Myth Project Why do we have thunder?

I think we have thunder because every time Hercules (Zeusís son) runs away, Zeus would get mad and thunder would come down randomly. Later on Zeus found Hercules and they had the biggest argument ever about how Zeus was not a good father and he never got to have a mythical creature. The next day Zeus brought home a mythical creature for Hercules when he woke up Hercules found the creature and thanked his dad, Zeus for the creature. The creature could shoot thunder from his eyes; shoot water, split into 2 people, fly, and has elastic arms.
So if you see a thunderstorm or just thunder it means that Hercules ran away from home thought Zeus was a bad dad.
