    Heill og sæll

    Very interesting. Im icelandic. I am a decendant of the first Icelandic settlers and I can even trace my bloodline further back, even back to Norway. About 1500 years back in time.

    I would say that I am pure...

    Any questions?

    Yeah. How does one go about tracing one's roots that back far? It'd be interesting if i could do that too.

    Takk fyrrir Suomut. I have traced my lineage back as well from the book of Icelanders.

    Well if you are Icelandic and have a icelandic you can log on to www.islendingabok.is (Íslendingabók). There you can enter any icelandic name and see how you are related to the person wich name you entered. This page is owned by a Icelandic company, Decode (Íslensk erfðagreining/Icelandic genetical decode).

    The reason icelanders can trace back their bloodline so far is that iceland has always been a island with a small population and icelanders have always had much interest in genealogy.

    One of my forefathers are the men who wrote the Eddas.

    Hope this shed some light on the matter.

    I visited Iceland a few years ago, and found it to be a remarkably beautiful and interesting country.

    It was quite instructive to note how Iceland, which is really a very resource-poor country, has been able to use its native talent and ingenuity to establish such a stable, prosperous society. Compare it to, say, any of the west African countries, which have tons of natural resources, but are immersed in poverty, corruption, and squalor, and the real potential inherent in Nordic people becomes clear. They can turn a desert into a source of riches, while other people surrounded by riches are incapable of lifting themselves out of poverty.

    It's the Japan of Europe. Very Homogenius population, High standard of living, nice hot springs. Half the country runs on Geo-thermoic energy.

    The Icelandic Sagas an interesting peak into the Viking past of Icelanders.
    Mostly of Danish/Norwegian Roots, noticible Celtic contribution to the population. The Vikings took Celtic Women as slavs since their was a shortage in women.

    Or else they couldn't resist bringing a few Irish Redheads along with them for their asthetic value.

    Actually, I've been to all the Scandinavian countries, and I've noticed that redheads were far more common in Iceland than any of the others. I don't recall seeing a single redhead in Finland, or Sweden either I believe. A Celtic phenotype does seem to coexist in Iceland alongside the more purely Scandinavian types, and of course there are a number of individuals there who appear to be blends of these types.

    You forget a whole bunch of important factors, like the IMF, the discriminatory practices against the non-Western countries, the artificial borders and states in Africa, lack of isolation (like it is the case of Iceland). Iceland also enjoys a free supply of warm energy from the geysers, nor was it devastated by two world wars (I think the last war fought on Iceland took place in the 1200's, in addition there were some raids by German, English, Spanish, and even Moorish pirates until the 1600's, but nothing really major). There was also a devastating eruption of Hecla in the 1700's (I think), but that's about it. Iceland does not even need to spend anything on military, because it is protected by the U.S. troops on its soil.



    I also do not agree with the claim that both Japan and Iceland are homogenous, in fact they're not!

    In other words, Iceland is lucky, while many other countries are not.

    Of course, what was I thinking? Clearly, Iceland's success has nothing to do with the calibre of people living there, and Africa would be a thriving hotbed of economic activity if it weren't for the evil IMF.
