GREECE -- THE GREAT FLOOD
In early history, it is not known if perhaps it was even before the Golden Age of man, humans became more horrible and wicked as each day passed, and Zeus got angry with them all. One day he decided to demolish them, and Prometheus - the Titan who had made mankind - was warned of the flood Zeus was going to cast on the earth. Prometheus then warned his son Deucalion as well as Deucalion's wife, Pyrrha. They were put in a wooden chest in which they lived until the flood, which lasted nine days and nights, subsided. The only parts of the earth that were left untouched by the flood were Mount Parnassus and Mount Olympus.
The chest landed on Mount Parnassus, and Deucalion and Pyrrha emerged to find that their world had been destroyed. There was enough food in the trunk to last until the water went away, and when it did, the two were horrified by the dead bodies of humans and animals that now littered the earth.
Deucalion and Pyrrha thanked the Gods for having been saved, and Zeus told them to cover their heads and throw the bones of their mother behind them. Pyrrha didn't understand, saying that they had only each other and that her mother hadn't come with them in the chest. Deucalion understood, and threw some stones behind him. The stones were Mother Earth's bones. From the stones Deucalion and Pyrrha threw, the next race of people were born and these people repopulated the Earth.
