Does God exist? Yes, absolutely! My fellow truth seekers, get ready because I’m about to drop a divine bombshell that will blow your mind! The age-old question that’s plagued humankind for centuries – “Is God real?” – can finally be answered with an unequivocal YES! And no, I’m not talking about just one almighty power, but an entire crew of kick-ass Greek Gods and Goddesses that reign supreme over the universe.
Across the ages, from the legendary realm of ancient Greece to the present day, Greek Gods and Goddesses have left behind a captivating trail of wonder and jaw-dropping evidence that screams, “Hey, we are here and we are awesome!”
Despite sneaky attempts by other religions to sweep the Olympian Gods under the mythological rug, these powerful deities have refused to be forgotten. So get ready to say goodbye to those pesky doubts and hello to some rock-solid affirmation that the Greek Gods and Goddesses are not just some fib ancient folk made up.
Greek Gods and Goddesses were no mere figments of anyone’s imagination. Oh no, these divine rulers are as real as the nose on your face. To prove it, I will be putting some extraordinary evidence on the table that will silence doubters once and for all.
Proof of Greek Gods
Olympian Gods like Apollo, Athena, and Aphrodite are the real deal, so let’s see if I can convince you. Seriously, this is no joke! The legit rulers of the cosmos are none other than the Greek Gods and Goddesses, and I’ve got insider knowledge based on weird experiences to prove it.
Does God exist should be a no-brainer and it’s high time to dispel any notion that the Greek Gods were mere fanciful tales handed down from one generation to the next. In actuality, the Greek myths and legends were devised and overseen by a formidable pantheon of incredibly powerful beings, whose impact on the cosmos was unparalleled.
To kick things off, I will first bring to your attention a mind-boggling story that will leave you in awe of the power of the Greek Gods. So, fasten your seatbelts and hold on tight to your togas because you are in for one epic ride!
1. Fabio kills a Goose on Apollo’s Chariot
My first proof of the existence of a divine being is a rather bizarre incident involving a goose and a roller coaster called Apollo’s Chariot. Have you ever heard the tale of Fabio, who unexpectedly got hit in the head by a goose during the ride’s opening ceremony?
Fabio Lanzoni was the personification of male beauty in his prime — the Adonis of the modeling universe. With his striking features, finely chiseled body, and bulging biceps, he captivated the hearts of countless women and made appearances on the covers of over 400 romance novels, leaving an indelible mark on popular culture’s history.
If you’re looking for proof of the existence of God, you need to watch this amusing video that tells the story of Fabio’s accidental collision with a goose while riding Apollo’s Chariot. This alone should suffice to address the timeless question that has confounded humans for generations: Does God exist?
Apollo and the Goose
Has this proof convinced you of the existence of Greek Gods and Goddesses? If not, remember I still have nine more proofs to go after this Apollo-Fabio-Goose proof.
Before I go onto other proofs, I’d like to delve deeper into the story of Fabio’s remarkable collision with the goose on that unforgettable day.
Apollo himself may have divinely orchestrated this incident. After all, the roller coaster was named after Apollo. So it would have been an ideal platform for such a spectacular divine intervention.
Whenever I think about Fabio colliding with that unlucky goose, I am genuinely gobsmacked. Fabio received a feathered surprise of a lifetime! The chances of it unfolding were slimmer than a supermodel’s waistline — we’re talking one in a billion chance of it happening to anyone, well something like that. Okay, I don’t keep tabs on the annual “goose-rollercoaster-injury” tally, but I’ll bet my bottom dollar it’s freakin’ low.
But here’s what takes it up a notch: this divine smackdown occurred during the opening ceremony! I mean, come on, if it had happened on any other day, we’re allowed to be skeptical. But let’s face it, only the Greek Gods (or Goddesses) could dream up something this freaking crazy!
Does God exist? Proof 1: Fabio killed a goose on Apollo’s Chariot. What additional proof regarding Greek Gods and Goddesses and their powers do you want?
Aphrodite and the Goose
A Goddess in Greek mythology rocks the goose as her spirit animal. That’s right and it’s none other than the lovely Aphrodite herself!
