What does this excerpt most suggest about the beliefs of the ancient greeks? a: they believed that nature’s strength was wholly uncontrollable. b: they believed that nature’s wrath could never be overcome. c: they believed that the gods were frequently unfair in their actions. d: they believed that the gods often punished people for acting badly.
The answer is D. In Greek mythology, it was often believed that when natural disasters occurred, it was the gods punishing that community. The Greek gods would 'smite' those that acted poorly, often resulting in death or major industry. Some acts that may result in punishment include murder, gluttony, adultery, gambling, to name a few. In ancient Greece, nature was believed to be the gods at work, so A is incorrect as they believed the gods were in control of nature. B and C are also incorrect because they felt if they acted in the correct manner, they could avoid the gods wrath.
D. They believed that the gods often punished people for acting badly
Where is the question?
