Wants to get rid of mortals
Honey wake up! There is going to be a flood.
Zeus the god of the sky was pissed at everyone in Salmonea because they followed and believed their king Salmoneus so he killed most of them.
He was so done with humans so he gathered all the gods together and they reached an agreement to have a flood so get rid of mortals.
Somehow the titan Prometheus found out about the plan and warned his son Deucalion the king of Thessaly in a dream
So Deucalion and his wife Pyrrha pack and they set off and they used the wooden chest as a life preserver. They survived the huge flood.
They found Zeus at Olympus and he was very pleased that they survived. He was so pleased he declared there will no longer be any floods. They wanted to know how to repopulate and they were told to go to the Orcale of Delphi
They were told to throw the bones of their mother as they god and Pyrrha saw it as a metaphor for Mother Earth. So they tossed rocks behind them and as they tossed them they turned into humans and the world was repopulating.
