For those of you who remember it occurring at a time other than 1986, and have currently kept in touch with those around you at the time, have those other people also verified the "odd" year?

It blew up in 1986, so maybe you are developing Alzheimer's or something...

It was 1986 I was a sophomore in high school wow what a sad day.

I am longtime lurker on this site, but I have NEVER posted until now.

I always remembered it happened when I was in second grade.

Then when I recently saw the 1986 date, I thought hard and realised it must have been 5th grade.

I have two distinct memories with two separate teachers and time periods of the same event.

This thread dejavued me good!

I live in the PST zone. Class was 10 minutes from starting... and in comes Mike B. telling us that the space shuttle just blew up.

The teacher stormed out of the room leaving the class alone.

When she returned with tears in her eyes...well, we all knew.

I was one of the kids who wanted to be an astronaut.

I am so tripped out right now.


Is Fidel Castro dead or alive in this dimension?
I swear it changes back and forth.

I was 5 years old when it happened in 1986. I have very clear memories of drawing pictures of the space shuttle from seeing it on TV a lot.

I have a very clear memory of drawing one of the pictures and "Freddy's Nightmares - A Nightmare On Elm Street the series" was on TV and we lived in an apartment above the restaurant my mom was working at. Except we didn't live there in 1986 and that show wasn't on TV until 1988 I believe. Never thought about that and that seems a little weird. I believe it was 1989 or 1990 when we lived in that apartment. I know it wasn't 1986 because we lived in a different city then.

I also have two memories involving lost time. One I remember waking up one day and looking right at the clock and it said 6:37, then I blinked and it said 8:02. Sat up thinking "OK...WTH was that?". I always figured I fell back to sleep for almost 2 more hours and it just felt like an instant to me. The other one happened on a walk home from my sisters house. I remember leaving her house and it was going on 8 PM. When I got home it was a little after 10 PM and to this day I have no memory of the actual walk home. I remember leaving her house and entering mine, can't remember the actual walk. I hate even thinking about that because I have no clue what happened.

Oh yeah, memory is such an unreliable thing. Just see all the threads on the subject. Why none of us can trust a single thing that we think we remember. No worries though, the gov and the MSM will tell you just how everything happened; or perhaps one of their agents.

This is so true! Not only do we have things possibly messing with our minds (aliens, IDBs, et cetera), But our minds mess up all the time. Like Deja Vu, its just an event happening, and instead of going into short term memory, it goes into long term, so it feels like we have been there before (or so say the doctors, whom i dont always trust, for personal reasons.)

I guess my point is...there is so much stuff our existance, that we either have no clue how it works/what it is, or that we just have not discovered yet. On top of this, governments lie to the ones they are 'sworn to protect,' and feeding us disinfo all the time. Who knows what really is real, and what is just afabrication of our minds/others manipulating.

This thread is so encouraging to me! I have always thought that I have brain damage of some kind (quite possible). I am even taking medications which help control the confusion.

I have always thought that I was "shifting" ever since I was a little kid; I don't know what else to call it. If I experience a bad time in life I would force myself to "shift" while I was sleeping and things would get better. I would have mixed up memories, but I didn't care as long as the situation got better. Kind of strange eh?

Maybe I am not as crazy as I think I am!

If my recollection is correct, It happended in 1983 and we were in class room when the Challenger exploded. It was just after the attempt of Regans life and The pope. Thats a time frame I can recall, also I remember "Gremlins" the movie didnt come out in theaters til "84.

Maybe there is a time shift of some sort but I know what i believe and I deeply honestly believe it was 1983.

Wow, lots of people are "losing time" around here.
But really, it seems there are a ton of new threads on this type of occurance. What's goin on?

Simple Time itself is changing but for some reason we are not... it's like we are watching a train go by...

It sounds crazy to be sure but many are noticing it... if you google threads here just at ATS you will find a lot..

It seems somehow time in not the same anymore... that a 'day' is currently actually 16 hours long...

There are universities studying this..

The US Naval Observatory has been measuring this

Apparently it started going wrong about 1980...

Logic says that because we are inside the loop that we should not be able to notice this... but we all feel it we DO notice it... we have called it 'missing time', 'dimensional slips' and some just 'lunacy'

But maybe because we are also spiritual beings... we can sense that something is wrong and I have been wondering lately if back in the day of Noah when they recorded long life spans for everyone before the flood... that suddenly changes after

Maybe this has happened before

And that the average life span of 40 during the Medieval time is the same as 100 years today and 600 years for Noah

That would mean we age the same... but time around us is different....