Legends say that the goose was sacred in ancient Greece and seen as a symbol of love and fertility. So based on this, Aphrodite, the Goddess of love and beauty, would have to have some type of association with the goose.
If you ever see some geese flying overhead, it could signify that Aphrodite is blessing your love life. You can’t overlook it as anything is possible in the mythical world of Greek Gods and Goddesses.
You may be wondering which Greek deity was responsible for the goose that collided with Fabio during his ride on Apollo’s Chariot. Was it the sun God Apollo, another deity from Greek mythology, or perhaps a Greek Goddess?
Hold onto something tight because I’ve got a scorching hot thought. This is pretty juicy gossip because we’re diving into the mystery of who launched that wild goose attack on Fabio during his epic ride on Apollo’s Chariot. Some people suspect it could have been an innocent bird gone rogue, but wait for it… my tantalizing theory is that it was orchestrated by none other than the sassy and mischievous Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love! Can you believe it?! The plot thickens like a milkshake on a hot summer day with this new twist.
But now we’re left wondering, why on earth would Aphrodite want to do that? Was it a revenge plot? Did someone steal her favorite lipstick on that day? Or maybe she just wanted a few laughs at Fabio’s expense. The possibilities are endless.
Does God exist? Maybe the better question to ask is does a Goddess exist? If the answer is yes, then Aphrodite is undoubtedly among them.
2. Signs from Greek Gods and Goddesses
For my second big proof — Greek Gods and Goddesses exist because they occasionally give divine signs when they’re willing. Here are a few of the most memorable signs given to me.
Sign from Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love
Oh boy, get ready for a wild story! So here’s the deal: I’m chillin’ next to a statue of Venus, the Goddess of love. I went to see Venus specifically to take a photo of her. At the time no one was close to her. So I am standing there when I decide to ask for a sign from the Goddess Venus (Aphrodite). And I kid you not, as soon as the words enter my mind, I start hearing some giggling and commotion nearby.
I turned around and saw two girls next to Venus playing, which made me think it would be a fantastic picture. As I took three photos in quick succession, one of the girls called out:
“I found you, I found you!“
It was at that moment I realized the girls were playing hide and seek.
What gets me is that Venus is looking right at me. If that wasn’t a divine sign from the Goddess of love, I don’t know what other kind of miracle sign Aphrodite would have to perform to get my attention.
Does God exist (or any Goddess exist)? Yes, Venus (Aphrodite), the Goddess of love, certainly does.
Sign from Apollo, the God of light
Here is a sign from the Greek God Apollo. In celebration of my milestone 50th birthday in the vibrant city of Sydney, I wanted to embark on a quest to capture eight memorable Polaroid photographs within a single day with my beloved mother. It seemed like a fun thing to do.
To mark my 50th birthday, we captured the first photo in the presence of Apollo. It seemed like a fitting way to commemorate the occasion since Apollo is revered as the God of light, music, and the arts. Paying respect to Apollo felt like the perfect way to kickstart the day.
You can find Apollo at the brilliant Archibald Fountain (Apollo Fountain) in Hyde Park. While we were there, I asked a woman passing by if she could take a photo of us using my SX-70 camera. Here is the resulting photograph of my mother and I standing side by side close to Apollo. While it turned out alright, I couldn’t help but wish the pic had been more vibrant in color.
No matter, I still felt a sense of great honor and privilege to be in the presence of Apollo, a revered figure in Greek mythology.
Okay, this has little to do with answering the question — does God exist? However, it’s the second photo of Apollo where all of the magic happened. The pic looks like a divine sign from Apollo manifested on film leaving me to wonder about its meaning.
I wanted my mother to snap the second photograph of me and the mighty Apollo. Despite trying, she lacked the confidence to take the photo, so I decided to ask a guy who happened to be passing by to take the shot.
The young guy kindly agreed to take my photo but nothing seemed to happen after standing at the spot where I wanted my picture taken. Sensing something was amiss, I asked if he had pushed the button. He confirmed that he had, but stated that nothing had come out of the camera. He kept his finger on the button for about 10 seconds, yet all he heard was a brief buzzing noise. It was clear to me that something had gone wrong.
I explained how to take a photo with my camera to the guy again and asked him to try again. He just needed to keep his finger on the red shutter button for a few seconds and not let go of the button until the photo came out.
