My theory is that Mandela actually did die in prison & a body double took his place. Has President Mandela's DNA ever been tested against any of Mandela's known relatives?

Are there any particular reason why you feel the need to tarnish the legacy of a great man like Nelson Mandela ? 

Even in prison he was a very well known person and when he got out his family and friends would surely have noticed that it wasn't him, don't you think ?

I'm not trying to tarnish his legacy. It's like if Bruce Wayne died, someone has to take up the mantle of Batman, Gotham needs a Batman just like the world needed a Nelson Mandela so someone took up the mantle.

Yes I do think so but again the world needed Nelson Mandela so they kept quiet for the greater good "theoretically".

Because Ed did American Family Publishers, not Pubisher's Clearing House that's why

Could be true or wrong, but if so many people collectively remember things the same way then there might be something happening> 

The problem is they don't collectively remember something the same way, they don't remember until someone mentions it and then they mis-remember.  Example - the Berenstain Bears, the authors name has always been BerinstAin.  Someone was telling me about some youtube videos that proves the mandalla effect is not real, haven't seen the videos but the examples I have heard about are just poor memory or misread words, habits like reading the first letter and last letter and filling in the blank with expectations, like Berenstein because that has been heard a lot or is more common.

AND why would the sculptor sculpt the thinker with his hand on his head instead of his chin?  That doesn't even make sense.

It's a popular phrase much used in other places ever since.  Hence, everyone "knows" what she says, even though most (like me) have never seen the Disney film ..... and even if they have seen it, their memories have been over-written by what they have since heard was said ;)    

I think this encapsulates the "effect" quite well.  Now, expose that individual's memory to the memories of hundreds, thousands or millions by way of surfing the net daily and voila', subtle but constant, ongoing changes are made.

I fell for the Mandela Effect a few years ago but found it was either chalked up to bad memory or could be explained. For example

Jif/Jiffy: There is Jif Peanut Butter, Jiffy Popcorn and Jiffy Cornbread mix.

Henry the Eighth Portrait: It's clear he is holding a pair of gloves. It's easy one can mistake it for a turkey leg based on the color and angle in which he is holding the gloves.

50/51 states: This one is misunderstood by the fact Washington DC often gets characterized as a state when its an area within Maryland/Baltimore. It's just like how the Vatican is considered a city within the city of Rome.
