Lord of Angmar has just left Hobbiton.

Tuor I don't quite follow your post. Obviously Morgoth and Sauron could not bestow immortality upon the orcs, but I believe the original thesis of this thread is that orcs would retain their immortality after having been corrupted from Elves by Morgoth. In other words:

1. Iluvatar grants the Elves immortality.
2. Morgoth turns the immortal Elves into Orcs.
3. Ergo, the Orcs are immortal.

This is not a theory that I personally subscribe to, I was merely clearing that up for you since I do not think you fully understood the discussion.
...where the instrument of intelligence is added to brute power and evil will, mankind is powerless in its own defence.
