What I particularly like about Tolkien Fans, is that they are generally more educated than the average fanboy ;) . I'm sure you'll do fine Fela.

This is generally true, GB. Do you think it is because they read Tolkien, or do you think they read Tolkien because they are more educated? hmmm..

That's almost a chicken and egg question Beren. My guess is that Tolkien (and Lewis too) lovers were probably raised on Fairy Tales and Greek/Norse/Celtic Myths in children's books format. This probably inspired them to read more, move on to Tolkien, and thus become more educated in the process.

Reading Tolkien in particular requires a certain level of intellectual sophistication :ugeek: . And as I subscribe to the notion that Nurture can only help people reach their own Nature's potential, it's really a bit of both.
