    If you've never seen the original with Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver, Rick Moranis, etc you should CL. It's pretty epic.

    'I' think this is the biggest literary discovery since Troy was unearthed, and no one else seems to care.

    It's a fictional story. Tolkien based it off of a lot of real world myths and legends, which is why there may be "parallels" to Middle Earth. But Middle Earth, as described in LOTR, does not and has never existed.

    You can find a list of what influenced Tolkien to write his stories, here.

    As I've noted...I found ALL of the sites, where they should be on corresponding modern maps.

    Tolkien HID this fact behind the hidden message on the compass.

    Obviously you believe strongly in what you believe that you have discovered kingoftheamericas and others here believe strongly in what they believe based on their study of Tolkien's writings regarding Middle Earth. I doubt either side will change their minds at this point.

    Have you posted your findings on any other Tolkien website/blog? I'm not saying go away, those who know me know I would never say that. I'm just saying you may find more interest in your discovery there.

    Best wishes.

    I'm trying to post, tweet, imgur, facebook, message, and e-mail anyone with elf ears...

    I don't 'believe' I found Middle Earth. I know it.

    People believed Troy was myth once too.

    Not to be argumentative, but you DID say two different things there.

    You claim it's fiction, but then say (and provide a link) that he sourced old world legends and myths...?

    I'm telling you he researched and then re-told a story who's world, names and locations of places ARE absolutely real. I'll post more if you'd like?

    Did you see this-[​IMG]

    Yes, he sourced old world legends and myths. Legends and myths are fictional stories used to explain something that people didn't understand. For example, Aurora was a Roman goddess of dawn. Aurora tragically lost her son and each day, her sorrowful tears would become the morning dew. This myth was used to explain why there was morning dew every morning. Obviously Aurora didn't actually exist but the Romans used this story to explain something they didn't understand.

    Go read "Heroes and Hero Worship," then let's talk again.

    You are in over your head, and I don't drown puppies, ...anymore.

    Nah at least 2k people know by now... :)

    Look at it this way, there are lots of Thangorodrims.

    ALL THE LINKS-

    Two weeks ago, I discovered that J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth is real! He encoded the fist map of Middle Earth with this cipher- https://imgur.com/gallery/Qakrqda
    I was researching initial French and Spanish incursions into the Western Territories, looking for evidence of Amerindian land division, when I found this- https://imgur.com/gallery/9la21bh
    A first, I thought Tolkien had stolen the quote from Coronado, and just used the event in his tale. Then I considered how Minas Tirith is indeed a "shinning city on a hill" which is what Ciloba what was described as. What if Coronado was invading Rohan or Gondor?
    LOL, he was...
    Helm's Deep is today called "Laguna"- https://imgur.com/gallery/EpD0Ddn
    Minas Tirith is "Castle Mountain"- https://imgur.com/gallery/AbieNCU
    I've found everything where it should be, just renamed, all but the entry to Moria...I think it's buried.
    Oh, in a completely different pursuit, I also found the Labyrinth- https://imgur.com/gallery/c7v1tta

    Just out of curiosity, is this just some elaborate trolling operation going on?

    No, I found Middle Earth, and I need help protecting the sites!

    You are supposed to be Tolkien fans...

    Why don't you care??
