Mythology and theology

Figured it'd be a nice idea. This is not an invitation to argue religion as a lifestyle; keep the discussions as neutral as possible, please.

Every Roman god has fucked all their siblings and the rest are the offspring. Except for Venus. She's balls.

That is all.

Most Gods had sex with most things. It was usually the mortal who got punished for being raped, tho.

So true. Especially if they were raped by Zeus and Hera found out...

Still, it's unfair to claim mythology - particularly Greek - was all just creepy sex. There may be a fair deal of values dissonance, but remember that Zeus was considered a reasonable authority figure as the God of law, order and civilization.

No Zeus was just a crazy son of a bitch.

You could say that. I'm just explaining how he was viewed by others in mythology.

Greek mythology is my favorite, though I enjoy Norse and Egyptian.

Egyptian has got some pretty screwed up parts.
