God is God doesn't matter what you think, you are the reason 2000 years of science went down the toilet, if in this time when Mankind has been to the
moon, you still believe that someone who believes in god in their own way, really believes in satan, then you're trully a sheep.
And Tolkien really didn't give a crap about religion, so I guess he's a "satanist" too.
You also fail to realize one of the most crucial things in the book. Sauron's "flaming eye" can't see crap! He only sees what he wants to see,
and when Aragorn showed him that he did indeed exist, Sauron imediately turned his vision to making war against Gondor. When that happens, Sauron no
longer sees what is really going on (The hobbits getting close to mount. doom) but rather he sees his own victory, not doom.
You seem to think that his eye is "all seeing" but it is far from it, the eye wreathed in flame is simply sauron, his existance, all that is left of
him after his body died.
"I don't doubt that this has Masonic meaning. Please recall what terrors those doors led to and Gandalf's fear of what lay inside." -
Please recall that the "terror" inside, was defeated by Gandalf, and if you want to be particular, gandalf would make a perfect Senior Warden.
Also a little more masonic stuff in LotR, is the "east".
You say "Moria shows not to take Occult shortcuts" well I hate to break it to you but the Immortal elves are indicative of Freemasonry! HAH!
They are travelers from the west, they are immortal, wise, good, and moral, they are the best of all the peoples of middle earth.
They brought from the west to the east what all men seek, and once their job was done, they left those in the lands without, to use the knowledge they
gave them to defeat the last of their evils and woes.
And like-wise once Sauron was defeated, Man-kind, now the torch bearer in the new west, travels east to quell the last of all evil.
If that isn't masonic then knock me over with a feather.
I just don't see how the minor allusions to evil such as what's inside moria, and sauron's eye (both relatively irrelevant) have anything to do
with all the TRAVELLING done by the good in the books, to the east.
And while the Elves physically return to the west, what they brought (alluding to freemasonry) endures to end the last of evil (corruption and greed)
and then man takes it further east (rhun).
Before your theories of the eye and what's inside moria (remember the gates of moria are what allowed Gandalf to become the white, had gandalf not
gone into moria, he'd never achieve "perfection" and thus they'd never won, so moria was not a "lesson" but a trial, much as all masons take,
and if you think of it, this trial is much like the 3rd degree, in that Gandalf "dies" to be "raised" again, notice, raised, not ressurected, in
the books gandalf never "dies" but rather "changes" just as you do when you are raised to a master mason. Moria is a trial, where Gandalf becomes
a Master Mason.)
Well I guess since coming to that conclusion, you only really have one point in LotR that is unmasonic, and that's the eye, and it is not even all
seeing....your point is wearing thin
