I was just browsing the internet about the Greek god Zeus and co. And it seems like the first accounts/stories about the Greek god/goddesses, was some where around 800-500 b.c.e.
Well if that's the case, did the people of ancient Greece knew the concept of the god/ god Zeus and co before 800-500 b.c.e.?

Not only Greek gods/myths, what about all other gods/myths in the world in general...

Some believe we are all born with a knowledge of higher being(s). What we do with it from there is what sets our beliefs or lack thereof apart.

Here's a link on Mycenean religion... http://richard-hooke...INOA/MYCREL.HTM and a link for a timeline of ancient Greece... http://www.religionf...an/timeline.htm

Your ad hominem connotes your sciolism. Now that is some funny commentary.

I believe that the Greek gods and goddesses were known well before 500 BC... They are referenced in Homer's Illiad and Odessy and Homer is thought to have lived around 850BC...

Mythologies came about when people developed their brains to notice gaps, the unexplained, so thats when they made stories and deities to explain them. Or in the case of the crusades, when someone needed an excuse and way to make a quick and cheap army with an excuse to attack some other place.

Or you could do what the romans did and steal it off the last great civilizations thinking "That big guy with a beard got them a great empire, why don't we use him?"

Also, I believe quite a few greek gods have been known to originate in older mythologies, I believe Ares was first used by the Thracians, hence according to even Greek legend he was born there.

"A picture is worth a thousand words, or so they say, so if it is; then here are a thousand and thirty two words to convince you of whatever I need to,"
Now, if you will, imagine a subject appropriate image here...
