I used to believe that if you dug under ground a little bit that you would see space

I remember watching a television show about how SOMEDAY the sun would turn into a red giant and burn the Earth up.

Well, I thought that meant like NEXT WEEK, so for days I kept glancing at the sun through squinted eyes to see if it was getting bigger.

When I was little I used to belive that the earth was it. No space at all.

One of the weirder things I genuinely believed in was a physical border between the world of the imagination and the world of the 'real'. This border was a sharp division (like the equator or something) which sat on the very outmost edge of the universe and represented a border which mankind could never cross.

I used to believe if you could build a spaceship with a warp drive, a person could jump to the border between the two realities and put their hand through the curtain, to the other side. Everything that existed in 'unreality' lay on the other side... with effort you could bring people and objects back through the curtain - (they were unable to cross through on their own free will)- things like the animated Transformers on TV, or the imaginary heroes from books that only existed in your mind.

Later on this would evolve into my working definition of the afterlife for many years.

I used to think that the moon was just a reflection of Earth. I used to stand at my window at night and wave upwards, thinking that my mirror-image would be waving back down at me.

I used to think that up in outer space the sun was a gigantic baby that never grew up like in Teletubbies.

I used to believe that crescent moons were the bits of fingernail I bit off my thumb that had inexplicably floated into the sky, and glowed there to remind me not to bite my nails.

My brothers told me that the moon would become a crescent because the army was shooting at it. (we were army-brats)

My younger brother used to be afraid of shooting stars. This is because he thought that if you eyed a shooting star, it would actually shoot you with a gun!

I used to think that all the planets looked like what they were named after. Mars looked like a giant candy bar, Pluto was a cartoon dog, etc. Some were tough, like Saturn, (which I eventually figured out looked like a car). You can imagine what Uranus looked like...

By seeing small circle at the bottom of the World Map representing the Poles, i used to believe that astronauts go out of earth through that hole.

When I was a child I believed that if I fell off the earth I would end up on the Plante of The Apes.

When I was young, I thought that the chirping sound that we always heard outside at night was the sound of the stars twinkling. Only later I found out it was really crickets chirping.

My 3 year old niece wanted to know what color her swing set was. She was told it had been red but that the sun faded it out. She tells the sun every day that her favorite color is purple in the belief that the sun will change it to that color.

I used to believe that the stars were holes in the roof of the world, and the light shining through the holes was the light from heaven.

I have no idea why, but I thought that the constellation Orion would shoot us with arrows when he was in the sky. We were safe as long as we were in a building or vehicle; but when we got out of the car to go into our house, it was risky. I used to anxiously watch the stars whilst my dad unlocked the door, hoping we'd get inside in time.

I was born in 1967 and my Dad worked on the Saturn V so I remember hearing all about how man landed on the moon. For many years, when people would talk about seeing the "man in the moon" I would look really hard to see his silouette sticking off the side!

until i was 7 or 8, i believed i could see the earth spinning on its axis. i eventually learned it was just the clouds moving, and was utterly devastated.

I used to think that the moon was the sun when it was sad. So, whenever night came, I would feel bad for the moon, because I thought it was sad or scared!
