When I looked at the globe, I used to believe for a long time that the world (and us) was actually inside the giant blue sphere and the blue sphere was the blue sky.

After reading a book to the class about the solar system, one of my daycare kids believed the sun was going to blow up within days and Earth would be gone. I found out from his concerned parents the next day and it took alot of convincing to make him think otherwise.

When I was younger I used to believe that each part of the world had a different sun. So the sun in Africa was different from the sun in Europe and when I drew pictures I would draw 5 or more suns in the sky.

When I was young I didn't know we lived on a planet or about gravity. Then one day my grandma told me we lived on the planet Earth and how gravity worked. As soon I realized that Earth was just a ball floating in the middle of space I was too scared to move. I thought that my movement would cause the "ball" to drop instantly and we would all die. I would also walk around holding on to things since Earth was a sphere and I was scared of falling off the planet.

Up until I was about 12 I thought why it becomes night time is because of the moon blocking the sun (obviously that would really be a solar eclipse)

As a child I believed that the earth was an electron, the sun was the center and the solar system an atom, and continued until the universe was like a set of molecules until several universes forming a human body ..... Sometimes I still think the same thing

This is my co-worker's sister-in-law and niece. He said that for the longest time, and sadly well into their adulthoods, they believed that the sun and the moon were actually the same object, but that it was just darker at night.

I used to believe that when the sun sets, it means it ran out of batteries, and it recharges during the night.

I also believed the sun ran on batteries.