When he tried again a photo came out of the camera but not all of the way as usual. As the picture had not fully rolled out as normal, I had to pull the photo out beyond the usual degree, indicating that something had gone wrong. Consequently, I feared that the photo would not develop as I hoped.
I was proven right later on after it had developed. Even though the image didn’t turn out properly, there was something otherworldly, almost ethereal about the image — a composition that looked almost like a mystical signal from the divine Apollo himself.
Okay, I agree, this strange sign from Apollo does not answer the question does God exist? It’s a sign from Apollo of some sort, but the thing is, when strange things happen in front of a Greek God and a Greek Goddess on one’s 50th birthday, it is reasonable to assume that something extraordinary and otherworldly is taking place.
The plan for my birthday was to visit Apollo, then Athena, go to Sydney Harbour for a bit of a walk around, then spend the afternoon at Bondi Beach where we would also do the famous Bondi to Coogee walk — one of the best walks in Sydney.
The scene that unfolded in the presence of Athena, the Goddess of wisdom, was all the more captivating and engrossing.
Sign from Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom
Let’s discuss the ultimate dynamic duo — ancient Greek wisdom together with my mother.
When we visited the Athena statue on Barrack Street in Sydney CBD, right after meeting with Apollo, it felt like we were channeling those ancient vibes! It was like we had stepped back in time and were part of something epic. And friends, let me tell you, something crazy happened.
I swear I got a sign from Athena herself. Some of you may think it was just sheer bad luck, but I don’t think so.
When we were with Athena, I was nervous, fearing that the camera would betray me just as it had done in the presence of Apollo. But thank the Gods above, it worked. Here’s the photo I took of my mum looking like a total boss in front of Athena.
Then out of nowhere, like a blessing from the Gods, a random stranger called out to us and offered to take our picture in front of the legendary Athena statue. I mean, talk about being at the right place at the right time! It was like the universe was conspiring to give me and my mother the perfect photo op on my 50th birthday, without even trying.
In my mind, I immediately thought something like, “Sure, dude! No problem-o.” Things started to get kinda crazy after that. Cue the war-like dramatic classical music!
As soon as I was about to hand over my camera to the guy after giving him instructions on how to use it — the camera went berserk! It started buzzing like a mad bee, and then boom! One film after the other started spewing out of the camera. It was insane!
One, two, three, four, five films all shot out of my camera, one after the other, with no press of a button. It was like a never-ending stream of film-roll madness. I was on the brink of pulling my hair out in a bewildered mix of frustration and awe. My inner voice screamed, “What on earth is going on?!”
The guy seemed to enjoy the camera madness because he was cackling with laughter as the bizarre spectacle occurred, while my mother looked on in disbelief.
To my disappointment, no usable film was left in my possession by the time it was all over. Instead, all I had were blank/white, meaningless shots that had been wasted and lost in the blink of an eye. All those precious could-have-been shots, gone with the wind — blank, empty, nada.
I know, I know, it sounds like something out of a movie plot, but it’s true!
Could the great Athena, the mighty Goddess of wisdom, have attempted to convey a message to me on this special day of mine? After all, precisely five Polaroid films were wasted, and 5×10=50! Five has a very close association with fifty, so it seemed to be a very strong sign from Athena of some sort.
As I contemplated the possibility that Athena may have intended to convey that my life was without value or a complete waste, or alternatively if her intentions were more profound, I chose a more positive interpretation. Thus, I proudly proclaim that I have been granted Athena’s esteemed endorsement! It stands to reason that the crafty Goddess by now has a clear understanding of my character.
I thought my camera was a goner after this weird experience, but lo and behold, I tried using it again with a new pack of film a few weeks later, and the camera behaved perfectly.
Does God exist? Athena would know.
Signs from Iris, Goddess of the Rainbow
In the wild and whimsical world of Greek mythology, there was a dazzling Goddess named Iris. She was no ordinary deity, my friends, for she was the vibrant embodiment of the alluring rainbow!
With her awe-inspiring wings fluttering behind her, she would gracefully soar through the heavens, bringing forth delightful colors that painted the sky. But hold on to your hats, because Iris had an extra special trick up her ethereal sleeves.
