How can you make people like the Greek God Cronus?
You can't force people to like things. Cronus was not the one who created people. It was Prometheus who created life-forms in the image of Zeus and Hera. He then added a little bit of Chaos to make them come to life and to stay living.

Greek gods were capricous beings. They were inclined to argue and fuss with each other just as much as with humans. Sometimes they changed humans into animal form. Zeus often mated with humans, and sometimes they caused crops to wither( as in the case of Persephone, captured by Pluto(god of the un…derworld who refused to let her leave Hades) so her Mother Persephone(goddess of the Harvest) simply stopped the harvest and nothing grew till the people got frantic, and Zeus had to settle the matter.

There are twelve main gods. Each one looks different. And there are many different depictions of each one.
I dont know, but I thought I should point out that cronus is a titan, not a god.
The harvest, nature and agriculture; similar to the Roman Saturn. He should not be confused with Chronos, the personification (not god) of time.
He was the king of the Titans and ruler of the world in Greek mythology before Zeus (his own son) overthrew him. The harvest, nature and agriculture; similar to the Roman Saturn. He should not be confused with Chronos, the personification (not god) of time. Cronus was a Titan, born from the pr…imordial deities, Gaia and Ouranos. He castrated and overthrew his father with his sickle, which led to his worship as a harvest god, associated with crops and nature. He was father of Zeus, Hades and Poseidon. (MORE)
If you mean what are the Greek gods in planet names, or the Roman version of them then they are: Zeus--Jupiter Poseidon--Neptune Hades--Pluto Aphrodite--Venus Ares--Mars Hermes--Mercury Kronos (Chronus)--Saturn (Kronos was not a god. He was a Titan.) And the other roman versions of the gods were: … Artemis--Diana Hephaestus--Vulcan Apollo--Apollo Hestia--Vesta Athena--Minerva (MORE)

