gods Apollo, Dionysus, Hermes, the goddess Artemis, the heroes Heracles(Latin for Hercules) and Perseus. He also gave birth to goddess Athena who sprang full-grown from his forehead. According to myths Zeus and goddess Mnemosyne became parents of the Muses(the 9 goddesses of the arts and sciences) and it is believed that he and goddess Athena were parents of the fates. Zeus fell in love often, therefore resulting in so many children Zeus cannot even name them all. Because of his many relationships his wife queen, Hera became very insecure of Zeus and other women/goddesses. Zeus was “anthropomorphic” which comes from two(2) Greek words meaning the shape of a man. This meant that Zeus could transform into any animal or human being that he wished to be and he would then go down on earth and fool the mortal women who would then mate with him.
Zeus foretold the future through omens and oracles. As being the guardian of mortality, Zeus enforced moral among men, for Zeus himself, was very wise!
Since Zeus’s childhood was spent undercover hiding he was never able to experience the joy of being a child. When he was older he was constantly fighting wars and helping and protecting the others, along with doing many other great things though greatly did his job consist of leisurely activities. He is a very special and wise God who later died, but while he was alive he was greatly respected by most and played a major role in Greek mythology and the roles of the other gods and goddesses and the Greek people!
Then we go into Christianity. You know, as humans could not get away from Gods!
We have people believing Crop Failures is the justification for their own Sin. Perhaps the work of Witches. Yes, humans all believed that, along with the Flat Earth. At least until this “New Fangled Science Thing” became just too trustworthy, and revealing. It was Science after all that made way for the Printing Press, and of course, the first thing they ever printed (under severe outrage) in mass was the Bible. You could say that Mainstream Media began with the Printing Press, and their first promotions were that of Fairy Belief and pure Fraud, but for the Christians and the Religious who have not woken up yet, I will downplay that. Never mind that much of the laughable beliefs which came from Zeus are also included in that Bible.
However, once people began to have more education than your common ROCKS, the fairy tales slowly dwindled away. The next play for Mainstream Media was to make the Frauds more believable and suppress any functional arguments submitted. Even today, few people in North America know of the Bolshevik Revolution. It was kinda major.
That is the basis. The beginning. From there we have WWI, WWII, State of Israel, and all the hoodwinking which came after and still going on today. Start there. Begin at the beginning. Then follow the path on your own. As seriously, Grasshopper, you are not going to get anything at all from Mainstream Media or your Government or your Schools, but:
