What is The Mandela Effect?
The Mandela Effect is a phenomenon created by paranormal consultant and blogger Fiona Broome who coined the term in 2010 just after attending a Dragon Con convention where she came to realize many people there believed that South African President Nelson Mandela died in imprisonment during the 1980’s. The truth is, Mandela actually died in 2013. But this wasn’t just a handful of people that distinctly remember him dying 3 decades ago. Hundreds if not thousands have made the same claim. They remember newscasts about it and conversations they had about it at the time.
But Nelson Mandela isn’t the only example of this bizarre occurrence. People have come forward with hundreds of other examples in the past few years making one wonder if these are just false memories or if there’s something more at play. Some have hypothesized even Parallel Universes, Quantum Physics, and even Time Travel could be the reason for these alternative memories.
Let’s look at some more examples of The Mandela Effect and see if any strike you as odd.
