      what did you expect as a soulless homosexual who can't appreciate art for what it is rather than for what you want it to be?

      Fun Fact: there's not a single church or temple of any kind dedicated to Eru. Only Melkor has those. Only Melkor demands worship and blood sacrifices.

      Melkor = Yahweh

        Tolkien was more deeply rooted and invested in real world history, culture and language than you will ever be. You just want fairytales to play with so you don't have to confront life.

          He was an academic. It was his job to know.

      Yeah, books Middle Earth is pretty miserable outside the Shire. Even after the return of the king it's still on the long, gradual path to decay. Not something I want to escape into by any means.

    You're always escaping reality.
    Even now.
    So I guess reality includes escapes.
