I was about 4 when my mother told me the world was round. I then had this picture of a circle of terraced housed floating in space, with the sweet shop in the middle.
When I was in kindergarten, I'd walk home from my bus stop every day BUT stop at a large rock and talk to it, telling it all about my day and my deepest, most secret feelings. I did this the whole year and thought it was my best friend.
after i learned that the globe was spherical, i was very confused. I thought that the moment iget to the poles (north/south) i would definately fall, and i wondered how ocean waters never fall in space.
When I was a little girl I used to believe that Islands floated and were attached to the bottom of the ocean with a bath chain and plug
I used to believe that the world was God's snow globe, and that that we all lived in this snow globe...when I would look up at the sky I saw that it was round, so I knew it had to be a snow globe..So I never wanted to do anything bad because I knew that he was watching
I used to believe that the creek and wooded area behind my house led to a far away land where magical things went.
That creek was a special place to me in my childhood, we went there often with the neighbor kids and played in it. It was my own wilderness oasis.
I used to believe that rocks could breathe because when you put the ones with cracks in them in a bucket of water, bubbles would come out of them.
I remember telling my mom and dad, and them saying "No, thats not right." And I said "Yes! I saw it with my own eyes!"
I used to believe that hills were made by sleeping dinosaurs.
when i was a kid my mom and dad told us mountains were dinosaurs and one day they would wake up and shake off all of the trees.and of course being the gullible little kid me and my brother were we believed it.
when i have kids i am gonna say the same exaxt thing.
i used to believe that all the people stayed inside the round earth because if we stayed on the earth then there are chances that we might fall down(because of its round shape!!)
i believed fresh bales of hay left to dry in the fields were cow cemeteries
I used to beleive that God painted sunsets everynight as was an artist like me. I always thought snow was his way of wiping the canvas clean too..
A few years ago when I was in Grade 4, I used to believe that the sun would come up from a little pond in America and when it was time to rise, it would return to that little pond. Pretty dumb, hey?!
My crochety great aunt who my older sister and I couldn't stand used to live next door. To try and stop her from coming over, my sister used to make me dig holes for her to cover with leaves in the hopes that she would fall down one never to be seen again. I guess our depth perception was lacking because these traps were about two feet deep maximum. However, me sister would order me to stop digging periodically and feel the bottom of the pit to make sure it wasn't getting warm, as our mother had shown us a Time/Life book with a picture of the center of the earth and we didn't want to spring a geyser of hot molten lava.
Because Of every Beach i ever went to, there was always a hill going up to it before going down to the beach, i used to believe that there was water behind every hill, only until i was old enough to walk up the hills near my house, to be confronted by horses and more fields :(
When I was child, I used to believe if I dig in the yard, I can go the opposite country.So,I tried to dig with my friends.But I never could leave my house.
i used to believe that if you dug deep enough you would reach the other side of the earth. I also beleiveds that the cetnre of the earth was full of fire (not unlike a campfire) that you have to avoid otherwise you'd get burned.
I used to think that instead of living ON the earth, that we lived Inside of the earth and that the sky was the earths shell. One day I asked my sister how rockets got into outerspace without damaging the "shell of the earth" (the sky!). She was confused, but finally figured out what I was thinking. When she told me we lived on the outside and not inside of the earth I was completely in shock! Then she told me there were just rocks and lava on the inside and it just blew my mind!
i used to believe that you could fall of the earth. i thought that if you kept walking in a straight line you could either follow the worl round the bend or jump off.
I thought that desert islands, and indeed any island, just floated on the surface of the sea without moving. In other words it just bobbed there, rather than being connected to the sea bed in any way.
