"CRONUS BECAME THE NEXT RULER. HE IMPRISONED THE CYCLOPES AND THE HECATONCHEIRES IN TARTARUS. HE MARRIED HIS SISTER RHEA, AND HAD MANY CHILDREN. HE RULED FOR MANY AGES; HOWEVER, GAEA AND URANUS BOTH HAD PROPHESIED THAT CRONUS WOULD BE EVENTUALLY OVERTHROWN BY A SON. TO AVOID THIS, CRONUS SWALLOWED ALL OF HIS CHILDREN AS THEY WERE BORN. RHEA WAS ANGRY AT THE TREATMENT OF THE CHILDREN AND PLOTTED AGAINST CRONUS. WHEN IT WAS TIME TO GIVE BIRTH TO HER SIXTH CHILD, RHEA HID HERSELF, THEN SHE LEFT THE CHILD TO BE RAISED BY NYMPHS. TO CONCEAL HER ACT SHE WRAPPED A STONE IN SWADDLING CLOTHS AND PASSED IT OFF AS THE BABY TO CRONUS, WHO SWALLOWED IT.”

"GAEA AND CRONUS SET UP AN AMBUSH OF URANUS AS HE LAY WITH GAEA AT NIGHT.  IT IS UNCLEAR AS TO WHAT HAPPENED TO URANUS AFTERWARDS; HE EITHER DIED, WITHDREW FROM THE EARTH, OR EXILED HIMSELF TO ITALY. AS HE DEPARTED, HE PROMISED THAT CRONUS AND THE TITANS WOULD BE PUNISHED. FROM THE BLOOD THAT WAS SPILLED ON THE EARTH, EMERGED THE GIANTS, THE ASH TREE NYMPHS, AND THE ERINNYES. FROM THE SEA FOAM THAT WAS PRODUCED , EMERGED APHRODITE.” 

THE CHILD WAS ZEUS.

"EREBUS SLEPT WITH NIGHT, EVENTUALLY GIVING BIRTH TO ETHER, THE HEAVENLY LIGHT, AND TO DAY, THE EARTHLY LIGHT. THEN, NIGHT ALONE CREATED DOOM, FATE, DEATH, SLEEP, DREAMS, NEMESIS, AND ALL THINGS THAT DWELL IN THE DARKNESS HAUNTING MANKIND. MEANWHILE, GAEA ALONE GAVE BIRTH TO URANUS, THE SKY. URANUS BECAME GAEA'S HUSBAND, SURROUNDING HER ON ALL SIDES. TOGETHER, THEY PRODUCED THE THREE CYCLOPES, THE THREE HECATONCHEIRES, AND TWELVE TITANS.” 

say amen, there he goes again

"HOWEVER, URANUS WAS A CRUEL FATHER AND HUSBAND. HE HATED THE HECATONCHEIRES AND IMPRISONED THEM BY PUSHING THEM INTO THE HIDDEN PLACES OF THE EARTH, GAEA'S WOMB. THIS ANGERED GAEA AND SHE PLOTTED AGAINST URANUS. SHE MADE A FLINT SICKLE AND TRIED TO GET HER CHILDREN TO ATTACK URANUS. ALL WERE TOO AFRAID, EXCEPT THE YOUNGEST TITAN, CRONUS.”

 "In the beginning, Chaos, an amorphous, gaping void encompassing the entire universe, and surrounded by an unending stream of water ruled by the god Oceanus, was the domain of a goddess named Eurynome. She was the Goddess of All Things, and desired to make order out of the Chaos. By coupling with a huge and powerful snake, Ophion, or as some legends say, coupling with the North Wind, she gave birth to Eros, god of Love, also known as Protagonus, the firstborn."
