Clash of the Gods: ZEUS

Thousands of years ago, they were used to help frame the world of the ancients, and dictate the guidelines of their societies. Today, they are often the first stories we learn as children, iconic tales where good and evil clash, and humanity and fantasy collide. But what is the reality behind these stories? From the epic tragedy of Medusa, Greek mythology’s most infamous female fiend, to Hercules, its greatest action hero, and Hades, master of the land of the dead and a god so feared no one would speak his name, explore these myths and the legendary figures who inspired them in CLASH OF THE GODS. Each episode connects ancient myths to actual historical events, as well as to events in the Bible and other cultures’ mythologies, gaining important historical insight from renowned scholars in search of the truth behind the legends.

    Kind of corny at times, but a good series.

    They really detail Zeus giving random pretty women the ol’ golden shower.I do something similar from time to time, but I have to talk to a court appointed doctor after.

    Why do people assume they’re not real?

    • Frank Holton

      Because organized religion relies on the fact that each respective religion must deny the existence of other religions in order to strengthen their own ‘god(s)’. Then again, who’s to say that any of them aren’t real? Science can’t because the foundations of understanding between it and organized religion doesn’t overlap on the timeline – but then you have to ignore Scientology… 

      It’s much easier to assume they aren’t real in order to reassure the current beliefs and maintain the status quo. If they are all real, then organized religion would break down

        Not necessarily. Any religion open to polytheism or a kind of aggregate monotheism could probably deal with it pretty well.

    History channel is irritating… like 2 minutes of content within a five to ten minute block, and constant narration based on the Gangland documentary series style. No thanks.

    Pagan myths are as soothing as soap operas, putting faith is these fantasies as the source of life and creation is very unsettling. Their arbitrariness only gives insecurity. All their Gods want to do is destroy their father creator, not unlike Satan and God the Father. A truly higher being is beneficent.
