    View full lesson:
    Before the creation of humanity, the Greek gods won a great battle against a race of giants called the Titans. Most Titans were destroyed or driven to the eternal hell of Tartarus. But the Titan Prometheus, whose name means foresight, persuaded his brother Epimetheus to fight with him on the side of the Gods. Iseult Gillespie shares the myth of Prometheus.

    If you read Percy Jackson (which I would highly recommend), in the Last Olympian of the book revealed that Prometheus only helped the humans to annoy the gods. When Hercules freed him he sided with titans and against the gods and demigods. When Thalia,daughter of Zeus pinpointed him, he replied saying that 'I won't deny that I want revenge'. Though the book is entirely fictional, it IS based solely off of Greek myths and legends. What if it was true?

    Isn't his story same with creation. Prometheus' equivalent is Lucifer. Lucifer the angel bearer of light gave the mankind the freedom of choice so that we can have the control to our destiny. So, angel lucifer is a hero then..

      Where's the source for this? Lucifer deceived humans after God had told them not to eat from the forbidden tree (implying that humans had free will from the start).
