Re: bombadil as eru -balin99

One reason I think that Tom cd NOT be Eru is that Tom clearly has limits (&quot;Tom is no master of black riders&quot while Eru does not. Of course, Eru cd self-impose his own limits in arda -- remember the old George Carlin joke &quot;If God is omnipotent, cd he make a rock so big that he himself cd not lift it?&quot; -- but . . .

In any case, I personally wd not like to think that the Supreme Being is so . . . unserious (shall we say) as Tom is.
