English to Norwegian: Mythos by Steven Fry General field: Art/Literary Detailed field: Poetry & Literature
Source text - English These days the origin of the universe is explained by proposing a Big Bang, a single event that instantly brought into being all the matter from which everything and everyone are made.
The ancient Greeks had a different idea. They said that is all started not with a bang, but with chaos. Was Chaos a god - a divine being - or simply a state of nothingness? Or was Chaos, just as we would use the word today, a kind of terrible mess, like a teenager's room only worse?
Translation - Norwegian Disse dager mener man at universet begynte med et stort smell, en singulær hendelse som skapte materiet som alt og alle er laget av.
Antikkens grekere mente noe annet. De sa at alt begynte, ikke med et smell, men med kaos. Var Kaos en gud – en himmelsk skapning – eller ganske enkelt ingenting? Eller var Kaos slik vi bruker ordet idag, et type forferdelig rot, som rommet til en tenåring bare værre?
