The myth of Olympus

    The myth of Olympus, the legends of gods and goddesses that both helped and hurt humans under their control.  Who was your favorite god or goddess and why?  How did each one correlate or differ from one another?

      You assume they are a myth. Many believe they were the "sons of God" (or their offspring) refereed to in Gen 6 and other ancient texts. And some theologians believe the Hindu religion is based on them.

      You don't think they could have possibly existed?

        And, you assume they are not myth? See how that works?

        Just like many people believe in pink unicorns, but that doesn't mean they actually exist? roll

          I do not assume they are true, I assume they could be true or partially true

            Oh, so you haven't done the research to find out whether or not true? Good to know. Thank you for sharing that tidbit of information.

              What research?

              There is no evidence to verify it. Logical inferences is the method used.

              We exist, therefor other life could exist. We co-exist with a vast range of intellects and attributes, this same scenario can exist throughout the universe

              The "no other life in the universe" stance is not logically sound, but rather an emotional philosophy

                There wasn't anything in my statement that disregarded other forms of life. roll

                  Then there is nothing in your statement that disregarded Olympus stories

                    There's a reason why the stories are considered mythology(myths). roll And, if you are not willing to do the research to find out why. Then it would only be for one reason- chosen ignorance. Nothing more, nothing less. I'm done with this topic.

                    I don't have a favorite myth.

        Myth in the conceptual form I'm asking, and they could or couldn't exist, but the theory of myth still exists does it not?  Capitalism is a myth, communism is a myth, monarchy is as well.  Roman republic is also one as well, one of discipline and practical affairs.  Therefore Christian myth or Muslim myth is the same ordeal, one that is split between Abraham, but still a myth...does anything truly exist or just an augmented reality of another?  But the question was simply who your favorite god or goddess was, or in any myth in that regard what is your highest moral standard or ethical value?

          Understood, I actually did not know a myth could possibly to true. I believed it was always assumed to be an untrue story. And I know virtually nothing about the Olympus myths (other than I strongly believe the likes of these "gods" did exist) so can not comment
