  • Hey.Jester Sir. In Orpheus Zeus described it as follows ……From earth, heaven, water to hell, you are the supreme king. Your lightning strike will shake the foundation of Olympus and frighten all spiritual and gods' gathering. Throughout the universe, the unyielding goddess of Moira has succumbed to you, the Eternal Father God. You drive the wind, cover the sky with your clouds, tear up the sky with your lightning. You control the arrangement and movement of stars at the foot of your burning throne. Ruthless angels pay attention to make all people abide by your laws. Every spring you bring flowers back to life, every winter you bring rime back to Dionysus your priest becomes the seasonal disseminator, eternal, powerful and omnipotent. Finally, I just want to say that Gwyn borrowed the image of Zeus. Like a Supreme Being. But genocide deity sounds cooler.

    • In Greek myth he had authority over the literal sky, lightning and influence over most Gods but he wasn't Supreme Being nor was his power absolute as Hades and Poseidon were relatively equal (Given Hades could revoke immortality he was arguably stronger). Zeus was even the youngest of the original Gods with the role basically being due to drawing lots/straws. Both are King of the Gods but by no means Supreme Beings, truly omnipotent or even necessarily the strongest.

      In Greek myth before the Gods there were Titans with the closest to a Supreme Being being Chaos who predates everything in existence and created it (as required) but presumed to undo everything one day.

    • But as the third king of God and not overthrown, in view of Hades Poseidon's rights are not more extensive than Zeus. He should be supreme Being.Sir. Greek mythology Who do you think is supreme being?Chaos is indeed supreme, but chaos is a state of disorder. He did not rule over everything as Zeus did.or say chaos gave birth to the world, but Zeus was the ruler.

    • A Supreme Being is the first creator of all reality. That is what a Supreme Being is. In mythology Hades arguably has more command of the setting as he gets all the souls of the dead, chooses their afterlives, is the older of the brothers and could if he wanted revoke the immortality of any of the Gods just he barely interacts as he focused on the underworld and enforcing mortality. Zeus could command most Gods and one of the most powerful but not all as Poseidon and Hera for example both had moments were they came in conflict with little fear. Supreme Being don't have to necessarily rule, Chaos is the Supreme Being as it's the original creator of all which is what it means, if they aren't the original creator God they do not count as one as that's the definition of a Supreme Being.

      The reason Hades was not worshiped was because he was feared even by the Gods in some versions but rarely interacted as he just didn't care wanting to merely focus on his job. Zeus and others appeared more but often because they were screwing with mortals thus more "involved" with mortals. Media tends to treat Zeus as the God archetype and Hades as the Satanic archetype but in myth that wasn't really the case just media pandering more to modern religious concepts/groups. As someone who's been obsessed with Greek mythology for many years I can say without hesitation Zeus may be the King of the God and arguably the most powerful (or at least one of them) but by no means a Supreme Being of the myths especially when clear others rival him (namely his older brothers), the world and life existed long before him.

    • Chaos the universe was born. It's also the supreme being In Greek mythology, Zeus is described as the Supreme God who rules all things in the universe. This does not affect the coexistence of the two supreme beings. As you said, sir, the supreme being is the creator of all beings. TheProtogonos Deity is not necessarily stronger than the new Deity. In this supreme being type of ,there is a description of a god who has the supreme leadership of the universe. According to the description, Zeus is the God King. And rules the universe.

    • There is only one Supreme Being per setting and Zeus only ruled over most Gods, he had no true authority in the Underworld just the Sky and over lower Gods (his children and nephews/nieces mainly), Chaos wasn't weaker as it's implied one day to end all things but left vague plus the Fates were definitely stronger than Zeus. The reason the Greeks said he reigned supreme was merely a way of saying he held influence over most things including their day to day lives similar to when a king is said to reigned supreme. Zeus nor Gwyn are by any means Supreme Beings just rulers.

    • Most people in China believe that Zeus was the supreme god in Greek mythology. Of course, some people also believe that chaos is the beginning of everything and is supreme. I don't think it's a cultural difference. But each age has its own supreme being. As you said, Sir Zeus nor Gwyn are by any means Supreme Beings. 

      I've got the answer, Sir, I had a great time talking to you, and I'm ready to take a break. Have a nice day. Remember to wear a mask and be safe. See you next time.
