According to Einstein, repeating the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome is the definition of insanity.

But you said that part was not serious and literal. This can only mean that you don't think we know everything there is to know about it. Jeez.

Seems your drivel is catching up with you, confusing yourself.


And quick add some dumb pic making some dumb point to show your complete ineptitude to respond in a way relevant to the conversation.



Or... you're trying to seriously and rationally argue about a topic that's ridiculous and irrational in a thread full of people who think the subject is a joke and at best, mildly entertaining.

I think you need to a take a deep breath, step away from your computer and go outside for a bit.

There's a whole world out there.

Repeatedly stating that "there is no way to counter" an irrational belief ... is ridiculous, non-productive, and off-topic in this discussion.

An irrational belief doesn't have to be "countered" particularly within a discussion pointing out that the belief itself is irrational.

Claiming that it is a "logical fallacy" to state that the most reasonable explanation is the most reasonable explanation is ... I am unsure of the proper modifier here ... ludicrous? non-sensical? absurd? tautological?

No claim was made in the OP that "ATS Members are idiots." The thesis was, and an entirely apt one for this forum, that believing that the best explanation for "the Mandela Effect(s)" is fantastic rather than mundane is idiotic in the face of, well, to my knowledge, 100% success with the mundane explanation.

I would not have chosen that descriptor, but I am not the OP. I submit that trying to dictate the words and phrases of others, in a thread dedicated to a reasonable, evidence-based explanation for a cultural phenomenon is not only "control freakish" but is also, in this case, disruptive behavior attempting to derail the stated intention of the thread.

Odd, I don't remember reading that he said that quote. Could you provide a reference to him saying that quote? Perhaps he made a YouTube video of it?

So what?


So what? You said it was all about ridiculing the theory.

You gonna stop shedding tears that I think the ME thing is ridiculous? Does it offend you or something?
...I may have to switch time lines to stop your whining.

Cool. Now, in your timeline, do you remember the nature of space and time being fully understood and explained too? If so, we might be from the same (or at least very similar) timelines.

But Google has been changed too....you know, due to the Hillary (sorry) Mandela Effect. You won't find the correct answer there anymore. I say I do not remember ever reading that he spoke that quote, prove me wrong then.

i think that parallel universes of infinite proportion are possible, but i think the "mandela effect" is just your mind creating false memories of the way you see things, because they usually shouldn't be the way you see it, i think it should be called sex in the city and interview with a vampire, and i remember thinking when shaq was cast as that genie that it should of been sinbad cause he was perfect for that role.
our memories creates false memories of how it thinks the thing should be.

You seem to have a really hard time sticking to the point of the conversation. You said you are merely ridiculing the theory, but you are doing it in a thread that is aimed at ridiculing the believers, and seem to be doing so yourself.

Well now, that would imply that the mind is fluid and capable of change over time. When, clearly, effect believers adamantly reject that idea. After all, how can these special folks that always remember things exactly as they happened ever come to grips with reality if they do not change the reality to suit their own inadequacies?

That is crazy talk right there....

I think the ME enthusiasts are taking the criticisms and joking around too personally. It's just a theory, for crying out loud. Laugh with the best of them.

I would say it is hard to prove if we can travel across the Earth and never encounter the edges.

I see, so my version is likely correct? My timeline has shifted to your timeline where he did say that quote. Is that the ONLY reason to explain it at all?

I can very easily turn this around on the skeptics. It is just a theory guys.

What if you traveled across the earth, did not encounter any edges, yet arrived back at your starting point? What does that indicate?
