If you have read my explanations why evolution isn't science,
you would know that all those things are just junks done by
people who have no idea about the difference between science
and philosophy. They don't know what they are doing.
The Bible is lies. Here is the real story of creation, well
before the fables and lies of the Bible were dreamed up.
Gaia and Ouranos [Heavens] began the cycle of life that
eventually gave rise to a race of formidable Immortals know as
the Titans who in turn mated with one another to create Zeus
and the other more benevolent gods and goddesses.
Kronos and Rheia
Zeus is a son of Titans. The Titans are twelve children born to
of Ouranos and Gaia. They were the first Immortals to assume
the guise of human beings but they were not humane or in any
way human-like. Their reign as the dominate force on earth was
one of impropriety and deplorable excesses. Ouranos saw the
outrageous behavior of his children and gave them the name
Titans, which means Strainers or Stretchers. Ouranos foresaw
that they would eventually pay a heavy price for their
indulgences because they strained and stretched the bounds of
propriety and abused their seemingly limitless powers. Not all
of their deeds are recorded but it is clear that the most
outrageous of the Titan gods was the youngest, Kronos.
Ouranos was the first child of Gaia and she assumed that he
would be her companion and subordinate ... she was wrong.
Ouranos became more and more demanding until Gaia finally had
no choice but to enlist the assistance of her Titan children to
subdue him. Kronos was the only one to step forward and
confront Ouranos ... he attacked his father, mutilated his
manhood and took away his authority. Eventually Kronos became
as domineering as his father had been but his tyranny was not
destined to last. Gaia and Ouranos told Kronos of a prophecy in
which one of his sons would defeat him and become the new
master of heaven and earth.
Kronos did not understand that the prophecy that Gaia and
Ouranos had given him was not something he could avoid ... it
was his destiny and there was nothing he could do to change it.
From his home on the peaks of Mount Olympos, Kronos inflicted
his will on his brothers and sisters as well as the other
children of Gaia and Ouranos ... he thought his sovereignty
would be eternal. He married his sister Rheia and they began to
have children. In a vain attempt to thwart his destiny, Kronos
swallowed each of his children as soon as they were born.
The Birth of Zeus
After the birth and consumption of five children, Rheia began
to plot against Kronos. When the sixth child was born, Rheia
presented a stone to Kronos in place of the baby ... in his
arrogance and haste, Kronos swallowed the stone without
suspecting the ruse.
Kronos and Rheia

Rheia named the infant Zeus and took him to the island of Crete
where she gave him to the semi-divine Kouretes of Mount Ida so
that he could be reared in secret. The Kouretes entrusted Zeus
to the Nymphs of Mount Ida who placed him in a cave and saw to
Kronos had no idea that Zeus had escaped his notice because the
Kouretes concealed Zeus's hiding place with carefully
orchestrated and clamorous demonstrations to drown out any
noise the infant made as he cried and made a ruckus. As the
years went by, the swallowed children inside Kronos began to
mature but could not escape from their father's entrails. Zeus
also matured and became a powerful young god dedicated to
freeing his siblings and punishing his father for his
The Fight with Kronos
When Zeus reached maturity, he ambushed Kronos while the aged
god was out hunting. Zeus kicked Kronos in the stomach so hard
that he vomited up the stone and the five children he had
swallowed. In this way Demeter, Hades, Histia, Hera and
Poseidon were born. Zeus took the stone that Kronos vomited up
and placed it at the foot of Mount Parnassos near the city of
Delphi and proclaimed that the stone would be a portent and
marvel for the mortals of the earth for all time. The stone was
called the Omphalos [Navel] and its location became known as
the Navel of the Earth.
Briareos, Kottos and Gyes
Briareos, Kottos and Gyes played an important part in the lives
of Zeus, his father Kronos and his grandfather Ouranos. The
formidable brothers were three of the most terrible creatures
ever born to Gaia and Ouranos ... they have fifty heads and
fifty arms sprouting from their massive shoulders.
When Briareos, Kottos and Gyes were ready to leave the womb of
Gaia, Ouranos would not let them be born ... as they attempted
to come out, Ouranos pushed them back inside. This was one of
the reasons Gaia asked her Titan children to attack Ouranos and
mitigate his aggressive behavior. This was also the reason
Kronos accepted the gruesome task of mutilating his father.
With Ouranos neutralized, Kronos assumed that he would become
the lord of heaven and earth. In an attempt to please Gaia,
Kronos freed Briareos, Kottos and Gyes. The three brothers were
not only awesomely strange and frightening, they were also very
handsome. When Kronos saw them, he feared that they might
overpower him or that Gaia would make them her favorites and
thus take the authority he had assumed after Ouranos had been
dethroned. As time passed, Kronos became as overbearing as
Ouranos had been. He forced Briareos, Kottos and Gyes back
underground before they became too strong for him to master.
When Zeus defeated Kronos, he took mercy on Gaia and freed
Briareos, Kottos and Gyes. He fed then ambrosia and nectar
until they regained their vitality. Zeus did not fear the three
monstrous boys because he had no doubts about his own strength
and authority. Briareos, Kottos and Gyes posed no threat to
Zeus because they knew that he was their savior ... they vowed
to serve and protect him in any way they could.
Life on Mount Olympos was not always as polite and well ordered
as we might wish to believe. During a fierce argument, Hera,
Poseidon and Athene attacked Zeus and put him in shackles. This
was a dangerous situation for Zeus because they were without
doubt, three of the most powerful Immortals on Mount Olympos.
Zeus could have easily subdued each of them separately but
their combined strength was too much for him. Fortunately, the
Nereid Thetis saw what was happening and summoned Briareos to
help Zeus. When Briareos arrived on Mount Olympos, he did not
threaten the three hostile Immortals ... he simply sat beside
Zeus ... Hera, Poseidon and Athene retreated without another
The War with the Titans
Even thought Kronos had been defeated by Zeus and forced off
Mount Olympos, he was not going to surrender his authority
without a fight ... he summoned the other Titans to help him
overcome Zeus and the new Olympians.
When Zeus realized that the Titans were going to fight, he
summoned the ancient Immortals to an assembly. Zeus promised
them that they would retain their powers and domains if they
would fight with him against the Titans ... he also told them
that they would regain the spheres of influence that Kronos had
taken from them. The Oath River Styx was the first to vow her
support for Zeus ... she also induced her children to join in
the war against the Titans. Many of the other ancient Immortals
were likewise persuaded and allied themselves with Zeus.
With the battle-lines clearly drawn, Zeus and his loyal
Immortals confronted the Titans ... the long and destructive
war began. The war lasted for ten years and was finally decided
when Briareos, Kottos and Gyes entered the fray ... they
bombarded the Titans with boulders and buried them. Zeus put
the Titans into Tartaros [the Pit] and made Briareos, Kottos
and Gyes their guardians. It might seem odd that Zeus would put
the three monstrous brothers back underground but they
willingly accepted their assignment as guards of the Titans
because of their respect for Zeus and not because he compelled
them to do so.
