I used to believe that the moon was a giant mirror and, if I had a powerful enough telescope, I could see myself waving at myself.

For the longest time, I thought that when I saw the moon in the daytime, that what I was really seeing was the other side of the world. I assumed that was where the Chinese and Africans lived. Never occurred to me how to get there, though...

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....

i used to believe that each country was its own "world" or "planet". but, i never thought about how one really got around between countries; i think i had a vague notion that aeroplanes were like spaceships.

when I was young, I thought that the shadows on the moon were the faces of people that had died, and that that was where you went when you died.

I used to believe that we lived inside the world, not on it. I thought there was the outer layer of the earth behind the sky, and once asked my dad how could space shuttles pierce through the thick layer of soil surrounding (!) the sky!

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 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.

I used to believe that the earths rotation meant that we were rolling closer to the sun and someday we will be squished by the sun because we got too close.

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.

I saved a "lava-rock" for years because my dad convinced me after seeing a shooting star that he found it. It wasn't till I was like 20 something and telling the story that it hit me, I was duped... (he even waited for it to cool) lol
