Did the Emperor really have help from the Chaos Gods in creating the Primarchs? Or is it just a lie to corrupt loyalist marines?
The nature of the creation of the Primarchs is shrouded in mystery.
How they were created, what happened to the missing two, how they were scattered, etc etc.
I prefer to believe that the Emperor created them each as facets of himself and of humanity as a whole, and the forces of Chaos scattered them in order that they could be corrupted while being raised away from the Emperor's guidance.

Ah, because I was reading the novel, "False Gods", by Graham McNeill, (in the Horus Heresy series), and while Horus was having his "vision" in the Delphos on Davin, he has a flashback to the lab on Terra where the Primarchs are still in their tubes and is told that the Emperor stole some power from the Chaos Gods to make the Primarchs as powerful as they were. And after the Emperor did this, the Chaos Gods became his enemies, which is why he could never make any men as powerful as the Primarchs again.
Well if he made the Primarchs with Chaos power, then technically the space marines that are made from their gene seed could have chaos corruption from the beginning, and all the screening in the world would be useless.
I dont know if he had help from the chaos gods or if he stole their power or whatever. I do know that they apparently drew their power from the warp. Unwitiedly taking their strenght, intelegence, speed and so on blah blah. Everything that made the primarchs amazing was warp drawn.
Ok well the way I read it is that the Emperor made a pact with the gods inorder to have his power. He was then going to take control of the material realm and leave the gods to there realm and no one would interfear. However the emperor then made the primarchs with the goal of overthrowing chaos so they stepped in.
Well thats pretty much what the word bearers tell horus
Yes but the word bearers horrible stinkin liars. What they were saying to horus should probably be dismised. They would have said anything to get horus to side with the gods.
'Hey horus you know your long lost granny happens to be one of the chaos gods and if the emperor has his way then he'll kill her! You not gonna let him kill your gran are you!?!?!'.
Huh, how I wish the validity of the Word Bearers information wasn't in question. In Horus's visions, the Emperor seems to be a callous, treacherous man whose only really goal WAS his ultimate dominion over the galaxy.
I thought it was best shown when the Emperor appears in the lab and watches the Chaos storm that threatens the forming Primarchs and, it seems, lets them go without a second thought, and moves onto his other plans.
