Lesson from the Shenzhen Daily:
http://szdaily.sznews.com/html/2009-02/03/content_503144.htm

Practice the conversation; study the vocabulary; then discuss the questions with a friend in English.

Questions:
1. How could a human write about "the origin of the gods"?
2. Look at the names Ouranos, Gaia, and Okeanos. What do they mean? How important are these things as natural phenomena?
3. Why would the Titan in charge of fresh-water springs be called "grandmother" or "nurse"? How important is she?
