When I was about 4 some one told me the moon was made of cheese and I believed it until my teenage years. Because I never really questiond it too much. I also never understood how the space men brought back moon rocks if it were made of cheese. So I conviced my self that part of the moon was made of rocks and part is made of cheese. I figured out the truth Around High school.
I used to believe that humans beings lived on every single planet of the solar system. When I found out we live on earth only I thought 'oh the universe isn't large at all!'
When I was about 7 or 8 I remember being out on the school field and looking up at the sky and wondering what it looked like from space. I had this image of a blue ball with all the oceans and continents, but with a big fried egg splattered across it. The yolk was the sun and the white was all the clouds.
The belief didn't last all that long but it was incredibly vivid and I still remember it now.
I still don't like fried egg very much either.
I used to think that the planets were really expensive airplanes, and they all had rings which were the decks to the plane. I couldn't wait until I was older and rich enough to travel on a planet. And I thought everyone would go out on the decks as we sailed through the sky, to have drinks and snacks.
My daughter (who is currently 5) believes that when the moon is in anything other than in it's full stage that someone broke the moon
I used to think the Earth rotated really really fast and that we just didn't notice because of our atmosphere. I thought that's how gravity worked too - that we were stuck to the ground because of the spinning
Shortly after I got my first pair of glasses (I was 7), I woke up at night and looked out the window to see the night sky FILLED with big luminous globes of light. I was convinced it was an alien invasion until I put my glasses on to see better and realized they were stars.
I used to believe that the world, Earth, was enclosed in glass, like one of those snow globes.
When i was a little kid i thought that the sun was following me when i was moving, because i always could see it
When I was very young, about 3 years old I thought the sun and the moon were different sides of the same object. I guess I never noticed that sometimes they were in the sky at the same time.
My friend believed that when she looked at the moon, she would see Australia, because the moon was just the mirror image of the earth.
I used to believe that Star Trek was an actual part of the Space Program, that was just using more Advanced Equipment than the Apollo moon shots.
Tell 10 years old I really believed that the moon was made of cheese, and that it is very easy to get there. I also believed that if you jump high enough, you can fly. I had great moments jumping and thinking that, I still remember the feeling of almost flying, great imagination can make you feel wonderful sometimes-
I used to believe the moon was the sun during nighttime.
When I was 3 I had my own explanation about day and night: The earth was a tinny ball into a giant's mouth. When the giant's was yawned, the light was coming into his mouth and it was day, otherwise it was night !
I used to think the stars were the angels windows. Thats how they could watch us. Sometimes I stll think that.
I told my brother the Moon was actually a giant's head. That two giants were battling and one lopped off the head of the other and threw it into the sky, and that's why you see a face on the Moon. He believed it for a couple hours, until our Dad interfered.
I USED TO BELIEVE THAT THE MOON EXISTED FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF EATING ANY SIBLINGS THAT WOULD FIGHT WITH EACH OTHER.
I used to belive that if you travelled up the outer space, you would in the end come up from the water at a beach in annother universe
I used to believe that my parents once took me to the moon on vacation. We piloted our own spacecraft, and I was very proud over this accomplishment. A great dissapointment when the teachers and kids in kindergarden didn't believe me....
