One thing I would like to point out is that there was no such thing as the elf-dwarf wars. Sure, there was mistrust between the two races and they didn't get along too well, but there was no real...

Good point about humans Olorin. Humans destroy nature yet there are no accounts of wars between Elves and Men.

It seems to me that your view of Elves is not consistant with Tolkien's books. Does Eol the Dark elf ring a bell? He worked with metals. The Noldor were excellent metal workers too. These Elves...

But those examples don't have anything to do with Elf/Dwarf relations. Elves used trees too. It is true that Elves had the better relationship with nature, but that does not mean that it was a...

But Men believe that death was a punishment for Men following Morgoth instead of Eru. Tolkien refered to this as Man's fall.

I've recently come to the conclusion that sent back meant sent back into Ea. In other words, Gandalf did not stay in Blessed Lands. He later left Ea all together.

I don't know about that Sharku. It is true that Gandalf's death did lower his power quite a bit and it would take a long time for him to rebuild on his own. Yet this would take a long time and...

Looking at the other side of the coin, we do have a good guy who reaps nothing but sorrow, Turin.

Melian did nothing wrong, but she definitely suffered.

It is possible that some of the Nazgul...

Thats the reason of my question. Even though the girdle that protected Lorien guarded it against all evil, why was it shutting off Lorien of all the other good people in M.E.?

Yes, according to Morgoth's Ring, the Dwarf fathers' bodies are kept under special care because from time to time their spirits return and the fathers awaken from death.

Does anyone know a quote that says all Elven blades of the first age would shine when they were around Orcs?

I've seen it once, but there was no reference given.

Why do you make that assumption? It seems to me that Tolkien likes to throw twists and turns into his stories. It makes it a more believable history/mythology.

If one puts much stock in Tolkien's later writings, then one will come to the conclusion that almost all elves that die are given new bodies.

Could the W-K's body have survived all those years without the spell?

If not, then why didn't Merry's stab kill him in itself?
