    In Iceland, belief in elves (huldufolk, 'hidden people') is still widespread. Belief in elves is one of the more famous characteristics of Icelanders, in fact. A 1975 survey showed that 28% believed that huldufolk are 'impossible' or 'unlikely', 33% 'possible', and 22% 'likely' or 'certain' (with 17% 'no opinion').

    Iceland has an otherworldly landscape to begin with, and its 300,000 people are descended from Viking settlers who arrive in pagan times before 1000 CE. Folklore has a way of surviving and perpetuating itself in a place like that.

    What kind of UFO? A pixie is an unidentified flying object. And one that can plausibly fit the evidence left behind.

    Hey now. Don't cast aspersions upon the accounts of perfectly honest people who have no reason to lie.
    There are compelling eyewitness accounts of people seeing unidentified flying organisms.

    A pixie is a UFO again? Quote that from a dictionary or admit you're lying.

    So the only truth you can understand has to come from a dictionary?

    Which word do you need explained?
    unidentified?
    flying?
    or object?

    You demanded I show you a dictionary definition. I did so. See post 246.

    You laid down a demand, which I directly obliged. No apology or retraction.

    This is why your cries for "justice" fall on deaf ears. You have no character.

    Regardless, the theory still stands. The report is plausibly an account of pixies, spreading pixie dust. The evidence is consistent, as is the acccount of the witness, who no one will doubt is an honest and upstanding citizen who would have no reason to lie.

    The question is then raised: what do these pixies want with us? To study us? Why do governments hide evidence of them? Why don't they simply make contact?

    And while we're on the subject of natural phenomena, let's get back to the OP's topic.

    From the link:

    http://www.theparanormalguide.com/blog/fortean-phenomena

    This whole UFO aspect is off-topic.

    You lied that a pixie and a ufo are the same thing because you could never prove that with a dictionary definition. At this point you're simply trolling.

    Please do.

    No. I already quoted. And everybody knows that once a definition has been quoted, it is sacrosanct, carved in stone, unassailable by any further argument. My quote stands.

    I did not say a pixie and ufo are the same thing.

    Any more than I might say '3' and a number are the same thing. 3 (instance) is a number (group). A pixie (instance) is a ufo (group).

    And, if I were a lesser man, I would now call you a liar or some such slur. But that's not what civilized adults do.

    3 is a number.

    Is that saying that '3' and 'all numbers' are the same?

    This is basic logic. Is English not your first language?
