This is a really 'quickfire' thread this morning; a simple note of caution concerning an aspect of the alleged 'Mandela Effect', with a slight
speculation concerning objective & purposes. I will NOT be discussing the veracity/ legitimate existence of the Mandela Effect. I will NOT be drawn
into arguments over:
a) Whether there is a Mandela Effect - or if simple 'faulty memory' is to blame (a laughable phrase, almost as jaded as the current British
governmental entrée when announcing their awful policies: "Let me be clear..")
b) The relative merits, intelligence, spiritual awesomeness, esoteric wizardry (or otherwise) of persons claiming to be 'experts' on the Mandela
c) Whether one person's memory of some Mandela Effects but not others is the 'correct' method of perceiving the effect (pro-tip: it is not).
d) What is responsible for the Mandela Effect (is it CERN, or a Nazi experiment in Argentina/ Antarctica, or the result of the Babalon working of
Jacky-boy Parsons in the Nevada desert 50 years ago, or an Illuminati pact with Archontic Grey Aliens, etc....)
And so on.
Instead, I am issuing a note of caution regarding what I believe is the ultimate objective of the Effect, a purpose well-noted already, an aspect re:
the 'inventory' of Mandela Effects which is most deadly serious, imho. This thread is in the Conspiracies in Religions forum because I believe
that manipulation of human religion is the ultimate objective & steely-eyed purpose of the Effect
. All the rest is bluster & misdirection (IE -
"look at all the pretty rainbow colour effects in the animal & plant kingdom, how glorious it is to suddenly see this fluffy New Age rainbow fixation
becoming manifest in physical reality...", etc). It's akin to the smoke & sparklers used by stage magicians while his real activity is ignored
entirely due to the successful adjustment in the orientation response of the audience.
I will state plainly & openly that although there are changes being noted in many religions, the key changes, the most jarring to participants in the
faith, the most existentially gutting, are the changes occurring (or seeming to occur) in literally thousands of verses from the Bible. Now with full
disclosure, I'm a committed (albeit 'mystic') Christian. HOWEVER, in all openness I cannot accept the nonsensical claptrap (& even deception)
coming from wolves in sheep's clothing who have convinced the world that they are preaching a Gospel message of salvation. In fact all they are
doing is setting up new believers for a fall from grace, sometimes by diabolic design (by failing to support them after their conversion, and failing
to provide theological understanding to underpin their noetic-emotional experience of the salvation of Christ. It makes me so angry to think about it
- but that tale is for another thread.
Herein, I won't focus on examples of individual Bible verses affected by the alleged Mandela Effect. There is an abundance of evidence & discussion,
most commonly found on YouTube at the current time (other sources exist!) Much of the YT commentary is utter dross, but if you look carefully you
will find some excellent lay ministers (even a few mainline ministers) discussing the Effect, and the literally soul-jarring consequence of observing
the changes to well-known, well-loved staple verses of Bible Scripture. These are verses which have brought millions through incredibly difficult
periods in their own lives or those of their fellows, which now appear not only to have been 'innocently' adjusted (IE - New Testament 'wineskins'
was changed to 'bottles' in the official KJV translation - which makes no sense because bottles clearly weren't invented at the time of Christ, a
fact that even 17th Century translators would have been well-aware of).
Far more sinister aspects of this Bible-alteration MEs include verses indicative of sadism in Jesus' character, such as the infamous: "Bring them &
slay them before me", which is noticeably different from the original verse stating "Throw them into the outer darkness". Now the verse in
question was always a hard one to cope with on a rational level, for obvious reasons which I won't go into here - but the change reflects not a judge
who has finally lost patience with the evildoers, instead now suggesting that he craves the sight of their execution before his eyes. Which is
patently NOT in the character of the Lord of Creation. And please, don't derail the thread with inaccurate, inflammatory & fully rebutted & refuted
concepts about the judgement of souls, the supposed flaming Hell, and so on. That's a thread for another day too. Herein, just notice the
not-so-subtle change in the character of the Lord of Creation, and observe how sinister a change that would have to be, if indeed we can attribute the
'memory anomaly' issue as being a legitimate, fundamental series of changes affecting the physical universe of space & time in ways that only a
'programmer with access codes' (A MAGICIAN) to an infinitely complex system - a holographic-type system - could realistically accomplish.
The changes in the Bible, more than in any other religion, are on a huge scale; intended as fundamental alteration of our INTERPRETING OF THAT FAITH.
Something which is warned about in the Book of Revelation, in that THE FINAL WORDS OF SCRIPTURE SUGGEST THAT THE WORDS & MEANING OF SCRIPTURE WILL BE
LIABLE TO BE CHANGED BY SOME NEFARIOUS, ACCURSED
Is it Nazis? Unlikely. They haven't the sophistication (neither does any human), even if they did somehow have access codes. Instead, I propose that
highly sophisticated alien 'powers & principalities', CTHULU-TYPE ENTITIES are responsible; beings which hate humanity, which hate life, which hate
God; hailing from an alternative dimension, existing in fundamentally different modes of engagement with Reality. I propose that ritual workings have
led to the release of these DEAD-BUT-DREAMING demonic beings, which is AN EXACT FULFILLMENT OF BIBLICAL PROPHECY.
I am convinced of this interpretation of the Effect (but of course you are free to choose your own interpretation & I would not engage in
argumentalism or evangelism to 'convert' you to my understanding).
I feel morally obligated to shout this out!
I have left the OP uncluttered with references & the plethora of examples which could be included in a denser, more complex OP. I will save that for
another day. Instead, in this thread, I want simply to make my opening statement of conviction - to prepare the ground for more inquiry later on.
Only a Cthulu-type alien 'god' would be capable of 'thinking' in the manner that alterations to the content of space & time from a human
perspective would necessitate. These beings are our enemy, akin to a far worse version of the mighty Leviathan & the Behemoth found in the Book of
Job. Remember that God never said it would be easy, and that we are to:
Work out your salvation in fear & trembling"
Which in my opinion means simply that even when reality is so terrifying that it leaves you wide-eyed, pale & with your heart pounding in your mouth,
you must maintain your course & hold your ground in the face of that butt-loosening fear. It does NOT mean that God is attacking you in order to
cause that fear & trembling.
The righteous will live by faith.
I will compose a response in-thread, which will include more references & quotes.
