Messed up on the previous reply the bottom half was me the top half was Nadai.
Prometheus gave humanity fire as a gift because we needed it to survive but in ancient times it wasn't just used to keep humans warm or help make tools and cook food, they used it to sacrifice to the gods. There was a time when the Greeks sent up burnt offerings to the gods as thanks and to ask for blessings. It probably wasn't too easy to appease the gods what with their infantile behavior always being moved to acts of violence or raping women indiscriminately. The gods weren't really all that worthy of worship, in my opinion.Lucky for us Prometheus
What has man done with the fire Prometheus stole from Olympia and passed unto man. Hardly appeasing the Gods with it I say, except those few individuals in history such as Plato or Socrates maybe many other scholars and some generals but as a whole even this country has lost remembrance and nostalgia of the Greeks and ancients.
Well in the literal sense then, I don't know that there would have been much to do for Prometheus anyway considering he'd been imprisoned on his rock for giving man fire anyway. Fire was a step towards evolution, yes. Without fire we would have been pretty sol. But I'm sure Prometheus got some kind of thanks from mankind for his sacrifice. At the least he was immortalized by man as the father of humanity.I was thinking spiritually when myth is literal so yeah Prometheus gave the caveman fire as an act of science and revolution then. Psychologically man has evolved from the caveman days so thank Prometheus for that I guess.
You're welcome. I think I'd first seen this spooky Skeleton Dance more recently, a few years ago. Old-skool Disney stuff is kinda out there ...I'd never seen that before, thanks for sharing.
There's a Disney Silly Symphonies I enjoy from 1929 (or, that's it says at least, anyways).
So to take it back to the original question of the post, & in the spirit of the silliness of Silly Symphonies , I came up with an idea while I was painting this, which I'm callingI know of the war about the titans vs Zeus. But does Zeus and Hades ever go to war?
As far as I understand him, Hades doesn't cause that much suffering at all. It's merely the realm he looks over that attributes him to evil -- but really, he isn't so much. He's a good guy, and he clearly loves Persephone. It's just in some variations of the story -- the more modern ones, I suppose -- that make him look bad. We've never really been very fair towards him. Poor guy.I just wanted to say that Hades is a good bro. He got his temper from his mother. I haven't heard really for some problems he caused to Zeus or to other gods - except Persephone. He just watches over his work and if he caused pain and suffering it's because he is the king of the Underworld.