Cronus was not god of anything. He was a titan,father of the main gods:Zeus,Poseidon,Hera,Demeter,Hades,and Athena.
Cronus is not a god but a titan and father the the 6 original Olympians (who were Hestia, Hades, Demeter, Poseidon, Hera , and Zeus) Cronus was the titan of time.
greek gods are not like humans, humans are like greek gods. the difference is that e are mortal and they are immortal. they only have powers because the take care of their section of the earth.
Put the word "Cronus" into Google Images search. You will find many artists' depictions of Cronus. Too bad we can't put images here....
Cronos (called Saturn by the Romans), the last born to Gaia, takes revenge upon Ouranos, who hates all his children with a vengeance. With a sickle, given to him by Gaia he attacks his father and castrates him. Cronos throws the severed genitals into the sea, and from the foam Aphrodite was born. Cr…onos cast his brothers and sisters in the Tartaros, except for Rhea, who he took for his wife. The children of the Titans he mostly ignored, especially those he though useful, like Helios and Atlas, whom he told to hold up the sky.. Cronos, now got a little nervous that one day one of his children would do the same to him, so decided to devour each and every one of them. Rhea, his sister and wife, contrived to hide one of them. Instead of feeding thing Cronos the baby, she feeds him a stone. Zeus is hidden on the isle of Crete, where he's fed by nymphs and his guards protect him from being found or heard. From Crete he returns to overthrow Cronos.. Together with his mother Rhea, Zeus conspires to feed Cronos a nasty dose of medicine, that makes him so sick, he throws up. First the stone, which can still be found at Delphi and then his older children, Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades and Poseidon. These had grown inside their father and qucikly followed Zeus their brother down to Earth.. Zeus and Cronos fought for 10 years. Prometheus first fought on Cronos side, but Cronos did not heed his advice to set free his brothers and sisters, the Titans. Zeus welcomed him and set free the Cyclops, who thanked him and give Zeus Lightning and Thunder. To Hades they give the Helm of Invisibility and Poseidon was gifted with a trident. Next Zeus liberated the Hundred-handed monsters, who could throw one hundred rocks at Cronos in one throw. (MORE)
The greek god Apollo is the god of animal life and of the harvest. He carries a magic staff that controls the animals and helps plants to grow. When he plays his magical flute, all of the animals flock to him. He was especially worshipped in the city of Apolloniantis.
Cronus was not a God, per se but was a Titan, born from the primordial deities, Gaia and Ouranos. He castrated and overthrew his father with his sickle, which led to his worship as a harvest god, associated with crops and nature.
\nHe was the messenger of Zeus, so he probably was like Zeus on that point...\nhe really didn't like that guy with 100 eyes.
Cronus was not a god at all, He was the king of the titans and ruler of the world in Greek mythology before Zeus (his own son) overthrew him.
Zeus was the strongest of Greek gods. He had many lovers. Hecheated on his wifw/sister Hera.
They had the charateristics of regular humans but they could control what their powers were. And they were very amorous and funny.
Cronus: Some would argue that Cronus is the same as Chronos, which would give us chronic, chronicle, and most words with that beginning. However, these are actually two distinct characters. Gaea/Gaia: The original supercontinent, Pangaea, "pan"- all, "gaea"- earth Eros: the only one that leaps… to mind is "erotic" Chaos: "chaos", come to mean "turbulence" although it was originally "void" or "emptiness" (MORE)
Cronus is not the greek god of Saturn, Saturn is his Roman name. As for why the Romans named him Saturn, I don't know.
They live in luxury The have many stories to tell they sure know how to party Some of them are really mean Some of them are nice Some are beautiful Some are ugly All are awesome
The Greeks believed that a god or goddess was a significant being of ultimate power and will.
the greek gods were nice but they sometimes were not good people appolo was once mean and crule to his other gods but now he is the goddess of love ! HE LEARNED
Let's start by saying he wasn't a god. Charon was the person who ferried souls across the river Styx. He's may or may not be dead, he is just a guy that was selected to his duties.
People like Apollo/Greek god because Apollo is the god of sun,music,poetry,archery,medicine,and making people ill,or bringing people back to life.
a confusing question! Cronos / Cronus / Kronos is the greek god who cut off his fathers genitals and ruled in what's called 'the golden age' a time of complete serenity on earth. he was then foretold a prophecy that would come true - that he would be overthrown by one of his sons. therefore every… time his wife Reha would give birth he would eat the child! However Rhea was (obviously) upset by this and therefore hid one of her children (Zeus) on the island, Crete and instead gave Cronos a stone wrapped in swaddling to swallow instead. when Zeus was older he forced his father to bring back up his brothers and sisters (the Olympians) and then waged war against his father and the Titans. Zeus won and after many years of banishment to the underworld Cronos was allowed to rule over Elysian Islands, home of the blessed dead. Chronos is the first god (a three headed serpent / bull / serpent who with the help of his mate the goddess of necessity (also a snake) wrapped around the earth and created the separation of the sky and land and also created eternity/ time. there is much confusion about whether or not Cronos and Chronos are the same - different sites and books say different things however i haven't heard much about Cronus using his power over time in any myths so i would say that Cronos and Chronos were different Gods although the meaning of Cronos literally translates as 'time'... to be honest i would stay safe and say that they are different gods - that's what i would say anyway! actualy that is not true CHRONUS was the keeper of time and the king of the titans and was the same as CRONUS (MORE)
Kronos is not a greek god he is a titan lord. He is the god of time
Hephaestus is the black smith god but he invented mortals or people from mud and water.
In the modern day, there are aspects of people that seem to share the characteristics of some of his god-hood but it is based on individual interpretation of the myths that Apollo is in.
Zeus ----- The Greeks had many gods, most notably Zeus. The ancient Greek word for "god" was "theos".
The greek god Cronus lived on the top of mount Olympus with his brothers and sisters including his sister Rhea which was also his wife who he had six kids with but Cronus swallowed them all except for Zeus which Rhea hid so Cronus couldn't swallow him and when Zeus was older he killed Cronus saved h…is siblings and won the kingdom! (MORE)
They were father and son. but by the way cronus was a titian not a god.
Cronus was the Titan god of time and the ages, especially time where regarded as destructive and all-devouring. He is the father of Zeus.
Yes they did because many of them workshiped them. But they are not real so bye
Most Greek citizens worshiped the gods and goddeses in a temple where each god or goddess had his or her own oracle. Delphi was the most famous oracle, being Appolos.
His symbol is his scythe, the one that chopped Ouranos to pieces. He also has his golden eyes, which are sometimes considered his symbol.
Most Greek Gods were flawed, making them very human-like. For example one of the most famous Greek gods, Zeus,cheated on his wife to many times to count. Aphrodite, the most gorgeous of the gods and goddesses, was very fickle in love. People back then wanted reason for action, so say when a person b…ack then can't keep a good relationship, they wouldn't want to think of it as something bad about themselves so they had Greek gods and goddesses to to make it possibly a good thing. A person like that might relate themselves to Aphrodite. Hope this wasn't to confusing. Luv the question! (MORE)
Hades is King of the Underworld and the Dead; husband of Persephone, goddess of spring.
The Greeks did not exactly like the gods, they just thought that it was necessary to pray to them for rain, food, calm seas, etc.
Heracles was a demigod, born from a mortal mother, Alcmena and the almighty king of the gods, Zeus. Heracles was believed to have inhuman strength, courage and ingenuity. He accomplished 12 tasks set for him by King Eurystheus (who had claimed Heracles' throne) which became know as the Twelve Labors… of Heracles. He was hated by Zeus' wife, Hera and she tormented him, driving him mad enough to kill his and Megara's (his wife) children and later his best friend, Iphitus, as revenge for her husband's infidelities.

The parents of Cronus and Rhea are the same as they are brother andsister, Gaea (Earth) was thier mother and Ouranos (Heaven) thierfather.
Well.. if you mean like as in worship and sacrifice all there best animals than yes, they did like him. EPIC
Kronos didn't have a "personality" the way you are thinking of. He was the personification of the heavens, so he was made with a lofty spirit. You could say he was fearful and greedy, since he didn't want to be usurped by his children the way he usurped his own father.
Cronus was not a Roman god. Cronus is the Latinization of the Greek name Kronos . The Roman counterpart to Cronus was Saturnus or simply, Saturn. Saturn was the Roman god of the Harvest and king of the Titans. After his defeat at the hands of his son, Jupiter, he was exiled to the Italian Penins…ula, where he ruled the men there during a Golden Age. (MORE)
More or less. Although Saturnus is viewed differently in Rome than Kronos was in Greece. In fact, he was still widely worshiped along with the Olympians.
Greek gods and goddesses could change their appearances from human (old, young, hair color - exc.) to animals (cows, swans, fly, goat).
Well, the Greek gods and goddess don't just reflect the Greeks they reflect human nature in ways... The Greek gods have quarrel's, argument's, fights, affairs, jealousy issues and lots more. In ways they were basically humans with godlike abilities. I hope I answered your question. :)
greek people adored the gods and they say that depending on how much they adore them the gods helped them.
Cronus had three sons (Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon) and three daughters (Demeter, Hera, and Hestia). Hades was also known as Pluto
In Greek mythology, it is said that Cronus (or Cronos or Kronos), who is actually a Titan, not a god, was chopped to pieces with his own scythe by his son Zeus, and cast into Tartarus. Zeus then took his throne to rule the gods.
