    Nope. The Greeks were influenced by them apparently, especially in medicine and science.

    Okay, let me think. Right, we already had history and astrology, so let me switch to literature to keep the topics a little different from each other.
    Literature in my book means Lord of the Rings .

    So, can you tell me if Sauron and Gandalf are in some way related? If yes, how? If no, why not?

    You are close, but it is not yet right. What you described is the story of the Valnar, the gods of Middle Earth.

    Before Sauron, there was an even more powerful enemy called Melkor. He was one of the gods, and betrayed the other gods.

    I am inclined to say you are right though, since you don't know how close you are.

    duh... i misread Sauron as Saruman...

    now Sauron was one of the 'good' guys initially... until he made those Rings i think... i've only read Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers...

    ugh, damn astromony questions at the beginning of the thread, i took that last semester not realising what the course was about.

    "Patterns in Nature" how's that relate to astomony?

    A pulsar is a rotating neutron star which emits pulses of radiation. The neutron star rotates at a regular speed, which can be synchonised to a clock, they were discovered by someone called Jocelyn Bell.
    ah...Supernova??? or is that a star exloding?
    There are to types of supernovae single stars and ones which are transfering mass in a binary system. These stars are about 5 times bigger than the sun, which have run out of fuel to burn(fusion), which grows into a red giant, where gravity forces the star to shrink in which it becomes hotter, thus slowing the collapse of the star. when nothing is left but an iron core, the atoms, when they reach the nuclei it will not degenerate anymore and will bounce back and cause a small bang

    just want to thank nicky for bringing back bad memory's about that class

    trying to remember what the film was exactly about lol, although i did think it was crap and i will probably get slaughted by that comment from the enthusiasts.

    Before Sauron, there was an even more powerful enemy called Melkor. He was one of the gods, and betrayed the other gods.
    are that reminded me, Melkor was the one that made the ring that would "break" all other rings. Sauron betrayed Gandalf and went with Melkor, Sauron taught Gandalf magic or what ever i think, is that how there related?

    Nope, Sauron created the rings and was never allied with Gandalf.

    Sauron was the older magician right? I thought that Melkor (the evil bloke they try to stop), was the one that created the final ring that controlled all others, probably just my memories off tho:P

    No, I think you are confusing Sauron with Saruman. Saruman was the older wizard, who specialised in the Ring-lore. He knew everything about them, and especially about the One Ring, which was created by Sauron. Sauron never was good, he has always been an evil creature.
