Ye Gods!

“If you talk to God, you are praying. If God talks to you, you have schizophrenia." - Thomas Szasz

Anyone here remember the story of Prometheus?

He was a Greek Titan and son of another Titan, Iapethus. His brother was the famous Atlas and he had a twin brother named Epimetheus. Their names translate as "hindsight" and "foresight". Dad evidently had a sense of humor.

His old man also held a grudge against Zeus and one day led an ultimately failed revolt against the Gods. Prometheus, for whatever reason, chose to wage war against his father. Not a classy move.

After the God Wars Prometheus settled on sculpting as a hobby, eventually creating the entire race of man from humble clay. It was, however, the goddess Helena who actually breathed life into them.

All hail Helena!

Zeus was peeved over this creation of a new race, drawing a line in the sand, proclaiming man was never to learn the secret of fire.

Prometheus, ever the contrarian, promptly gave man fire. Zeus retaliated with the evils of Pandora's Box and the introduction of women onto the scene.

That bastard.

But that wasn't punishment enough as he then chained Prometheus to a rock on a mountain and ordered a great eagle to arrive at daybreak, whereupon it would rip out Prometheus' liver and eat it. The liver would grow back during the night and the horror would begin again at dawn. This continued for several centuries.

Jesus is a little pussy by comparison.
