noah and tolkien Can't Post

im not a religious person, but with the new darren aronovsky film of noah coming out soon its interesting to read about the flood and the long lifespans of the 'antediluvian' period humans.

of course there are parallels to numenor when you think of floods, but i always assumed that was a reference to atlantis, which of course it is aswell, but the notion that the period of time in the bible between adam and eve and noah when humans that could live up to a thousand years old reminds me of th elong lived lives of the numenoreans,

its also interesting to note that after the great flood in the bible that men started living a lot less, i think moses lived to a hundred and fifty.

this just reminded me that aragorn and the long lives of the men of the west may have been influenced by these biblical humans , and that the story of the flood may have added to the wonderful layers that make up the story of numenor and its people.

This is a serious journey, not a hobbit walking-party.
