I'm still trying to work out a reasonable explanation for the Mandela Effect.
I've tried to explain it in this thread and stand by it, however I notice quite often people are saying you won't understand until you experience it. As my theory relies on pretty much everyone being susceptible to experiencing this effect I'm looking to prove myself wrong.

Sooooo...

Is there anyone who has never experienced the Mandela Effect?

or to avoid confusion I could word it as...

Has anyone never gone "Hmmmmm, I'm sure it was X"

The majority of the worlds population has likely not experienced the Mandela effect, and realizes that their memories are not infallible.

I haven't "experienced the ME".

I have had a faulty memory. I've also been subjected to pop culture. And I've been wrong about some other stuff that I'm not trained in.

No, I haven't.

The "Mandela Effect" is not what I've experienced as I have a perfectly rational and scientific explanation for what has happened. The "Mandela Effect" doesn't have that.

I often misremember things and replace it with shortcut thinking.

aint nobody gonna break a my spine! aint nobody gonna slow me down.

that was the lyrics when I was a kid..lemme guess, they changed it!!!
But I know it was spine and not stride...because I sung it like that as a kid

It is a farce. It is not real.

I have not experienced it. Nor has anyone else.

There may be feelings and memories that are explained away by it, but those are the faulty ones and there are logical reasonable explanations for it.

You have a perfectly rational and scientific explanation for the Mandela Effect you have experienced.

I consider "Hmmm, I was sure it was X" as experiencing the Mandela Effect.

Everybody has misremembered or not realized a celebrity has died or misheard song lyrics or movie lines - literally everybody.
That does not mean that it's anything to do with time slips or alternate timelines or the like.
On the flip side, it doesn't mean that ME is not real.

I get what you're saying, but the "Mandela Effect" is something beyond rational and scientific explanations. Just look at any of the believers in any of the ME threads.

Note: I don't believe the Mandela effect is anything other than faulty memories, pop culture and lack of education of specific areas (anatomy, geography etc).

Well, I distinctly remember Nelson Mandela not dying in the 1980s, and being President in the 90s, so no.

I might be more accepting of the theory if it were not based on a glaring falsehood.

So that last post makes me think you misunderstood my question.

I already answered your question with my first post.

I will edit and delete my text in the one you refer to.

As to not sidetrack your thread. My bad for posting it.

I don't think the point of it would have stuck with many anyway.

No dramas, I'm just trying to clarify the question.

When I ask if anyone's not experienced the ME I'm just talking about that feeling of "I'm sure I was right".
I'm not trying to entertain the BS answers explaining it I'm just trying to show either...

Everyone has this experience
or
Some people don't experience because of X

Well, after that explanation, I expect nearly 100% of people have had a "I thought my keys were there", "I thought this lyric said this", "I could have sworn I got xx from the shop", "now where did I leave xx?", "oh cool! I just found a tenner in my wallet!", and so on.

Well, there are rational explanations for the Mandela Effect. I'll be honest with you here... I hate using the term Mandela Effect. Just using it gives it some sort of credence. Because the (*shudders*) Mandela Effect is easily and rationally explainable, then there really is no effect, is there? There is just the rational explanation for the faulty memory (faulty not necessarily meaning bad either). Why should we give weight to something that has nothing to back it up.

I remember it being Bernstein Bears. Clearly it isn't though.

However, apparently other people back in the day did as well. I had the books, and had some of the movies. Maybe the reason I remember it ending in 'stein' is because it was printed that way on one of the VHS tapes? Can't be certain as it's been twenty years or more since I cared to read or watch that series.

The irrational explanation is that it's residual evidence.

That goes for the other forms of "evidence" as well.

Just wanted to clarify my opinion on the ME and why I haven't experienced it.

I have experienced remembering things one way when they weren't though.

You'll be hard pressed to find anyone who hasn't.
