User talk:Bolly Ottihw
Conservapedia:Listing the Earth's most pressing needs in urgent order of fixing
Mr. Bolly, do you mind if I move you & Philip R.'s discussion to the talk page? I'll leave your "list" that started it on the main page, but also copy it as the start of the discussion, and I will insert a "see talk" link after it.
I will only do this if you both say it's ok.
I am not trying to censor at all, I just want to keep the main page a bunch of people's lists. Human 12:07, 12 May 2007 (EDT)
- Yeh thats fine, I don't have a problem with that at all. Thanks for asking. Bolly Ottihw 13:43, 13 May 2007
- I just did it. I thought it only proper to ask... Human 17:27, 13 May 2007 (EDT)
Edit your UserPage
I mean this in the nicest way, but I suggest you edit your user page because what you've written makes atheists (and yourself) look like morons.
Your page suggests that Rivendell is as real as Judeah and that the Fellowship of the Ring is as realistic as the 12 Disciples. You may or may not believe that Jesus performed miracles, but it's silly to think that Jesus is as real as Frodo. In other words, your comparison between the Bible and the Lord of the Rings is silly because the Bible refers to specific historical places and personages. You may disagree with the philosophy or claims of the Bible but no one, most especially J.R.R. Tolkien or his heirs, would equivocate between the Bible and the Lord of the Rings.
If you want to make the argument that the Bible is poppycock, it's more fair to compare Greek Mythology to the Bible. Afterall, Mt. Olympus is a real place, but we know that the Greek gods don't hold court on top of that mountain. This will make the point that you are trying to make, without implying that you are a moron.

- I understand the point you're making, however I think you may have misunderstood what I meant. I meant that it was as accurate a guide to history, as in you may as well replace all names and dates with the Silmarillion dates as they are just as likely to be true. I don't mean that they are as geographically accurate because the Bible is set on Earth but the Silmarillion is set on another world. If you would like a different example, how about Harry Potter? It is set on our Earth however the events are just as likely and accurate as most of the Bible. Bolly Ottihw 20:50, 14 June 2007