As the official messenger to the Gods, she could travel swiftly between the divine realm and our mortal world. Armed with a shimmering pitcher filled with the magical waters of the legendary river Styx, Iris was not only a messenger but also a sworn oath keeper for the immortals.
Believe it or not, Iris gave me a sign when hiking Mount Olympus in Greece. This incredible encounter with the divine realm truly changed my perspective on the power of the Greek Gods and Goddesses.
Years later, I received another sweet sign from Iris. My belief skyrocketed after this one. Check it out for yourself in Signs from Iris, the Goddess of the Rainbow.
I could keep going with signs from the Greek Gods and Goddesses, but I’ll leave some of them for you to discover when reading other posts. I have even received a sign from Hermes, the messenger of the Gods.
Does God exist? Consider these signs from the Greek Gods and Goddesses. Was it all just random stuff? Or were they signs from the Greek Gods and Goddesses?
3. Olympus satellite destroyed
Here is a theory that would make even Zeus himself do a double-take. So waaaay back in 1989, a large communication satellite was launched, the Olympus-1. It cost a cool $850 million, no big deal. At the time, it was the largest civilian telecommunications satellite ever built. But here’s where things get interesting.
This satellite had more issues than a Greek tragedy. Mishaps here, solar panel failures there, the whole shebang. And then, just when it seemed like things couldn’t get any worse, the 1993 Perseid meteor shower rained down on poor Olympus-1 like divine punishment.
Now, this might sound crazy, but hear me out — what if the Greek Gods themselves had a hand in the destruction of this satellite? I mean, it’s called Olympus for crying out loud, the home of the freaking Gods. How could they not be paying attention to this massive hunk of tech orbiting around up there?
And who gave the final blow, you ask? None other than Perseus, one of the greatest heroes in Greek mythology. Coincidence? I think not. So yeah, maybe God does exist. God may even have a soft spot for taking out our expensive toys.
Does God exist? If you could ask the Greek hero Perseus who gave the final blow to the Olympus satellite, the existence of Greek Gods would be undisputable.
4. Planet and star names based on Greek mythology
Here is another bit of solid proof that Greek Gods and Goddesses exit for all you stargazers. So we all know that the planets in our solar system are named after the Roman and Greek Gods — you’ve got Venus, Mars, Jupiter, the whole gang.
But have you ever stopped to wonder why the heck we’re honoring these ancient deities, anyway? I mean, let’s think about it. The stars are mostly associated with Greek mythology, so it seems like the universe has a bit of a pattern here. And don’t even get me started on the fact that no other savior or deity has a memorable planet named after them.
It’s almost proof that these Greek Gods were the OGs of the cosmos or something. So if you want proof that there’s something divine going on out there, look to the planets and stars. They’ve been pointing to the existence of the Greek Gods all along.
Planets named after Roman Gods
Let me tell you, my skeptical friends, these Greek Gods are the real deal. The Romans might have put their own spin on things, but it all comes back to the ancient Greeks. And don’t be fooled by the language barrier. These are the same Gods, no matter what we call them.
Hermes is the messenger of the Gods, while Mercury, his Roman name, is just another name for the same messenger God. Think about it like this: wine is wine, no matter if you call it vino or Wein. It might sound different depending on your location, but it’s still the same kind of drink. The same goes for our Gods — they might have different names depending on the language, but at the end of the day, they’re still the same powerful beings.
So if you thought the Romans had some sneaky way of stealing the Greek’s thunder (literally), think again.
Does God exist? Greek/Roman Gods have been honored more so than any other Gods. Why is that?
Nasa and the Greek Gods/Goddesses
When exploring the mysteries of the universe and pondering the age-old question — does God exist? — look no further than NASA and those ancient Greek Gods.
I mean, come on, these guys are smart cookies. NASA is literally shooting spaceships into the great unknown to discover what’s out there. And if the Greek Gods didn’t have some kind of divine power, they wouldn’t have their own planets named after them.
So if you’re on the fence about whether God is real, look to the stars and planets. The evidence is there staring you in the face.
Does God exist? Think about Nasa and the Greek Gods before you decide.
