The Greek gods, such as Zeus and Apollo, were often depicted in human form exhibiting human traits. Anthropomorphism in this case is referred to as anthropotheism. The Greek Gods held all kinds of jealousies, infighting and betrayal that one finds in the human world. They had hierarchies, alliances and numerous affairs of the heart. In many ways they were merely a reflection of the human world except in the Godly realm.

Yes some of them are human

Greek gods are more unlike humans because gods have all of these powers around the world.Humans don't have powers and if an human did have powers that mean that person might be a god and don't know or it might be somthing wrong with that person then.So that is my answer.

I believe that Greek gods are more similar to humans than different because the only difference is that gods have divine powers and humans dont. other wise, god and humans are the same. gods had feelings, they pllotted revenge, they had bodies and had jealousy and etc. They all had feelings that us humans experience as well
