(A parrellel to Typhon)
The myth of Earthquake has three different purposes. First, its shows the power of Zeus, being able to maintain peace and order in the universe which he rules. Earthquake is the first challenger of Zeus’s great power. Earthquake is a very formidable foe that has tremendous strength and size. Zeus got rid of Earthquake by himself and was able to triumph, but the triumph would not have been possible without the support and help of other gods. The Gods all thought and worked together to defeat this horrible monster. Zeus sets an example for all modern leaders to follow in this myth.
The myth of Earthquake is also used to explain a natural phenomenon. Earthquakes can cause great destruction. Throughout time earthquakes have destroyed cities, and killed people. Earthquakes have caused millions of dollars in damage like the earthquake in San Francisco in 1989. Earthquakes have always been feared greatly by people who have experienced them or heard of them and will frighten people for as long as life goes on.
The myth of Earthquake also explains the Bermuda Triangle, another phenomenon in nature. Many ships have disappeared wh
Here all of the Gods had been thinking hard of a way to destroy Earthquake. After the war between the Titans and the Gods, the Titans were imprisoned in Tuataras. Earthquake"tms legs were covered in a poisonous tar that instantly killed whomever it touched. He recognizes that in order to be a successful ruler you must listen to other people"tms advice, and trust in others as he did. This was the perfect idea, and now all Zeus had to do was lure Earthquake in between these three islands that created a triangle. Earthquake"tms appearance was down right revolting. Earthquake seemed to be a mix of many different animals. Hermes and Zephyrus were very careful not to awake the sleeping creature, which guarded the cave. Earthquake made all sorts of strange sounds, none that could be interrupted by any of the Gods. He was quickly engulfed into the funnel, and not even his great strength could pry him away from its hold. Zeus could not stand to let this go on. This allowed him to swim, scale walls, or travel across land at tremendous speeds. Earthquake was approaching fast, and Zeus had to think of something.