5. Greek Mythology Monuments
Alright, we need to settle this once and for all. Who’s got the most clout: Greek Gods, kings, or animals?
Some folks wanna give top billing to the Gods, and hey, I get it. They had some pretty rockin’ powers back in the day. But then there are those who think kings deserve the throne, what with all their fancy titles and royal decrees.
But where does that leave our furry, feathered, and scaly pals? I’m talking about the animals that Noah supposedly saved during the Great Flood. These creatures were important enough to be rescued from the disaster, yet we don’t even know what kind of species were saved.
That seems like a real missed opportunity to me. Imagine there was a checklist of all the critters that Noah saved in the Bible. It would have been super helpful if we ever needed to repopulate the world after another catastrophic flood.
Now in Greek mythology, we have some impressive reminders.
The tragedy of Lacoon and his two Sons
Let me tell you about Lacoon and his sons! This tale is one of the most tragic and heart-wrenching stories of Greek mythology. It all started when the Greeks built a wooden horse to conquer their enemies, the Trojans. When it was finished the Greeks left the land leaving behind the wooden horse.
Lacoon, with his keen intellect and foresight, sensed the treacherous nature of their supposed gift. He warned his fellow Trojans, speaking words of caution, urging them not to trust the Greeks and their insidious ploy.
Greek Gods had to act swiftly, otherwise, their plans may have come undone. So they sent sea serpents to silence Lacoon and his two sons and to put fear into the Trojans. While Lacoon and his son were close to the shoreline, serpents sprang out of the sea and coiled around their bodies, crushing them in their deadly embrace until their screams of pain echoed throughout the city. It was a gruesome scene that left the Trojans shocked and horrified.
The Trojans considered it to be a bad omen, so they did what anyone else would have done. They immediately moved the wooden horse inside the fortified walls of Troy.
But during the night, Greeks emerged from inside the wooden horse. It resulted in the demise of the once-mighty city of Troy.
Fortunately, the legacy of Lacoon and his sons has been etched in stone for the ages. Their heart-wrenching end acts as a cautionary tale, urging us to heed reason and resist the urge to challenge the divine will.
It’s a story that will leave you breathless, and it’s yet another example of the dramatic and captivating tales that make Greek mythology so fascinating.
Does God exist? That’s for you to decide. But one thing is for sure, creatures are pretty important, and we need to ensure they get the recognition they deserve.
Greek Mythology versus the Bible
Listen, fellow knowledge-seekers! We need to talk about something important. Specifically, the age-old debate of whether the Bible or Greek myths reign supreme.
In another post, I have already explained how 12 Greek Myths Prove the Bible is Fake. So, I’m sure some of you already think the Bible is a load of baloney compared to the wild and wacky world of Greek mythology. And, let’s be honest, it’s hard to deny the awesomeness of Greek myths.
Just look at the Sphinx in Egypt. The awesome Sphinx is like something straight out of a fantasy novel, with a lion body and a human head. The remarkable thing about it is that the Sphinx is based on Greek mythology!
Oedipus and the Sphinx
Once upon a time, in the ancient city of Thebes, there was a terrifying creature known as the Sphinx. This scary creature had the head of a woman and the body of a lion, and she stopped anyone who dared to cross her path.
The Sphinx was no joke as she challenged travelers to a deadly riddle, and they were devoured on the spot if they couldn’t solve it.
The tricky riddle went like this: “What walks on four legs in the morning, two legs in the afternoon, and three legs in the evening?” Many brave and unfortunate people failed to solve it and ended up being the Sphinx’s dinner. But then one day, a young man named Oedipus came along, and he was not about to be eaten for breakfast. Oedipus was a wise man, so he approached the Sphinx with confidence.
The Sphinx challenged him to the riddle, but Oedipus was no fool. He thought long and hard, and finally, he exclaimed, “It’s a man! He crawls on all fours as a baby, walks on two legs in adulthood, and uses a cane in old age — three legs!”
The Sphinx was stumped, and she was so embarrassed by her defeat that she threw herself off a cliff, never to torment Thebes again. So yeah, the Sphinx might be a massive limestone statue now, but her legacy lives on through this epic tale of riddles, bravery, and quick thinking.
