pikasoccer has a spectacular aura about

Default Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief Question

Did anyone else catch this?

OK, so Percy and Annabeth fall in love.

Athena is Zeus' daughter. Annabeth is Athena's daughter, so Zeus is Annabeth's grandfather.

Percy is Poseidon's son. Poseidon is Zeus' brother, and Annabeth is Poseidon's niece.

So, wouldn't Percy and Annabeth be second cousins? That's kind of weird that they fell in love, since they share the same blood.

In The Demigod Files, Percy says that since gods don't really have DNA (I mean, Zeus is married to his sister and Hades is married to his niece) it doesn't matter that two demigods fall in love, as long as they're not in the same cabin, because that would just be awkward.

Like Ratty said, Demi-gods don't really have...god DNA. Annabeth and Percy aren't related.

There is actually a lot of incest in Greek mythology...we just read an ancient Greek play in English class ("Antigone" by Sophocles) and there was a man named Oedipus who married his mother and had four children with her. So I'd think that second cousins would be pretty good, considering what it could be, ya know? And anyway, ratty's right.

That was an accident, though. They didn't actually know. And when they found out... well...

Gods always seem to marry their siblings in mythology, because at the beginning of creation there really isn't anyone else to marry. xD

Well, yeah...but it's still his mother, even if they didn't know! And it's just simply...icky. Haha, true about the gods though. The Bible has always confused me because supposedly Adam and Eve were the first two people, so how everyone in the Bible ends up existing ... I don't really want to think about it.

Not to mention the fact that everyone after the Flood is descended from Noah's sons... But I'm not really a strong believer (I'm Jewish), so...

Oh, I don't think anyone I know is really a strong believer, except probably the Jesuits at school.

Default Re: Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief Question

I've thought about that before also. Ratty is right
Another thing is this: Beckendorf and Silena dated right? Well, their godly parents are married to each other... I just thought that was kind of weird...

People really use to do that. But if you look at it the way some people do about the first few people on earth. They had kids who had kids with each other (and that is for real). It isn't that weird, they use to do it all the time. I actually learned about the gods last year and learned why they did that.
