When I was about 7 or 8 (I'm 23 now) some friends of my parents owned a flea market. Me and my older sister and my uncle (who is only a year older than me) would all go outside at the back of the flea market and there was nothing there except rocks and red mud. One day we saw dog tracks and my uncle convinced me they were dinosaur tracks and that we had entered Dinosaur Land. So every day we could we would be out there looking for the dinosaurs, we never saw them. And I truly believed until I was old enough to know better that we were in Dinosaur Land. I was so disappointed when I realized the truth. lol

We grew up around lots of canyons, and one in particular has small, shallow holes in the sides. When the family would drive through on a random Sunday drive, my father would tell us the holes were caused by "rock worms". He'd actually pull over so we could roll the window down and listen to them munching the rock - I couldn't ever hear anything, but I'd play along anyway. I didn't figure out they were actually caused by wind erosion until I was about 12.

I know the world is round but used to believe there had to be an end to it somewhere... where was this - and was there a fence there keeping everyone in? I used to think that if you found this fence and climbed over it you would just fall off the end of the world and float in space forever.

When I was about 6 we had a small pine tree in our front yard that my sister and I would always climb. I believed that if I climbed high enough that I would be able to touch the sky. I was disappointed when I did finally get high enough that I was not able to do that!

I used to think that when going up a hill, and you couldn't see sny more of the road because it was on the other side, that we were driving near the end of the world, and were going to fall off, but when we didn't, i came to the conclusion that we just fell into another dimention.

When I was 4 I believed the mountains where actually the skirts of giant ladies who were resting or lying down because they rested during daytime.

I also believed there were giants everywhere, as well as small people (less than one inch) who were always spying what we do, especially in the bathroom.

Before I began kindergarten, I believed the earth was a massive land with lots of giant ponds splashed around here and there. I was absolutely devasted at seeing how small it was on a teacher's globe. I still remember seeing how small the continents were, surrounded by all of the blue, and felt so small and meaningless.

i am from Sri Lanka.
When i was young i had no idea that the earth was a shere.
i thought the sea went and fell like a great waterfall, and that is why we do not see anything beyond the horizon.
also i used to believe that India was at the bottom of this great waterfall

I used to believe that when I looked up to the sky was actually looking at the ocean on the other side of the world (which went hand-in-hand with the fact that I used to believe we lived INSIDE the earth, not on it).

At some point, my Dad must have told me that North was towards our house (because we must've been south of it at the time). But from that point on, I thought that north was toward my home, no matter where I was. At some point, I realized that from my backyard, the house was really East, but I had been living with the unshakeable conviction that this was North for as long as I could remember.

When I was a kid I used to believe we lived inside the earth. When I would look up at the sky I just saw it as the big blue dome that we found ourselves in. I think I didn't discover the actual truth until I was 7 or 8.
