He acted against Gods will to save mankind, Now Prometheus is a volcano
The space craft Voyager2 was launched 33 years ago, the guy who is keeping a watch on Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune & Uranus, currently sending data at 20 bytes a sec, it has sent images and data of all these 4 planets and their moons. It discovered for the 1st time that Jupiters moon Io (Ayee ow) is an extremely ill tempered moon. It has 400 volcanoes and gets 36 Sieverts of radiation a day (above 10 Sieverts causes paralysis and death)
(The internet kept tricking me b4 I could post this, until I fell asleep)
Prometheus is a character in Greek mythology. A volcano on Jupiters moon Io is named after him. But why? And Io is one of the lovers of Zeus like the other three of Jupiters moon …Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. Jupiter is the same character as Zeus. Greeks call him Zeus and Romans call him Jupiter. (Indians call him Brihas’Pati)
2900 years ago a story was written in Theo’gony. (The lineage of Gods) Zeus who is considered the “father of Gods and men” was angry on Prometheus. What Prometheus did is he tricked Zeus on two occasions to favor human beings. First he tricked Zeus to eat bone wrapped inside fat.
He offered two choices to Zeus. 1. Good meat inside Bullocks stomach and 2. Bones inside fat. SO Zeus was fooled. He discarded Bullocks stomach only to eat bones because he accepted the good looking fat. This created a precedent for human beings to keep the meat for themselves and put the the bones wrapped inside fat in fire as an offer to Zeus.
SO in retribution Zeus prevented human beings from using fire. Prometheus stole this fire and gave back to human beings. SO Prometheus was punished by Zeus. He was tied to a rock and a large eagle ate his liver everyday, over the night the liver would grow again. After years Hercules freed him by killing the eagle.
SO Zeus sent Pandora, the first woman, as a gift to human beings, against the advise of Prometheus, Epimetheus, Prometheus’ brother accepted the gift …Pandora opened the lid of her jar which let all ills, diseases and bad things out onto human beings. She closed the lid but hope remained inside.
One wouldn’t believe even 2900 years ago what was said about women (a cause of man’s misfortune):: Hesiod who wrote Theo’gony writes about Pandora “From her is the race of women and female kind: of her is the deadly race and tribe of women who live amongst mortal men to their great trouble, no helpmates in hateful poverty, but only in wealth.
SO some political rhetorics in India which describes recent Indian literature as a source of denigration of women and ascribe it to Manu and Brahmans are actually permeated by deadly ilitterates, they don’t understand world history and mythology neither they understand any of India’s. They often cite, Dhol Ganwar Shudra Pasu nari, ye sab….. But where knowledge gets copied, so also ignorance…
