    Do you believe in Frodo?

    Many ancient (~70 years) texts held sacred by millions mention this character and his amazing exploits. Some claim he is a fictional character, but perhaps there are possibly others who disagree with them, just as in debates about the Bible. Perhaps Frodo Baggins really lived, and there might be some historical truth to the events depicted in the Lord of The Rings. If someone has faith to that effect, who are you to deny their heartfelt beliefs? Fossilized plant matter found on a mountain in Eastern Europe may, some may say, be the remains of the lambas bread Frodo and Samwise Gamgee were reputed to have taken with them on their trip to Mordor. How can you argue with evidence like that? So, do you believe in Frodo as depicted in the Tolkien Gospels?

    I know I do. Let's go conquer Gondor... which I'll interpret as being Iran... in his honor.

    Sorry to dissapoint you, but Gondor is in Germany.

    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    You obviously do not get the TLC channel or animal planet channel.TLC has the smurfs(Little people Big World), the Keebler elves(Little Chocolatiers),Hobbits in love(The Little Couple). Animal planet has that Hobbits and pit bulls show,although I could be wrong that could the lolly-pop guild and pit bulls.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Not bad, though Mordor was positioned in the south, not the east.

    Gondor was represented as Greece, in terms of its geography, basic architecture, and overall importance to Middle-Earth's developing civilization. It was highly mountainous, but with forests, built cities of stone, enjoyed significant naval power and explored , spread its culture throughout Middle-Earth (Europe), and defended the continent from eastern forces (aka, the Persian Wars). Ancient Greece on all points. Also, the connection with Atlantis (aka, Numenor) is Greek-ish in character.

    Arnor (including the Shire) was the British Isles. Also solidly so. The elves leaving from the Grey Havens for the Undying Lands is a clear echo of Arthur and Avalon.

    The lands covered in The Hobbit were Scandinavia and northern Germany. The dwarves, longboats, and portrayal of woodland elves were sort of a giveaway, not to mention its relation to Arnor/Shire.

    Rohan is southern Germany, or rather, the largest of a plurality of Celtic nations that would later become Germany.

    Mordor was basically Asia Minor, and the distant lands from whom it attracted "Wicked Men" were Africa and more distant parts of Asia.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Tolkien was a Christian. Your said "Tolkien Scriptures" are fiction that mirror Christian truths
