I think you are referring to a passage i Valaquenta. But it is only said that Noldor did not utter his name. We know from Akallabeth that Men worshipped Melkor.

This is very strange. Arcturus is never in the low south. It cannot be Aldebaran or Betelgeuse, because they have climbed quite high in the winter sky. Mars doesn't really fit either; it can only be...

The reason Thangorodrim and the Iron mountains were not on the Silmarillion map was because CT was not sure exactly where to place them. The source map he used (HoME V) didn't agree with the...

Tolkien wrote Old English versions of the Silmarillion. There Silmarils are 'Eorclanstans'. And from this the word 'Arkenstone' is derived according to Christopher Tolkien in HoME 4. So I think it is...

The Ambarkanta map in which the sea of Helcar is located where mordor is located in the later maps is from 1930! At that time there were no Hobbits, no ring, no Mordor. In UT it is stated that the...

The Numenorian's map is wrong. The scales of the LotR an the Silmarillion maps are different. You have to scale down the Beleriand map so that it matches the LotR map. Harlindon is essentially...

Is really Dior 100% man? In that case the marriage Dior-Nimloth (or Lindis) would be the fourth union between elves and men. Where is it mentioned that he is a man? Arwen parents were elves and she...

Elronds sons went to Rhosgobel but Radagast was not there. That could mean that they intended to inform him about the situation and perhaps get some news from him. I think the council believed he was...

Gandalf had to fight the balrog for several days even though he had an elven ring. I don't think Galadriel's ring would been enough to keep the Balrog out of Lorien. Rembember the Orcs that followed...

Findegil: Gildor cannot be Finrod's son after reincarnation because he is an exile. He wouldn't be that if he came to Middle-Earth in the second age.