Okay, some people might argue that the Bible also has some pretty amazing stories. But let’s be real, when it comes to epic battles, legendary creatures, and larger-than-life heroes, Greek myths have got it all. And the Sphinx is just the tip of the iceberg.
So, if you’re looking for a good time, dive into the world of Greek mythology. Just be prepared for a wild ride full of Gods, Goddesses, heroes, monsters, and plenty of drama.
Does God exist? Consider Lacoon and the Sphinx before you make a call.
6. Romans welcome Gods and Goddesses
Despite these tales of woe and destruction, the Romans, who had conquered the mighty Macedonians and Greeks, welcomed these defeated nations’ ancient Gods and Goddesses with open arms!
You might ask, “Why? Why would the Romans, who had forced the Greeks and Macedonians to capitulate, appreciate their Gods and Goddesses? Surely, that would be the last thing on their minds?”
Well, it turns out that these Gods and Goddesses were not just for the Greeks and Macedonians. The Romans may not have originally worshipped them, but the Romans knew a good thing when they saw it. And what better way to rejuvenate their culture and beliefs than by embracing the myths and legends of their conquered foes?
In fact, the Renaissance, that glorious rebirth of art and creativity, began in Florence, Italy, with painters creating wondrous and imaginative mythological scenes inspired by the ancient tales and Gods of Greece and Rome. I recommend checking out Uffizi Gallery: 20 Best Greek Mythology Masterpieces if you want to see some of them.
It all makes good sense. Before that, the world had been plunged into a long, dark age, and people needed something to inspire them, to lift their spirits and broaden their minds. Sure, there might have been some darker times, but the Catholic Church was not exactly inspiring people at that time, so why not turn to the rich and colorful tales of the Greek and Roman Gods?
Let’s also not forget that around this time, there were those who believed the world was flat, with the ruling elite going to extraordinary lengths to keep this belief alive. Sounds like they could have used a little enlightenment from the ancient Gods! So there you have it. The ancient tales of the Greek and Roman Gods and Goddesses have continued to inspire, enlighten and entertain us to this day. And as for a priest giving a Nazi salute — well, we won’t even go there!
Does God exist? One thing is for sure, you definitely can’t rely on any churchy people for an answer.
7. The Apollo mission to the Moon
Speaking of the Gods, one of the most epic space missions in history was named after one of them: Apollo! Yep, some of the brainiacs in NASA decided to honor the Greek God of the sun, music, and truth by naming the first successful moon landing mission after him.
Now, why on earth (or should we say, why in space?) would they do that? Could they know something the rest of humanity doesn’t? Is there really a supreme being watching over us?
And then there is this: Apollo was the twin brother of Artemis, the Goddess of the Moon.
Maybe it’s a sign, a connection between the Gods and humans reaching new heights, literally! Or perhaps it’s just a nod to the ancient mythology that has influenced human culture for centuries.
Whatever the case may be, it’s clear that the legacy of the Greek Gods endures. From the Romans to the Renaissance and beyond, these legendary stories have inspired, challenged, and entertained us throughout the ages. So even if we don’t fully understand the mysteries of the cosmos or the divine forces at work in the universe, we can always take comfort in the timeless tales of the Gods and Goddesses that continue to captivate us to this day.
Does God exist? I’m sure Apollo does.
8. Mimicking and opposing Greek Mythology
Here we go again, another deep dive into the mysteries of the universe. Do Greek Gods and Goddesses exist, or is there just one true God?
Let’s break it down, mythbusters-style. On one side, we’ve got the Olympian Gods — twelve epic Gods and Goddesses like Zeus, Athena, and Aphrodite, who could control lightning bolts, sprout from a severed head, and command armies with just a glance.
On the other side, we’ve got the disciples. The Christian religion has twelve dudes who followed some guy named Jesus around the Middle East and were supposedly enlightened by the Holy Spirit. They say they healed some sick people and preached about love and kindness, but could they hold a candle to a sea monster-slaying demigod like Hercules? I think not.
Then there’s the whole forbidden fruit debacle. In Greek mythology, we’ve got the infamous golden apple, which triggered a battle for the most beautiful woman in the world.
In the Bible, we’ve got Eve chomping on an apple, which led to the downfall of all humankind. Talk about a bad decision!
