The forgotten fact about Dwarves......
« on: December 29, 2004, 05:24:31 AM »
Dwarves (proper plural 'dwarrows') are said to be wizened old men, who live deep under the Earth in large, magnificent caves, or underground palaces. One of the facts that has been forgotten by 90% percent of the world is that dwarves are said to have strange types of feet, which would not match thier upper torso. Legend tells how dwarves once lived among humans, and the humans always tried to see the dwarves feet, for they always kept them covered. In order to see what they looked like, they poured flour onto the ground. When a dwarf walked over the flour, an imprint of the foot would appear. According to the story, they appeared as duck feet, goat feet, and other animals. Strangley enough, this is also a trait demons are supposed to possess.     Raises some question s, doesn't it?

when churchyards yawn and hell itself breaths out contagion to this world,
now, could I drink hot blood, and do such bitter business as the day would quake to look on."

Not all demons are evil, says so in the Arabic beliefs.  Demons can be  :evil: as well as  :-D  .   I think that the Dwarves they tested were demons in disquise, as demonic beings can shape-shift.  If they tested many more than that, I suppose it could be a coincedence or they could be very distant relations.  Plus, NOT ALL DWARVES ARE OLD MEN!!!!!!!  HOW DO YOU THINK THEY REPRODUCE!!!!!!!!!

Yes, in Islam, it states that Allah created the jinn and some worshiped him, and adored him, and others, led by Iblis, the Devil turned away, leading humans astray and onto their destruction on the last day. This is why I can believe in the fae, and Islam. The good fae are simply the good jinn. Dwarves could be too... And in the books by Tolkien etc, Dwarves have feet like normal people (I think). So it just goes to show how myths are distorted and changed.
The Last day is near, and unless the Christians, Muslims and Jews unite against it which is tearing them apart - the devil, we will all perish

The problem with these studies is that they are changed so much over time that you don't know what is the Old and what is the New. Dwarves are espcially hard because they are always underground and can never be seen in the day for they turn to stone.
