Greek Religion

Before even traveling to Greece, I knew a little about their religion, but now living here I developed a new sense of what it was all about. I ran into a man while sight seeing the temple of Athena. He taught me Zeus was the main and most powerful god, followed by his brothers and sisters such as Hera, Poseidon, and Hades. After them came their children who consisted of Athena and Apollo.
The Greeks used these gods to explain things in their lives that they didn't understand. They were used in stories called myths, which are used in classes even today. Even though learning about this religion was interesting, I think I would rather keep my own religion. Keep tuned for more updates about Greece.
