Nobody comes even close to J.R.R. Tolkien. Even C.S. Lewis acknowledged that.


The rest are a bunch of nobodies. Cool


Kind regards from an incurable Tolkien geek...

Matthew, Mark, Luke,  St. Paul, and at the very top St. John the Divine,  the Book of Revealation.

Anybody ever read Charles Williams?

Roses always come with thorns. Sometimes, thorns first, sometimes roses first, and, sometimes, thorns outside, roses inside, sometimes roses outside, thorns inside.

Someone who dreams of drinking wine at a cheerful banquet may wake up crying the next morning. Someone who dreams of crying may go off the next morning to enjoy the sport of the hunt. When we are in the midst of a dream, we do not know it's a dream. Sometimes we may even try to interpret our dreams while we are dreaming, but then we awake and realize it was a dream. Only after one is greatly awakened does one realize that it was all a great dream, while the fool thinks that he is awake and presumptuously aware. Chuang Tzu

I really enjoy George MacDonald. I think CS Lewis put together an anthology about him and most know that he was inspired by him.  I dont know but I would love to read that anthology because everything Ive read by MacDonald I love. Very fairy-talish but symbolic and fun.  Very filmic stories in my view. Since I am a filmmaker I am interested in these things.

There is more linguistic, historical and archaeological evidence to back up the validity of the Bible than any other ancient or spiritual book.  In addition, the Gospels(Matthew, Mark and Luke) would stand up as evidence in any Western court of law today.

Actually, not.

Dark Energy. It can be found in the observable Universe. Found in ratios of 75% more than any other substance. Dark Energy. It can be found in religious extremists, in cheerleaders. To come to the conclusion that Dark signifies mean and malevolent would define 75% of the Universe as an evil force. Alternatively, to think that some cheerleaders don't have razors in their snatch is to be foolishly unarmed.

There is no historical or archaelogic evidend to support  the validity that Yeshua ben Marium was was the Son of God, that he performed miracles or that he intended to start a new religion.  


The earliest linguistic historical record was written decades after he was dead.   Even the evidence that does exist is a copy of the original record.  It is hearsay and would not stand up in any western court.
