in response to reader comment: Mr. Bayezid continues to offer opinions.

unfortunately, the only joke here is you. despite your crass efforts at deluding yourself, you have yet to state what stands as evidence of GOD's existence or power. i like it how you find a way around issues and pick a topic of your choosing to base your allegations and claims upon.

why would people read it? ill tell you why. people read the al quran for guidance. when they know their limits and know their place, they start taking instructions from GOD. a very natural behaviour indeed. unlike yours , where an individual sticks to a deluded conception where only the ego is god. ill try not to laugh so hard.

you sound even more ridiculous when you compare tolkiens work to quran. whereas tolkien writes a beautiful story with a moral, the quran is a set of messages from GOD. quran is not a literary work. it is a message. and i dont think youve read lord of the rings too well, becuse if you had, youd notice that the story enshrines values much akin to what is preached by religious scriptures worldwide. the focal point of tht story is that ring made by sauron to entice people in his way as it inspires greed and selfishness. such is the nature of too much power. it corrupts. no matter how wise you are, you have a limit. isnt that why gandalf never put on that ring ? finally it had to destroyed. o the moral is basically power corrupts and know your place. because ERU watches all. thats right. you can close your jaws now. tolkien had a concept of god in his stories similar to what people in may cultures believe. unlike the braindead fantasy literature of our time, tolkien mentioned the truth about ancient monotheism in his books. if u read the hobbit or the silmarillion youd know. written by tolkien .

and finally, the fact that you should know about is, tolkien wanted to create a fantasy parallel based on the events that took place during the time of the prophets when they were struggling to spread GOD's word to a dark world. he said so himself in his letters.
