tifo_gcs has just left Hobbiton.

I agree with Davem that the elves cause a problem given their undying nature. even when they die, they don't really leave the world, they just get "confined to quarters." If one is to draw religious inferences into Lord Of The Rings, I believe that Elves should be akin to Angels. After all, Elrond and Galadriel are two of the most powerful actors behind the scenes, and angels are supposed to be God's messengers to earth, to tell people what to say an do, if you believe in christianity.
Who's to say that the Elrond and Galadriel weren't meant to remain in Middle Earth to guide Frodo and the rest of Middle Earth so that Sauron would be defeated?
