Transcript of Greek Mythology Presentation

Beginning to end(...?) Greek Mythology In The Beginning Meanwhile... A little into the Future... Interesting Facts Links Documentary The Greek Mythology Family tree Starts with
A being named Chaos, Popular to contrary Belief, Everybody has they're own idea of who was first. Chaos Was named the Creator and Built the universe out of nothing, and from her (him or her, no gender, they're politically known as a woman.) Came Erebus, Tartarus, Gaea, And Uranus And Nyx.
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greek_primordial_deities) The Primordials from Chaos Moved to live on Earth, And now Gaea And Uranus Were married. Gaea Gave Birth to The Titans, Otherwise known as the 'Golden Age', They're Leader, Kronos, Not to be mistaken with Chronus The Primordial God of Time. Gaea Convinced her son Kronos to cut Uranus up with his scythe into millions of pieces and cast him out, with the titans Now in rule.
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titan_(mythology)) A Prophecy was made, Saying the children of Kronos Would come to Defeat the Titanomachy and bring about a new age. Kronos refused to let this happen, and ate his children the gods. Poesidon, Hades, Hestia, Hera and Demeter Were eaten while Rhea, Wife to Kronos, Had enough, and hid her baby Zeus from Kronos and let him eat a rock, believing it was Zeus. Later when Zeus grew up, he defeated Kronos, with the same scythe Kronos cut Uranus up with, and released his siblings, all of which grew inside Kronos thanks to they're Immortality.
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greek_mythology#Era_of_mythology_gods) Now i could go on and on about all the facts of the greek mythology but i won't so i'll just briefly say a few things off of the top of my head. For a strange yet helpful reason, the fates them selves, the spinners of the strings, helped by slaying 2 giants in the time of the Gigantomachy. As history may say different depending on who you ask, anything i have said through the duration of this presentation have been verified by several links and informational websites.
I honestly found try to give you a family tree or what can be described as a family tree with deities but you never know, and as i was saying, i would make one but i can't for two reasons. One is theres no chart big enough, and Two, theres so many beliefs on who came from who that i don't know what to think about it anymore http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greek_primordial_deities (Tab 1)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titan_(mythology) (Tab 2)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gigantomachy (Tab 3)

http://www.theoi.com/ (Extra Information) Feel free to watch but it is a rather long video. While it might be wrong, Aphrodite was born by once Uranus was cut up, his balls were thrown into the sea, and the sea foam moved to create Aphrodite, Considered a god but from the time of the titans. Different Reactions may come from this video, no flames. (Movie contains 'nude' Greek art and pictures) In the end the family tree of greek mythology is so messed up i can only give you s few examples of what it was like, since it being mythology, nothing is proven real This is the most accurate Family tree for Greek
Mythology I've ever seen. Most others include messed up beginnings and pairings I hope that you enjoyed my presentation of Greek Mythology or what i say about it and will maybe take the initiative to find out more at http://www.greekmythology.com/ I give credit to all links that were presented inside the presentation to avoid being sued and copyright infringement, thanks Wikipedia and google! This is the Second best family tree i've seen, a little hard to read but very accurate
