    The amount of time and energy he put into creating that world is astonishing. He made up an entire universe with races, languages, Gods, etc.

    And neither of those were the wizards (Istari).

    Definitely Old Testament.

    Pippen did indeed have a comic scene in the books with the palantir. And the ball did indeed blaze in the books.
    Pretty sure not.. . I am gonna read it when I get home to verify though.

    I know. I didn't say that they were. I said that the High Men were the Dunedain.

    Now are they all part of the same story, the Silmarillian, The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings? I gather that the first one is just giving a background and theme, and The Hobbit perhaps introduces the characters? Then the Lord of the Rings is the actual adventures? Is that right?

    Sorry, the post you quoted in response to was about Gandalf being a man and I pointed out he wasn't.

    I've read The Hobbit 11 times, and LotR 3 times, but all in the 1980s and 1990s. Haven't read them since, though I've been considering reading them again. It's been too long.

    I tried, but couldn't get into it. Except for a couple chapters, just way too dry.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Yep. The Silmarillian sets it all up but in amazing detail. It outlines the Gods that created the world with music. Then those who chose to go into the world that became the Valar (worldly gods). It is kinda like a Bible. Morgoth fell out of favour due to greed and created the underworld of Balrogs. Shelob is another of these and of course Sauron is his right hand man. How the Elves were created with their "Doom" immortality. The creation later of the dwarves (by a Valar out of the rocks, or something) and men. Tens of thousands of years worth of history.

    Sort of, though the Hobbit was more of a lighter prequel to the Lord Of The Rings trilogy.
