  11. Who does the lamb lie down with in the bible?

Now let’s briefly get an understanding as to the nature of the Mandela Effect.

The Mandela Effect is a term that identifies why a well-known detail, event or physicality is directly in opposition to the details of a central core object (Explained below).

It is named after Nelson Mandela in respect to a large group of people all sharing the memory of him dying in prison back in 1991 but later seeing him alive and healthy leaving that same prison.

Why is this or any other Mandela Effect not easily dismissed? The reason is due to opposing residual evidence that is very visible publicly and palatably close privately.

Let’s look at the situation referenced above in the creating of the name Mandela Effect:

  • First, we have the Event:
    • Nelson Mandela dies in prison
  • Then we have the residual evidence :
    • Privately
      • People talk about it.
        • U.S. President George W. Bush, who stated that the former South African leader was dead on national television.
      • People are emotional about it.
      • People write about it.
    • Publicly
      • People post in social media.
      • Books are published with references in them.
        • Book Title: English Alive: Authors: Kathleen Heugh, Anita Kennet: Publisher: Claremont: Western Cape Branch of the South African Council for English Education, 1991
          • Page No.: 54 — “Yet, words like reconciliation and the new South Africa simply were not long enough to bridge the vast differences between blacks and whites. The chaos that erupted in the ranks of the ANC when Nelson Mandela died on the 23rd of July 1991 brought the January 29th 1991 Inkatha-ANC peace accord to nothing. It lacked one thing. It lacked the last realization.”
  • Second, we have the core object :
    • Nelson Mandela himself being alive
  • We also have active content supporting the core object
    • Privately
      • People talk about it.
      • People are emotional about it.
      • People write about it.
    • Publicly
      • People post in social media.
      • Books are published with references in them.
        • Long Walk to Freedom: Nelson R. Mandela and the Nelson Mandela Foundation / PQ Blackwell Ltd
          • Amazon Desc: “Released from prison in 1990, Mandela won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and was inaugurated as the first democratically elected president of South Africa in 1994”

As you can see we now have two versions of the facts fully supported by people around the world and both have public and private evidence that conflict with each other.

One last thing to think about before you read the answers to the earlier questions. Why are we just now noticing and talking about this? Keep in mind that the bulk of what you are about to understand was only noticed in the year 2016. For each event, product, title, a line from a movie or book and regardless of whether you believe it or not, why did the masses not notice until the year 2016?

Below you will find the answers to the questions you were asked earlier in this post. You will soon know if you are supporting or opposing the core object with your residual evidence. Either way, keep in mind that you are not crazy, millions of people worldwide are experiencing what you may be about to experience.

Answer 1: Six people were seated in the president’s car during the shooting of John F. Kennedy

Where this becomes a Mandela Effect Issue: The FBI, two museums, book writers, tour guides, and millions of people worldwide remember there only being 4 people in the car due to an opposing fact that there were only 2 rows of seats in the car.

  • The Secret Service film reenactment of the assassination shows a 2 row 4-seater car.
  • The JFK Deluxe Tour in Dallas has a 2 row 4-seater car.
  • The Historic Auto Attractions Museum in Roscoe, IL has a 2 row 4-seater car.
  • The book “On the Trail of the JFK Assassins” by Dick Russell has a 2 row 4-seater car.
  • The Dahl Auto Museum in La Crosse, WI has a 2 row 4-seater car.
  • The movie “The Trial of Lee Harvey Oswald” has a 2 row 4-seater car.
  • Other 3rd party historical re-enactments on you tube have a 2 row 4-seater car.


Answer 2: The name of the product is Vicks VapoRub

Where this becomes a Mandela Effect Issue: A major competitor and millions of people worldwide remember the name as Vicks Vapor Rub.

  • What does it mean for a competitor to have the wrong name of who they are competing against on the label as a reference?
    • A daily ignorance that the label is wrong from the entire marketing team.
    • Millions of dollars spent monthly to compete against a nonexistent product.
    • Millions of Americans seemingly knowing that the name is wrong thinking if they can’t get that right how worthless is the actual product because there is no attention to detail.


