Steeped with folklore and mythology, Iceland is no stranger to tales of elves roaming the wilderness. Last December, 25 people turned out to protest the construction of a road through a lava field near Reykjavik on the basis that it would pass through a rock believed to be an elven church.

One of those participating in the protests was Ragnhildur Jónsdóttir, who from an early age maintained that she had the ability to see and communicate with these mythological sprites. No stranger to the inquisitive glance of strangers, Jónsdóttir remains steadfast in her beliefs and is convinced that everything she says is true.

When you’re a long way from Christ there are all kinds of possibilities.

Many folks talk to Christ. I don’t see much of a difference between elves and Christ. To each their own, I guess.

Christ is the English from Greek word that matches the English from Hebrew word Messiah, signifying the Holy One of Israel prophesied in the Bible that will redeem Israel, include the Gentiles, and rule all nations from Jerusalem. Jesus of Nazareth was a historical man who is also the Christ. Elves, if one takes the origin from German mythology, would probably seem like angels from a Biblical perspective, which could be good or bad. In any case there is a huge difference between elves and Christ.

"Iceland's signature alcoholic beverage is Brennivín (literally "burnt (i.e. distilled) wine"), which is similar to Scandinavian akvavit. It is a type of vodka made from distilled potatoes and flavoured with either caraway seeds or angelica. Its potency has earned it the nickname svarti dauði ("Black Death")."

Coincidence? You decide.

Aaaannd, it goes from there.

My favorite scene from Labyrinth:

"OW! It bit me!!"

"Of course it bit you, it's a fairy."

I tire of your non-believer negativity. Here is scientific proof of elves, fairies, and leprechauns. Besides, I find your attack on this Icelandic Maiden to be racis!

What is insane?
Today some some want celebtate drafted gay athletes others want to save elves.
Who is crazier? Who am I to judge?
I have to admit that I like elves, but am really tired of homosexuals wrecking all things for everyone else.
I guess I will choose to side with the loons in Iceland. They are less harmful to mankind than the gay mafia.

“Many folks talk to Christ. I don’t see much of a difference between elves and Christ.”

That’s because you aren’t particularly knowledgeable or intelligent.

But ignorance is bliss, and also, in your case smarminess.

Yep. They can show you God just as accurately as this lady can show you little people. Both are based on faith so for you it exists or not.

“Shouldn’t the headline be “Woman in Iceland is insane”?”

Yes.

The thing is, Iceland is incredibly advanced and because of it’s small population which is relatively insulated, they are using themselves for genetic studies in to disease.

This gall, and others who see the wee people, will provide a good group for evaluating schizophrenia.

remains steadfast in her beliefs and is convinced that everything she says is true.... I do, too. But my old lady says “I SAW you in bed with that 20 year old chippy” I keep telling her “it wasn’t me!! It was Elsnogh Recldesipahn, the guy down the street.” Might have been. She left four months ago and I haven’t seen her since.

Actually, since they claimed that they were from Bratislava, that would make them Slovak, not Czech.
