Greek gods and demi-gods


Greek gods and demi-gods

The Fallen Angels are source of mystery and intrigue for many. They really aren’t that mysterious. God created Angels to serve Him by serving man (Hebrews 1:9-14). When Lucifer fell from grace he took a third of the angels with him (Rev 12:4). Some committed acts that got them locked up until judgement day and others roam the earth today.
Some have wondered what happened to the angels from Genesis 6 that came to earth and had babies with the daughters of man. This created a race called Nephilim (or Giants) on the earth. Have you realized by now that all myths are based in some form of reality? Such is the case with these Greek Myths. “Greek gods” were nothing more than angelic beings who came to the race of men to interbreed. This created a true demi-god situation where men of extreme size and power were created. Some may have even been hideous.
The Greek myths actually may give some insight into what those days were like, taken with a hefty dose of salt because they have been clouded in 1,000′s of years of story line and exaggeration.
So if this happened once why not again? The purpose of the inbreeding can be found in the instructions given at the fall.
15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”
Satan/Lucifer knows that the offspring must be a pure bred human. So he begins a DNA manipulation plan to ruin the seed of mankind. This becomes so awful that there is only one human family left on earth that hasn’t been ruined for evil and God wipes the earth of the whole mess. He then locks up those angels for a judgement day to come.
 4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days–and also afterward–when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown. 5 The LORD saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. 6 The LORD was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. 7 So the LORD said, “I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth–men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air–for I am grieved that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.
And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day
For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment
18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit, 19 by whom also He went and preached to the spirits in prison, 20 who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.
Whole mythologies were birthed from these events. Zeus and Poseidon and the whole mess were tales derived from these things.
There are those who would say that angels cannot have babies because of Luke 20:
  • Luke 20:31-41
35 But those who are counted worthy to attain that age, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; 36 nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.
One could say, however, that this is simply pointing out that angels do not die and is not a reference to their reproductive capabilities. They ate with Abraham while discussing Lot’s future in Sodom. They made food for Elijah. They do not have corporeal bodies but they can interact well enough with ours that we don’t know if we entertained them or not. So they interact well enough with our form. It is likely true that they do not procreate among themselves and that their state and number if final. But we are not told that one way or the other in biblical precedent.  Could Angels, being intelligent, use some form of genetic manipulation to have babies with mankind?
  • Hebrews 13
1 Let brotherly love continue. 2 Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.
It’s an interesting hypothesis. It certainly speaks to the Greek Mythologies basis in reality. There are those at the History Channel who would have you believe that the Greek Gods were Aliens who came down and interbred with Humans. That may be truer than THEY even realize, but it’s not Aliens from another world, but rather another dimension, the spirit realm.
It’s an interesting Idea anyway… to be continued…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

No Hiding... My Story

Why am I writing my story? So... here's the thing. The Pure Desire, Seven Pillars workbook asks me to write an addiction story. When I was __ this happened. Then this happened. Timeline style.

The workbook and videos also break down the limbic system, and how desires, fears, and auto-responses were mostly created early, before 6 years old, give or take.

I've been thinking about my history and timeline for years, wondering why I am the way I am. So this sounds like promising homework. I started in on paper, but the deep level I want to travel will take more space. I plan to outline every relevant (or possibly relevant) moment.

Also, I'm inspired to start again because of a KPBS special "Meet the Patels", in which Ravi Patel (as shown through the lens of his sister's (Geeta Patel's - Film Maker) camera. It's a long story, worth seeing. It showed the struggles of American dating vs the arranged or partially-arranged type marriage systems their culture us…

The Bell Tolls For Thee... Perspectives on Pain and Suffering

No man is an island,  entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were;  any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. John Donne Meditation 17
We are All Connected 
Before cell phones, WiFi, Social Media, Email, Cars, or even Electricity... small rural towns had the Church Bell to communicate mass messages. The Bell Tolls to communicate something important has happened, and get our attention.
John Donne, a pastor-poet in 1635, was suffering from an illness he was sure would lead to his death. He wrote the above quote after hearing the Bell Toll for the passing of his neighbor. He wondered if he was so ill his family tolled it for him, thinking he was dead.

When he says "it tolls for thee", Donne rea…