Answer 3: The line from “Forrest Gump”:       “Life was like a box of chocolates”

Where this becomes a Mandela Effect Issue:  Tom Hanks himself, a cell phone recording on the set that day, and millions of people worldwide remember the line as “Life is like a box of chocolates”.

  • This is one of the few times where we have a cell phone recording of the event on set that shows him saying “Life is like a box of chocolates” but the actual movie shows “Life was like a box of chocolates”.
  • We also see Tom Hanks replaying the line in a skit on a late night show using the line “Life is like a box of chocolates”.
  • Think about the number of skits done on other TV shows and Movies where the line “Life is like a box of chocolates” was used rather than the line in the actual movie. Think about how many production studios, actors, directors, etc got this wrong when reproducing the skit.

Answer 4: The line from “Snow White” is “Magic mirror on the wall…”

Where this becomes a Mandela Effect Issue: The original Brothers Grimm stories, Disney and millions of people worldwide remember the line as “Mirror mirror on the wall…”.

  • The Disney movie was adapted from the Grimm brothers’ tale “Schneewittchen” who currently still shows the line to read “Mirror mirror on the wall…”.
  • Here is where it gets very difficult to ignore, Disney themselves replicate the lines in other Disney Movies and cartoons as “Mirror mirror on the wall…” but as you can see below all of that is in conflict with the core object (The Original Movie).

Answer 5: The title is “Sex And The City”

Where this becomes a Mandela Effect Issue: The Emmy Awards, The TV Show “The View”, website, and millions of people worldwide remember the title as “Sex In The City”.

  • Actors from the TV show being interviewed on the TV show “The View” referred to the show they act on as “Sex In The City”. Why would the actors not know the name of the very show they play in?
  • The Emmy Awards referred to the TV show as “Sex In The City”. With the scrutiny and detail provided by the Emmy Award process, how could so many people not only miss getting the name right but never comment on it afterward?
  • Even a popular online dictionary has a reference to the show as “Sex In The City”.

Answer 6: The Matrix is the Womb and you first heard of it from the Bible

Where this becomes a Mandela Effect Issue:  When you ask people this question the only reference they have is the 1999 movie “The Matrix”. So to now see it in the Bible really freaks people out. Don’t you remember being in church all those Sundays hearing the preacher speak of the Matrix being the womb? How about in Sunday school? How about on the 24 hour CBN network? How about in Bible College?

  • KJV Exodus 13:12: That thou shalt set apart unto the Lord all that openeth the matrix, and every firstling that cometh of a beast which thou hast; the males shall be the Lord’s.
  • KJV Exodus 13:15: And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that the Lord slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to the Lord all that openeth the matrix, being males; but all the firstborn of my children I redeem.
  • KJV Exodus 34:19: All that openeth the matrix is mine; and every firstling among thy cattle, whether ox or sheep, that is male.
  • KJV Numbers 3:12: And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of all the firstborn that openeth the matrix among the children of Israel: therefore the Levites shall be mine;
  • KJV Numbers 18:15: Every thing that openeth the matrix in all flesh, which they bring unto the Lord, whether it be of men or beasts, shall be thine: nevertheless the firstborn of man shalt thou surely redeem, and the firstling of unclean beasts shalt thou redeem.

Answer 7: C3PO is Gold with One Silver Leg

Where this becomes a Mandela Effect Issue:  Countless TV show repeat skits, Countless manufactured toys, and millions of people worldwide remember C3PO being solid gold.

  • Why would manufacturers make toy replicas that don’t match the actual character knowing the seriousness of Star Wars fans when it comes to memorabilia and collector value?
  • Why would TV shows on almost every network have skits that include the wrong C3PO?


Answer 8: The Scarecrow from The Wizard of OZ carries a gun

Where this becomes a Mandela Effect Issue:  The original script, countless reproductions, and millions of people worldwide don’t remember him having a gun of any kind.

