twinkle has just left Hobbiton.

good point gildor....
i guess if i want to get really obvious i'll just go with the fact that a story without "bad guys" makes for less of a good story....
just the fact that Ilúvatar grew angry at Melkor's doings made me wonder as to why he did not just root out the bad apple....
i figure if pain and suffering can be prevented, why not do so?
is it useless then to wonder at the motivation and designs of gods? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
maybe so.....but then i have an inquisitive nature and want detailed explanations...
it still is a strange concept to me to create something and then not intervene to help when things go awry....
but then i'm not a god and that's most likely for the best [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

“For if joyful is the fountain that rises in the sun, its springs are in the wells of sorrow unfathomable at the foundations of the Earth.”
