MARAB0D

Holy Bible according to the Pagans

Recommended Posts

MARAB0D

It is even called Bibliotheca, a collection of the Books. Has all attributes of a Holy Scripture - Gods, prophets, prophesies, afterlife, a history of a great nation (Greeks) etc. Authorship unclear, sometimes thought to be written by Apollodorus of Alexandria in 2nd century BC.

1.1.1] Sky [uranus - marabod] was the first who ruled over the whole world.1 And having wedded Earth [Gea - marabod], he begat first the Hundred-handed, as they are named: Briareus, Gyes, Cottus, who were unsurpassed in size and might, each of them having a hundred hands and fifty heads.2

[1.1.2] After these, Earth bore him the Cyclopes, to wit, Arges, Steropes, Brontes3 of whom each had one eye on his forehead. But them Sky bound and cast into Tartarus, a gloomy place in Hades as far distant from earth as earth is distant from the sky.4

[1.1.3] And again he begat children by Earth, to wit, the Titans as they are named: Ocean, Coeus, Hyperion, Crius, Iapetus, and, youngest of all, Cronus; also daughters, the Titanides as they are called: Tethys, Rhea, Themis, Mnemosyne, Phoebe, Dione, Thia.5

[1.1.4] But Earth, grieved at the destruction of her children, who had been cast into Tartarus, persuaded the Titans to attack their father and gave Cronus an adamantine sickle. And they, all but Ocean, attacked him, and Cronus cut off his father's genitals and threw them into the sea; and from the drops of the flowing blood were born Furies, to wit, Alecto, Tisiphone, and Megaera.6 And, having dethroned their father, they brought up their brethren who had been hurled down to Tartarus, and committed the sovereignty to Cronus......

I am actually surprised that the Greeks abandoned their own scripture just to borrow a similar Jewish one. Perhaps people get tired of their own Gods.