  • In the original script (by Noel Langley, Florence Ryerson and Edgar Allan Woolf) there’s no mention of a gun.
  • Where did the Scarecrow acquire the firearm in OZ? Is there a gun store next to the yellow brick road? Why not shoot the flying monkeys rather than hide from them?
  • Many things were “toned down” from the screenplay to make the movie more kid-friendly. For instance, the skywriting the Witch does with her broom originally spelled “Surrender Dorothy or Die.” Yet nobody considered that when giving a pistol to the friendliest character with no brain was an issue.
  • Due to the iconic status of “Oz,” the film has been dissected and analyzed ad nauseam. There have been countless behind-the-scenes books and documentaries. Yet no conversation on why or how the Scarecrow has a pistol.

Answer 9: The Movie title is “Interview With The Vampire”

Where this becomes a Mandela Effect Issue:  The Author, The Oscars, David Letterman, and millions of people worldwide remember the Movie title as “Interview With A Vampire”.

  • When the Author (Anne Rice) calls it “Interview with A Vampire” you have to ask yourself why anyone would call it anything else.
  • Think about the scrutiny of the Oscars and the fact that no one knew the name they were using for the movie or book was incorrect and no one after the awards mentioned it.

Answer 10: The words from the last line of the song from queen are “No time for losers ‘Cause we are the champions”

Where this becomes a Mandela Effect Issue:  The lead singer “Freddie Mercury”, the band Queen, and millions of people worldwide remember the line as “No time for losers ‘Cause we are the champions…. of the World”.

  • A live on stage recording of the band Queen shows the song played the way most remember it but somehow all other recordings, songs, and lyrics, including the first video of it, don’t have this ending.
  • Countless remakes and tribute songs have the ending most remember but not the actual song.

Answer 11: In the Bible the lamb lies down with the wolf

Where this becomes a Mandela Effect Issue: Martin Luther King Jr., Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, countless preachers and clergy, and millions of people worldwide remember the lion lying down with the lamb.

  • Isaiah 11:6 (KJV): The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
  • Martin Luther King Jr. speech from 1964; “And the lion and the lamb shall lie down together and every man shall sit under his own vine and fig tree and none shall be afraid. I still believe that we shall overcome!”
  • A countless number of singers (some famous) and preachers say in song and speech that the lion lies down with the lamb.

Other changes to look into:

  • “Whiteout” (for correcting mistakes) is now “Wite Out”.
  • Moses from the Bible now has horns. (In statues and DRA Bible)
  • Hitler now has light blue eyes rather than dark dead eyes.
  • Mr. Rogers Neighborhood theme song changed from, “It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood”, to “it’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood.”
  • The line from the “I Love Lucy” (“Lucy! You got some ‘splainin’ to do!”) was never said….. ever.

  • The TV show “Johnny Quest” is now “Jonny Quest”.
  • Depends adult support is now called Depend.

  • Jiffy peanut butter no longer exists, now there is only Jiff peanut butter. Restaurants that have famous Jiffy Burgers now have them for no reason.
  • Daylight Savings Time is now Daylight Saving Time
  • CliffNotes is now CliffNote …… come on!
  • The “Village People” band now has 6 people rather than 5.
  • Darth Vader doesn’t say “Luke, I am your father”, he now says “No, I am your father”.
  • The Berenstein Bears is now the Berenstain Bears.
  • In Jaws, it’s not “We’re gonna need a bigger boat”, it’s “You’re gonna need a bigger boat”.
  • Capricorn Zodiac Sign is no longer a Goat, it is now half goat and half fish creature.
  • In the movie, “Field of Dreams”, the line was “If you build it, they will come”.  Now it’s “If you build it, he will come”.
  • Jackie killed JFK as a possible second shooter. I have studied the JFK shooting for over 20 years and 2016 is the first time I have ever heard this theory.
  • The sword in the stone is now in an anvil. This doesn’t even make sense but see for yourself.
  • Volkswagen logo has changed
  • Volvo logo has changed
  • Ford logo has changed
  • XBOX logo changed

No longer assume that something you see in public that doesn’t match your memory must have been changed by the manufacturer or that you remember it incorrectly. You are now aware of the Mandela Effect and know that millions of people worldwide share the same experience, that things changed in the year 2016 regardless of opposing evidence of them always have been as they appear today.
