Why didn’t the Eagles just take the Fellowship directly to Mordor?
- Eagles are very proud and noble creatures who refused to get involved in the wars of men. Gandalf was only able to ride them because he was a Maiar, a semi-divine spirit, who the Lord of the Eagles, Gwaihir, owed a favor because Gandalf had once saved him from a poisoned arrow.
- The Fellowship was supposed to travel in secret. Sauron only knew that the Ring had left Gollum’s cave for the Shire, and was now somewhere else. Large eagles flying into Mordor would have tipped off Sauron and, most importantly, the Nazgul, which no creature could out-maneuver. The Nazgul would have killed the eagles and taken the Ring to Sauron.

Here’s a test:
I’m holding a baby in one hand and a petri dish holding a fetus in the other.
I’m going to drop one. You chose which.
If you really truly believe a fetus is the same thing as a baby, it should be impossible for you to decide. You should have to flip a coin, that’s how impossible the decision should be.
Shot in the dark, you saved the baby.
Because you’re aware there’s a difference.
Now admit it
I wouldn't be afraid of spiders if I could just talk to them, you know?
- Me: Oh, hey whoa, this shower is occupied.
- Spider: Omg man I didn't see you there.
- Me: We cool?
- Spider: Yeah, yeah, we're cool. I'm just coming down to scope out the tub.
- Me: Oh, that's legit. Hey, you might wanna move over some--you're descending right into the shower stream and I don't want you to drown.
- Spider: Hey thanks, bud. I'll be careful.
- Me: So...can I get out now?
- Spider: Sure, sure! Sorry I'll just move over here.
- Me: Thanks. You have a nice night. Don't come into my bedroom, okay?
- Spider: Nah, that's your space. We're cool. Have a great evening.
