Both names are pronounced the same, I don't remember how it was spelled as a kid. Love the ridiculous conspiracy theory though.

The one where people don't actually believe this is real.

It's called the Mandela Effect cos ignorant people thought he died in jail in the 80s.

Could've sworn it was spelt with an "e," but then again, I can be wrong. Also, wasn't it a known fact that "Luke, I am your father" was one of the most misquoted quotes (referencing what was said in the Mandela affect link)?

But isn't it far more likely that you came over from a different universe at some point in the last few decades?

The Mandela Effect bollocks was invented so that some pricks would always have an excuse if they were wrong in a pub argument.

There's some sense to it.

In Independence Day, lots of people think Will Smith puts a cigar in his mouth and says "Welcome to Urf" because it fits the emotional core of the scene. He doesn't actually do that at all. Same thing happens with the words Darth Vader uses to tell Luke's he's his father.

Well the "Luke, I am your father" thing was probably people changing it because everyone's like "omg, he was luke's father" shit. It's not a "Mandela Effect", it's just ignorance.

Yea with this I just assumed people mis-remembered the quote and it caught on since not everyone has seen the movies enough to quote them word from word.

Wasn't it referenced like that in the Simpsons? That usually fucks with how people remember stuff.

just the whole concept of this is hilarious. people as unobservant children didn't notice how a name was spelled and so as they aged mentally assume/falsely recollect that it would be spelled with the most typical spelling. and the idea of being mistaken on something they thought they were "sure" of somehow necessitates a parallel universe with THE MOST ARBITRARY DIFFERENCE OF ALL TIME

like i know people probably don't believe this (jesus this probably just wishful thinking ppl are idiots) but this is one of the most pointless, arbitrary internet phenomena of all time

EDIT I will add tho that i remember when i actually noticed the spelling, i was in the library in my elementary school looking at the books and that caught my attention. so yeah, i guess it's pretty unusual and i could see how so many people falsely remembered but this all happened as a child still reading the books. and also i watched the pbs show and on the guide for tv the font was much more legible than the cursive font on the books.

but still. u remembered shit wrong. u were not as observant of a little kid as me. deal w it

He had it on him in a cigar tube. He says "now that's what I call a close encounter" with it in his mouth. People just jumbled up the details.

In you the last few as the last two, then no.
