My mind writes in mysterious ways [In reply to] Can't Post

Although Aragorn was a direct descendant of Elros wouldn't his Elvish blood and his Maiar blood have pretty much vanished after some 60 generations?
Therefore we must ask what is pure (or "purer") Numenorean stock at the time of the WOR? Practically non-existent I would think
------------------------
I believe my statement above is a little obtuse.
Even though Aragorn was descended from Elros, then Elendil and Isildur (The Surviving Faithful) etc. Whether we call them Faithful, Numenoreans, or Dunedain they were men. What I really wanted to attempt to say was that after so many generations the Elvish and Maiar blood would be nil, as I assume there were few if any Man/Elf marraiges after the fall of Numenor.

So Aragorn's and his ilk would have small chance of having any Elvish qualities such as telepathy.

From World's End then he turned away,
and yearned again to find afar .
his home through shadows journeying,
and burning as an island star . . .

-Bilbo Baggins
