The difference between Chinese and Greek mythology中西方神话的差异


The difference between Chinese and Greek mythology
As the origins of Oriental and Western civilizations, both of the two ancient civilized countries can trace their mythological roots in an unbroken line for thousands of years. The God of Greek are easy to fall in love with isomerism and lack of ethic. Taking Zeus for an example, he often cajoles the beautiful women. He leaves thousands of romantic debts everywhere, from Olympus to the human life. The Gods from Olympus indulge their selfish desire. Without the conception of ethic, they can fall in love with their good friends even their relatives. In contrast, the Chinese ancient Gods are the one without lust. They follow rules docilely. The God of China are grand and holy. They never envy or do harm to human beings. They are discreet in speech and manner, never cajolery mankind, can't even envy and injure mankind .Nevertheless the god of Greek act arbitraily without principles. In Greek mythology , gods look more human like, outpouring their laical natural emotion, such as love , hate, anger, desire, envy etc. “The Pandora’s box “ is a good example to explain that Zeus uses Pandora to retaliate the human beings. When Pandora opens the door, all the bad things fly away, making the world becomes the gloomy abysm. Even though, he is not satisfied. Then he launchs flood to destroy the world. In all: The most fundamental difference between Chinese and Greek mythologies is that the Chinese gods are made more divine while the Greek gods look more human like.

因为起源东方和西方文明,两个古老文明的国家可以追踪他们的神话的根在一个完整的线数千年。

神的希腊很容易爱上异构和缺乏道德。以宙斯为例,他经常劝导的美丽的女人。他留下了数以千计的浪漫 的债务无处不在,从奥林匹斯山上的人的生活。从奥林匹斯的神放纵自己的私欲。没有概念,伦理,他们 会爱上自己的好朋友,甚至是他们的亲戚。相比之下,中国古代的神是一个没有欲望。他们遵循循规蹈矩。

上帝是中国的大和圣。他们从不嫉妒或危害人类。他们是不苟言笑,不会诱骗人类,甚至不嫉妒和伤害人 类。然而神希腊任意无原则的行为。在希腊神话中,神看起来更像人类,他们的世俗的自然情感的流露, 如爱,恨,愤怒,欲望,嫉妒等。”潘多拉之盒”是一个很好的例子来说明宙斯使用潘多拉报复人类。当潘 多拉打开门,所有坏的东西飞起来,使世界变得阴郁的深渊。尽管如此,他还是不满足。然后他发动洪水 毁灭世界。

在所有的:最根本的区别是,中国神话与希腊神话中神更为神圣的希腊神则看起来更像人类。
