What are your thoughts on the mandela effect?

Thread merged with old Mandela Effect thread... so you've got 50 posts so far to see these "thoughts". ;)

Search forum before you create thread... more often than not there already is one (we've been going for almost 10 years).

Being a southerner, the miss spelling of Chic-Fil-a is especially disturbing. Because I have memories of conversations I had with my parents about how weird it was that "CHIC" did not have a K in it, but has always had one? Bullcrap.

I can prove the Mandela effect.

Go up to any Christian and ask them...

"Do you know the bible saying: 'Do not pour new wine into old wineskins, lest the wineskins burst"

Every Christian knows this line in the bible..... Except.... Creepy thing is.... It doesn't exist.

The bible now says "bottles"

"Do not pour new wine into old bottles" is how the bible verse reads today.

This is literally mind blowing. Bibles that I  know that I have read the story of the wineskins, old Bible's, they now read differently and read as bottles.

It's insane. The verse doesn't even make sense anymore when the word is replaced by the word bottles since bottles do not break when you put wine in them.

Everyone that's ever studied the scriptures knows this line and yet it no longer exists and would seemingly "never" has existed.

My second example, even crazier than the first.

There is a famous line in the bible that talks about the golden age and once read "and the Lion would lay with the lamb"

This line is so famous there are literally many painting of lions laying with lambs in many churches. There are videos of priests reading out this verse from the bible online.... Only thing is.... That line of scripture no longer exists.

Even a Bible 30 years old  now reads "and the wolf will lay with the lamb"

I'm getting shivers thinking about this. It's completely mind boggling. One of the most famous lines of scripture never existed. Except that is  did exist and it has somewho been changed. And I don't mean the publication has changed. I mean that even very old copies of both the King James and the new international versions have changed.

A number of diligent Christian s have noticed this phenomenon and there are countless other examples of this. New prophet names that never existed before... Many many examples but these two are very provable since they are very well known verses in the bible and there is physical evidence such as paintings and online bible readings to prove the original condition of the scripture.

I noticed something od. The effect seems to only have effected most bibles. But strange, less commonly known prints, such as Hebrew reference bibles and other niche prints have not been effected and still contain the original text.

Spooky as fuck and my call is that 'Dark Magic' is to blame for this. Another Satanism manoeuvre to undermine culture and history.

Anyway. Have a look for yourself. It's facts. And it will give you the absolute chills to experience the reality of what I've just shared.

I was fully convinced of the Mandela Effect when Dolly's braces (Jaws' girlfriend) in the James Bond movie Moonraker disappeared, she now has no braces. People have checked the original 35mm movie theater reels from 1979, old VHS's, DVD's, and BR's of all years, and in each and every single media she has no braces. When they interviewed the actress that played Dolly, she said she never wore braces in the movie. I clearly remember her having big braces. This makes me believe the Mandela Effect is real.



The Quantum Businessman has a great channel about this phenomenon, he is very coherent and knows what he is talking about.

Wow, I also beleive in the mandela effect; but these two bible verses you mentioned I just checked with my bibles in house and yes they have changed. Must have been fairly recent too because I only actively started reading the book say 4 years ago.
COVID-19.. was the start, or end of something IMO. (or the visible manifestation of something that started before)

This one recently blew my mind....

Anyone remember the village people?
In the universe I grew up in, there were only 5 members.

The guy in the green army clothes is new to me.
I grew up seeing the village people on TV, even saw the film as recently as 8 years ago.
But I've seen him for the first time in my life a few days ago.
I checked all the old pictures and music videos...and he's in all of them.
WTF?!?

"Do not pour new wine into old bottles" is how the bible verse reads today.

This is literally mind blowing. Bibles that I  know that I have read the story of the wineskins, old Bible's, they now read differently and read as bottles.

Sorry EM but this is BS. The texts DO still contain the words that we all know. See here:


New American Standard Bible

"Nor do people put new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the wineskins burst, and the wine pours out and the wineskins are ruined; but they put new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.”

King James Version

Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.

Holman Bible

And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the skins burst, the wine spills out, and the skins are ruined. But they put new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.”

International Standard Version

Nor do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will spill out, and the skins will be ruined. Instead, they pour new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved."

A Conservative Version

Neither do they put new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise the wineskins burst, and the wine is spilled, and the wineskins will perish. But they put new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.

American Standard Version


Neither do men put new wine into old wine-skins: else the skins burst, and the wine is spilled, and the skins perish: but they put new wine into fresh wine-skins, and both are preserved.

Amplified

Nor is new wine put into old wineskins [that have lost their elasticity]; otherwise the wineskins burst, and the [fermenting] wine spills and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine is put into fresh wineskins, so both are preserved.”


So what we can conclude from this is that in fact the so-called Mandela Effect is actually just another form of suggestion psychology. The perpetrator offers a suggestion of how something was, which is false, in the hope that the listener will simply accept it as true and then be amazed when they find reality is different. Thus in the case of the film Moonraker, the con artist places the suggestion in our minds that the girl that falls for Jaws wore braces and it's a suggestion reinforced by the image of Jaws himself and his metal teeth. The suggestion however is false. This is the stuff of Derren Brown. The power of suggestion and it has many many forms and techniques.

Your quote line makes no sense whatsoever. Since when have lions been associated with eating or hunting sheep?!!! Have you ever seen a wildlife documentary where a lion goes running after sheep ? I haven't. It is and always has been wolves and similar canines that in the main prey on sheep. You've just remembered the Bible stories and quotes incorrectly.

Isaiah 65:25

The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.



Lions would kill a sheep and eat it, but it rarely happens in the wild as the lions have better alternatives and regular food like deer and gazelles. So, a lion would eat a sheep without any complaints, but it happens rarely.

Lions mostly roam in the areas of grasslands and Savannahs. On the other hand, sheep are known to live in hilly areas; and most of them are grown on farms. So they are farm animals.


Lions and sheep don’t share the same habitat, and it’s safe to say that their habitats don’t collide with each other. Sheep share their habitat more with mountain lions than with lions.

That's not a picture of the Village People from the pop years of YMCA. For a start there's no police man with a helmet. Here's the gang as we saw them in 1978

YMCA.png

What we saw were 5 chaps always dancing in a line behind a front lead singer. If you ask people what characters there were I believe 90% would say a cowboy, an indian, a policeman, an archetypal moustachio guy in leathers and a builder. They probably wouldn't remember the guy on the right.

I find the Mandela Effect annoying.

I do know the brain can play tricks, esp. memory and certain things can generate the same confusion with a lot of people... thus we think something fishy is going on when in fact it's only our mind playing tricks.

I don't know how many times I've quoted a film and then years later seen the film again only to discover the quote was incorrect. It's because the brain "improves" what is heard or "simplifies" it.

But the problem with the logical understanding of the Mandela Effect is the notion that I would not be surprised at all if some genuine fuckery is going on with our timeline.
