(→‎Trú: If so, split and refer! Write a suggestion, if you wish. BTW, what about "heiðnafólk"?)
:::Cessator, if you write a suggestion of such a text here at this talk page, in Icelandic or in a mixture of Icelandic and Faroese:-), then perhaps we all could try to make better Faroese out of it - especially Quackor, who happens to know the language as a native:-).
:::By the way, if there are any reliable sources for the amount of people in Iceland who believe or suspect the existence of "heiðin fólk" (such as "huldufólk", or Swedish "skogsrår" or "tomtar"), then this figure could also be worth to mention. According to rumour, such belief might be somewhat more spread on Iceland than in other Nordic countries of to-day; and even sometimes might influence the precise way a new road is built. Is this true? [[Brúkari:JoergenB|Jörgen B]] 20. jan 2010 kl. 20:09 (UTC)
::::That would be a good way to write about religion in Iceland. There was a rather extensive survey conducted a few years ago by Gallup at the request of the Icelandic state church regarding religious beliefs of Icelanders; the report was for a long time available online but I can't find it anymore, so I guess I have to drop this matter. But the conclusion was that two out of every three said that they believed in a god or a higher being or power and of those who said they believed in a higher power two out of every three said that they believed in Jesus Christ. This means that about 50% of Icelanders are actually Christian.
::::As for heathens ("heiðið fólk" or "heiðingjar"), all I know is that [[:is:Ásatrúarfélagið]] has 1395 members as of December 1, 2009, but I don't know how many of them are actual believers. Belief in "huldufólk" (literally "hidden people" i.e. elves) ...well, it exists, but I don't know how widespread it actually is, but regardless of whether or not there are people who actually believe in them, yes it does happen that the precise location of a new road might be influenced by tales of elves. --[[Brúkari:Cessator|Cessator]] 20. jan 2010 kl. 20:50 (UTC)
