I used to beleive that the moon was earth and I could never understand how we could be standing on earth and also be seeing the earth in the sky. I was just a little confused. =) age 3-6
When I was about 4 or 5 or so, on the way back home from school, I'd quite often stare at the sun for ages, because I thought it was a hole in the sky (if you really stare at it, it looks that way). I was a stupid child in some respects, and I wear glasses to this day - I'll probably always wonder if the two things are linked.
I used to believe that when you wished upon a star ... your wish would come true. Like one time I wished for a "My little pony" . The next morning I was sad to find my wish hadnt come true .
When I was younger I used to believe that spinning a globe is what caused the earth to spin. I was always very cautious not to let myself of anyone make it spin too fast- otherwise we'd all get dizzy and maybe fall off. I guess I had a lot of faith that no one else was spinning their globe too fast either!
My sister and I believed that we lived inside the earth and that when they sent shuttles into space someone would have to go up on a giant ladder to patch the hole in the sky.
For a time as a child, I was totally convinced that I had been to a city on the planet Neptune. The clearest memory I had of the place was how at each end of the main street, atop a pole like a telephone pole, there was an array of horns, resembling loudspeakers like I'd seen at football stadiums. I wondered what those horns were for. I never heard any sound come from them.
I used to believe the shadows on the moon were actually spacemen casting shadows on the ground.
I thought the moon was Alaska when I was little after seeing a documentary about the State and how cold and snowy it was all the time. I just couldn't figure out why it moved around so much.
when i was young i thought that a giant made the world slowly spin!
When I was quite young I used to believe that stars really had five points, and that a falling star could fall out of the sky and stab me. I was terrified of going outside at night for fear of being impaled by such a star.
I used to believe that the moon was a street light that had come off its stalk and was floating around like a balloon in the sky. This explained why the moon shifted around so much in the sky.
My aunt has told me that when I was a young child she mentioned something to me about the crickets chirping at night. I was astounded. Apparently I said to her, "Oh. I always thought that was the stars!"
I used to believe that stars chirped because they would twinkle simultaneously to crickets chirping
I had a friend when I ( and she ) were 14, argued vociferously over the fact that she believed the Earth had four suns. Her argument hinged on the fact that 'How else could the sun in Spain be so much hotter than England?' No amount of reasoning would convince her otherwise. I wonder if she has changed her mind yet?
I used to believe there were more than just one moon, in fact a good amount that were stored somewhere in the sky (such as a bin) when they weren't being used. THEY ONLY COME OUT WHEN IT IS THEIR TURN!
i used to belive that when they went to the moon they could woal around the whole thing and it was like a mile around, be cause it looked so small from earth
I believed for the longest time that that huge fireworks couldn't just explode in the sky. That wouldn't do it. I really believed that they had to hit a star before they could explode. I was amazed at how fast the fireworks reached them.
I use to believe that the Sun and the Moon were the same thing - with the Sun on one side and the Moon on the other.
I was shocked in 1st grade when they told me there was no face on the moon. I hate to say this, guys, I still see it. I used to believe this was because the moon was a person.
I USED TO BEILIEVE THAT ANIMALS CAME FROM PLUTO BECAUSE THERE SPEICIES AND I THOUGHT WE WERE MONKEY THAT TURND INTO CAVE MEN THAT TURNED INTO HUMANS!