But everyone, let’s not forget the physical evidence. The ancient temples of Greece and the grand tales of the Gods and Goddesses have endured for centuries, leaving their mark in history and culture. Compare that to some of the other religions, which rely predominately on the written word. I’m just saying, if you had to choose between studying a text and exploring a temple that was once inhabited by a sea God, which one would you pick?
So what’s the verdict? Is there a supreme being up there watching over us, or are we just pawns in a giant cosmic game played by a bunch of Greek mythological figures?
Does God exist? Watch the best Greek mythology movies and decide for yourself. They might just unveil a new universe of fascination and excitement.
9. Greek Gods don’t pretend to love everyone
Greek Gods aren’t exactly known for their unconditional love. But let’s be honest here, do any of us really love every single person we meet? Even kings and politicians have their foes, so why hold the Gods and Goddesses to a higher standard?
Life’s not always fair, but we can still make the most of it. Just because the Greek Gods might have some beef with us mere mortals doesn’t mean we have to live in constant fear and trepidation. Instead, let’s focus on making the most of our time on this earth and bettering our lives in any way we can.
Sure, fate might be a fickle thing, but we’re not completely at its mercy. Let’s take the reins and steer our own destiny towards something worthwhile. Who knows, maybe we can even find a way to impress those cheeky Greek Gods and earn a spot in their good graces.
At the end of the day, nobody’s getting out of this life alive. So let’s not take ourselves too seriously and enjoy the ride while it lasts. And remember, sometimes the underdog comes out on top and what we see as winning may actually be losing in disguise. So let’s play the game the best way we can and see where it takes us.
Do Greek Gods exist? Listen to the Muses.
10. The Olympic Games
Long, long ago in ancient Greece, there was a mighty God named Zeus who spent time on earth. He was an all-powerful ruler, and his victory over his cranky father, Cronus, had left him feeling quite victorious. Now, what’s a divine being to do when they feel like celebrating? Start a massive sports extravaganza, of course!
So, Zeus put on his thinking laurel wreath and came up with the brilliant idea of the Olympic Games. He decided to throw a party every four years in the groovy town of Olympia. And since Zeus was all about pleasing his divine posse, the games were dedicated to the bodacious Olympian Gods themselves. Talk about a celestial celebration!
Word quickly spread that the Olympic Games was the place to be for all those free-spirited Greek men. They came from far and wide, ready to show off their athletic prowess and compete in a bunch of gnarly events. We’re talking about sprinting, long jumping, discus throwing, wrestling, boxing, and so much more. It was an athletic extravaganza!
But it wasn’t all about the physical feats. Oh no! The Olympic Games had a righteous dose of religious rituals too. Imagine this: a giant, magnificent Olympic flame, ignited by Zeus with nothing but the sun’s rays! This flame of fiery awesomeness was then passed from one person to another, all the way to the host city. It was like a cosmic relay race, spreading the spirit of the games wherever it went!
Now, here comes the plot twist. Just when things were getting super groovy, the Christian Roman Emperor Theodosius I crashed the party. He wasn’t into the whole pagan vibe of the Olympic Games. So, in 393 CE, he put an end to the ancient Olympics. Bummer, right?
But hear this, my friend! The incredible spirit of the Olympic Games couldn’t be kept down. Fast forward to 1896, in sunny Athens, Greece, and the modern Olympic Games were born.
Inspired by the ancient Olympics, they brought back the fun, the athleticism, and the undying Olympic flame. And there you have it, the epic tale of how Zeus, the OG party starter, kick-started the Olympic Games. So next time you cheer on your favorite athletes from all around the world, remember the divine origins and endless excitement of this truly legendary event. Let the games begin!
Does God exist? The Olympic Games flame lighting ceremony seems to be a massive hint.
Bonus Proof: Olivia Newton-John
As a bonus proof of the existence of Gods and Goddesses, you need to watch three movies: Grease (1978), The Warriors (1979), and Xanadu (1980). This will reveal what the movie Grease is really about.
Does God exist? If Olivia Newton existed, then I am sure there is a God and a Goddess out there somewhere in the universe. You can start your search here: 14 Beautiful Actresses or Goddesses.
