Why did Prometheus come down to give us knowledge? Zeus didn't want him to do this. Prometheus was sent into outer darkness for his sin.
For thousands of years, people understood that they should be thankful to Prometheus. He brought the fire, he brought the light, he brought the knowledge that humanity needed to rise above the level of dirt.
I doubt kids today ever hear about Prometheus. But they should.
