I believe Tolkien decided to go with the 'recreated' theory as opposed to the 'reborn' theory. I don't see Finarfin ruling over his literal father bascially raised from the dead.

Why is this so important? The Silm was not published by JRR, it is Chris' book. I should think that the Silmarillion should be considered as just another book in the HoME series.

As far as the later concepts go, Tolkien was working on two Myths. One myth was the incorrect myth (flat earth which includes the Silmarillion's version of the Sun and Moon) and the round earth myth...

Should Tolkien's statement about all star, the Earth, Sun and Moon being created by Eru at the beginning be taken into consideration when dealing with the star of Earendil?

This is exactly why I don't believe Feanor could ever be rehoused. He still harboured malice against others.

In the case of the Orcs, Melkor's influence was very great. It was so great that if Orcs did have fear, that a 'good' orc has never been recorded.

It seems to me that you believe there is some sort of punishment involved here. As far as I know, there is no punishment that Eru passes upon those who follow the evil path. Evil...

Since both Sindar and Avari are Moriquendi, I'd say they were Moriquendi. As far as I know, the only way Mirkwood could contain Calaquendi would be if some of the Noldor came with the Sindar.

I must disagree. An incarnate being has both a fea (soul) and hroa(body). According to Tolkien, the hroa does have an effect upon the fea, as I quoted a couple of times earlier in this thread.

Unfinished Tales is the place to find the most information on the Istari. You can find it in paper back for less than 10 bucks.

Heck, you might even find it in your local library for free!

I have supported my case with quotes from you, which you have not retracted. Yes, I believe this is well past the point of agreeing to disagree.
