Gaia warned Zeus that his son by Metis would overthrow him, so he ate her and would give birth to to the god himself. Instead it was Athena, and she came out through his head. Cheesy (He seems to have a habit of giving birth... Cheesy)

However, it wasn't an end-of-the-world prophecy. It was a you're-going-to-get-the-"hey dad, c'mere!"-treatment-from-your-son. Cheesy I don't believe there is any sort of apocalypse prophecy for the Greeks. Battles like Ragnarok for the Greeks already occurred between the Olympians and the Titans (and then later the Giants) in the Titanomachy and the Gigantomachy. But once again, those were more for the right to rule the world, rather than destroying it entirely.

But.. I don't think there is a Greek equivalent at all. :S

Thanks! I didn't think there was one...there is some mention of when Humans will be destroyed, or at the least forsaken by the Gods and Goddesses, in what I think is Hesiod's Works and Days. I don't have a problem with no end of the world!  Grin

Perseverence--The courage to ignore the obvious wisdom of turning back.

Wishes--When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the Earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wished for. Unless it's death by meteor.

Whining--If you expect to score points by whining, join a European soccer team.
----Demotivation posters.
