Merge Proposal

I think that Ages of the Children of Ilúvatar and Ages are two different articles. This one is centered around the children of Ilúvatar, which I believe are the races of elves and men. I think the article ages really centers on the age of men specifically.

It seems to me that we like to have articles on concepts no matter how small they might be. For example, Ilúvatar and Eru are the same person, but the main article actually describing the character is Eru while Ilúvatar describes the nature of the word. I think using this same rational we could have an article about ages defining what the concept of "ages" means within Tolkien's legendarium. Yet, I do think that ages needs a little more work.

I also would to add I think the template History of Arda might be incorrect with using Ages of Ilúvatar. The ages actually starts with the years of the trees and not after the years of the sun. I think I better title for it would be "the ages of Men". --Pinkkeith 10:43, 10 June 2010 (UTC)
