24 Sep The Legend of Fire
With the communion and warmth that fire brings, there is bound to be a myth on how humans were blessed with the gift of fire.
According to Ancient Greek mythology, fire was stolen from the gods and given to mankind by a sneaky son-of-a-Titan named Prometheus. For the Sanema-Yanomami Indians, the story is that back then, people ate their food raw food because they did not have the secret of fire. Iwarame, the caiman, was the only one who had fire. Iwarame, who was also known as Iwa, spent the whole day in the water hunting but he prepared his food in the cave where he slept. In the Ekoi mythology from East Africa, the story is, after Obassi Osaw, a creator god, refused to give fire to humanity, a boy stole it and taught humanity how to use it.
Whichever myth makes the most sense to you, it is a universal truth that fire has indeed transformed the manner in which humanity has evolved.
