Early man know about the natural fire of lightning and volcanoes long before he began to use fire himself. He
didn't know what fire was, but he had seen the damage
it could cause. Fire was powerful and dangerous, and
so he was frightened. Greek legend tells how
Prometheus stole fire from God Zeus, and brought it to
Earth for man to use. Zeus was very angry. He ordered
Prometheus to be chained to a rock. Every day an
eagle pecked out his liver, and every night his liver
grew again. So Prometheus suffered a terrible
punishment for his deed. The name "Prometheus"
means "the fore thinker". One Greek philosopher wrote
that all arts, all skills, men owe to the forethinker. By
this he meant that civilization is founded on fire and
using fire. When man eventually learned how to use
fire, he guarded it carefully. Some ancient peoples
worshiped fire as a goddess. Even when man learned
to make fire whenever he liked, often kept sacred fires
