The Greek creation story began with only chaos Then out of the void appeared Erebus the unknowable place where death dwells and Night It was a place of death and silence it was an endless abyss of darkness Then somehow Love was born and from it came Light and Day Once there was Light and Day Gaea the earth appeared Afterwards Erebus mated with Night who bore Ether She was the heavenly light Then Night with no help from anyone else created vengeance fate doom and anything else that came to man from the darkness Following the same trend as the night Gaea bore with no help from anyone else Uranus the god of the sky He then became his mothers husband and from them came three Cyclopes three Hecatoncheires and twelve of the Titans The Hecatoncheires were huge creatures with fifty heads and one hundred arms They hated their father Uranus as he hated them which triggered him to put them back into their mothers womb This angered Gaea and as a result she plotted against him with her youngest son Cronus One night while Gaea and Uranus were in bed together Cronus came in and castrated him and threw the detached genitals into the ocean They say that after that the fate of Uranus is not lucid he either died or withdrew from the earth As he vanished he vowed revenge on them From his spilt blood came the giants the ash tree nymphs and the erinnyes and from his remains in the sea came Aphrodite the goddess of love Cronus then became the new ruler and married his sister Rhea They had many children but because Gaea and Uranus had foretold him that he would be replaced by a son he ate all of his male children Appalled by the acts of her husband Rhea took her sixth child and gave him to the nymphs
