Wednesday 9/1 What is hope doing in a jar with evil and suffering? - Greeks were pessimists, their myths end unhappily. - Hope is the greatest evil because it makes you think that you won’t experience the evils of the world. - We’re all going to die. Dead people were considered “the great majority”. The Great Flood (Hebrew) - humans are repulsive and should be destroyed - Noah’s family is the only people who should be saved - Noah builds the ark and gathers animals - The flood happens - Noah sends out a dove and it comes back with an olive branch as the sign of land - They landed on a mountain and reproduce the world The Great Flood (Greek) - Zeus disguised himself as human and visited society - He deemed humans repulsive - Told the gods that he wanted to flood the earth and kill all humans - The gods were disturbed and said if you destroy all beings, no one would be left to worship us - Deucalion and Pyrrha were saved from the flood because they were pious and just - This is a rare case in mythology where people care about morality
