The World Came Into Being With Four Divine Beings

According to the source found in the Hesiod’s Theogony, the ancient Greeks believed that four divine beings first came into existence: Earth (Gaea), Love (Eros), Chaos and the Abyss. The world came into existence because the Earth was forcibly separated from Heaven (Uranus) for a certain time so she could give birth. Afterward, Uranus’ genitals were severed by his son Cronus (the father of Zeus) and then thrown into the sea.
