The director in "The Truman Show", that Jim Carry movie.
Belief .. is the insistence that the truth is what one would .. wish it to be. The believer will open his mind to the truth on the condition that it fits in with his preconceived ideas and wishes. 


Faith, on the other hand, is an unreserved opening of the mind to the truth, whatever it may turn out to be.

True that, at least the Tooth Fairy gives you something in return for your belief and sacrifical offerings. When was the last time god ever did anything for anyone?

The moon was actually built on a secret Hollywood sound stage, and resides there to this day.

Well it ain't operational yet!
I am not impressed with Hollywood's lack of progress!

RE: The moon's formation
*sigh* Such usually bright people, and I have to educate you. Pay heed:

When Morgoth and Ungoliant destroyed the Two Trees, the tears of Nienna caused the withered trees to produce a single fruit and a single flower. The last fruit of Laurelin was placed in a vessel guided by Maia Arian and became the sun. The last flower of Telperion was placed in a similar vessel and became the moon. This vessel was guided by another Maia (Tilion). But Tilion was erratic and guided the moon-vessel in a haphazard fashion. This was because he was in love with Arian, but - because of her great heat - could not reach her. He came perilously close a few times, and is marred because of it. Tilion's erratic path and his love for Arian explains why the sun is seen every day, but the moos isn't, and why both can sometimes be seen in the sky at the same time.

And enough about tides. Those are cause by Ulmo and Osse, and that's a completely different story. So there.

I admire Boru.


If you're going to bullshit dazzle the reader, at least have the decency to put the effort into it! Well done.
By the end, I was emotionally attached and actually cared about the characters! A solid 7/10.

You listening theists?

I stole that. Funny, I thought someone would have picked up on it.
