Original goodness

Non-dualism peering through the narrative of Middle Earth:
"And that is another reason why the Ring should be destroyed: as long as it is in the world it will be a danger even to the Wise: For nothing is evil in the beginning.  Even Sauron was not so."
Elrond, The Fellowship of the Ring (being the first part of The Lord of the Rings)

I have a friend who is a Richard Dawkins-style atheist, but she is also a huge fan of Lord of the Rings and the Tolkien universe. I sometimes wonder if she realizes that Tolkien was a Christian and intended his works to have subtle Christian (certainly religious) undertones.
