message 16: by Amy (new)

Amy (Runawaymarbles) My question about Artemis;

how can she be an eternal virgin, but the goddess of childbirth? how can she be a protector of small animals, but love to hunt them?

I love how Rick Riordan protrays her.


message 17: by Diana (new)

Diana  (Higura_Natume) | 8 comments well if you like hunting, you want to keep them alive so you can keep hunting...

but i dunno about that virgin stuff

okay here we go she is the goddess of child birth because when she and her brother apollo were born artemis was born first and then helped her mother with the labor of apollo!

Victoria (vikkitori22) | 338 comments Mod
sure!


Waterfall *Daughter of Northridge Earthquake* (Falls) question!
did artemis drive the moon across the sky like apollo does?


message 28: by Diana (new)

Diana  (Higura_Natume) | 8 comments there never was a story about that

plus there was a separate person who represented the moon who fell in love with a boy and kept him sleeping for eternity and had his children or whatever


Waterfall *Daughter of Northridge Earthquake* (Falls) yeah ive never heard it either, but my friends say they do. And her name was Selene, i think.


message 30: by Diana (new)

Diana  (Higura_Natume) | 8 comments yeah selene!


Waterfall *Daughter of Northridge Earthquake* (Falls) Nother question!
Is there a flower or gem that artemis has?


message 32: by Victoria (new)

Victoria (vikkitori22) | 338 comments Mod
idk ask desi! she would know she did a whole ppt presentation on artimus as artimus!


Waterfall *Daughter of Northridge Earthquake* (Falls) haha i am doing one too. And a five page paper.


message 34: by Kristen (new)

Kristen | 183 comments Lucky you. I heard in a myth that she asked Zeus for:
A bow and arrows
All the world's mountains
A city
Eternal virginity


Waterfall *Daughter of Northridge Earthquake* (Falls) Sorta. It was more like this.
"I want a bow, silver. And a deerskin tunic short enough to run in. I only want one city-I don't like cities. I want ten hunting dogs, and fifty water nymphs to sing for me, as well as twenty wood nymphs to hunt with me."
Zues gave her the virginity.
(sorry. I just wrote a five page paper and a ten minute presentation on this.)


message 36: by Kristen (new)

Kristen | 183 comments No problem, but that was off the top of my head and I've never done a presantation on her.


message 37: by Victoria (new)

Victoria (vikkitori22) | 338 comments Mod
whos older apollo or artimus



message 38: by Kristen (new)

Kristen | 183 comments Artemis, by three days.


Waterfall *Daughter of Northridge Earthquake* (Falls) Really? Ive only heard one.


message 40: by Kristen (new)

Kristen | 183 comments I think it's three cuz' that's how long it took for Apollo to be born.


message 41: by Victoria (new)

Victoria (vikkitori22) | 338 comments Mod
idk


message 42: by Kristen (new)

Kristen | 183 comments It's so confusing some times...



message 43: by Diana (new)

Diana  (Higura_Natume) | 8 comments yeah it is

i think it doesn't matter all that much as long as you know the basic picture


message 44: by Kristen (new)

Kristen | 183 comments Yeah, but how can you see the basic picture if you're missing pieces?


message 45: by Victoria (new)

Victoria (vikkitori22) | 338 comments Mod
the basic picture isnt that hard... history repeats, religions use the same concepts so understanding isnt hard its the memorizing which names goes to which myths.


message 46: by Kristen (new)

Kristen | 183 comments Yeah, but Greek Mythology is different. There is always a question mark or some minor character blurring the picture. They have different ideas then Norse or Japenese or whatever religion....


message 47: by Victoria (new)

Victoria (vikkitori22) | 338 comments Mod
but the over all msg is the same, is what i mean


message 48: by Kristen (new)

Kristen | 183 comments Kinda, "You bow down and worship us"


message 49: by Victoria (new)

Victoria (vikkitori22) | 338 comments Mod
thats one way to look at it



message 50: by Kristen (new)

Kristen | 183 comments Yeah.......