Yup I know crazy idea... and I have only started looking into this... but the fact that the US NAVY and many universities are also looking at this... I don't think I am to crazy

I will make a thread on this after I have looked at what's in the others

Very interesting Zorgon, just as I am ready to brush this aside as a quirk of memory you come along and spin my head around one more time...

It really is an interesting phenomenon and as you mentioned, it sure seems to be a recurring theme. I had one person U2U me that didnt want to post in the thread, but himself, two family members and one friend that he questioned all insisted that it was 1983. I don't see why there could not be some sort of scientific explanation other than 'alzheimers' as some have suggested. I asked the same question of my dad who was an engineer at Morton Thiokol where they manufactured the rocket motors, his memory was 1986.

Anyhow, I often joke that the earth seems to be going around the sun faster than it used to. Hmmmnn.....perhaps it's not such a joking matter. Whatever the case it sure is interesting to think about.

I bought a my first brand new 1986 Dodge Colt . I had it the day I was home sick and watched the event take place live.

I think that path in space time were riding in is getting worn out due to friction. We are wearing into time space and this is creating havoc.

lol...I thought osoma bin laden had died...then I heard he was alive..1986 for the shuttle, I was in high school and we were watching it on tv. I remember lots of people in shock and crying, basically the school ended up bringing out all the tv's and we just sat around watching for the rest of the day.

It was 1986 for me. Kinda hard to forget a platoon of soldiers in the barracks watching the launch, and explosion.

But correlating the gist this thread with another, I damn sure remember Billy Graham dying just several months ago, his funeral was the only thing on the big media stations. But .......... he's still alive.

You know when I read this and all the other people who have noticed people that have died are in fact alive I realised something.

Everyone that has said this has mentioned people that are famous. People that would obviously have a very public death announcement.

I wonder if this phenomenon is wide spread and the only reason we notice is is due to the very public way the announcements are made or maybe it affects everyone.

Didn't the book of revelations in the Bible talk about the Dead rising from their graves??

Power to the People!!

I'm not suggesting that it DIDN'T happen in 1986. I'm only commenting on how odd it is that I could have such vivid memories of it happening 3 years earlier when I was still in high school. Each time the subject has ever come up I always flash back to that memory of standing in the hallway with a bunch of other students and watching that TV in horror.

It's just so strange to realize that such a vivid memory could be completely wrong. It makes my head spin just thinking about it....

Exactly. Threads like this are not new but have had a resurgance lately. Just to add my 2 cents: Yes, we look at records and know that it happened in 1986, the problem is I also remember it happening in 1989. It's knowing two things at once, and it is an uncomfortable feeling. I remember it being 1980 because i was born in 1980, and i did my very first book report on the book "Ride Sally Ride", and it was in the third grade, but i ALSO remember writing it in the 5th grade...I wish i could find that book report. I wonder if any of these "splits" are more prominent in certain age groups? Anyone ever notice anything like that?

posted on Aug, 18 2008 @ 05:11 AM
I suggested that maybe the timeline had to do more with a certain age group, and after reading more threads and all of this one, the year 1980 does come up a lot. Now, that was the year i was born, is this relevant or is it blue car syndrome since that is my birth year? You know, if you go buy a brand new blue car suddenly it seems like there are more blue cars on the road than before, you start to see them everywhere. I think i jump towards that conclusion because i was born under Ophichius also, so i already have this weird "been a Sagitarious all my life and now i'm not" type thing mixed with the 1980 date. I can't get a good handle on it all, because i can't be objective about it. Anyone care to add something to my feelings?

That's the first I've heard of remembering two lines. Interesting!
Which sparked a new ponder in me .......... the next time someone that has both posted in this thread and experienced these line differences, and they remember this thread to come back and check it, what would it then be?

I remember, wholly, Billy Graham dying.
But he is in fact alive.
If the line changes later, and I then remember him as being alive, but in that next line he DID in fact die, would this very post still be here reflecting that I previously swore he was dead? Or would it then reflect that I remember him as being alive, when he would in fact be dead.

That one is for Neon Haze for throwing out the bit about the rapture and making me say "whoa!!", lolol.
