When I was about six, my father showed me a picture of Jesus and told me, "This is Jesus, you are suppossed to love him", and I thought to myself, "But, he's not even attractive."

I used to believe God looked either Jafar from Disney's Alladin, an Indian man, or (duh) Jesus. I'm still only able to picture God as one of those. I also thought that The Antichrist was a guy who was actually shaped like 666, and not a human.

For some reason - possibly because of being told that God was "up above" us - when I was small, my mental image of God was that he was a cloud. Not that he was ON a cloud, he was an actual cloud. A big one. With a face. The cloud was also, for some reason, pale green. It looked very friendly, though.

... I'm twenty-seven now and I still can't help kind of picturing him that way.

When I was eight years old, my Vacation Bible School teacher talked about "giving your life to Jesus": as literal-minded as I was, the idea that Jesus wanted me to commit suicide for him scared the pants off me!

When I was about eight or nine, I was mystified by Psalm 23 - "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want". The all important comma was not apparent to me then, and I developed a sort of weird predestination as a result. I felt that if you were good, and God-fearing then you are allowed to exist without divine interference. Further, if you were fully developed, you'd just not need to bother Him. Which, very sadly, was the exact opposite of what I felt right then.

When I was about 8 I temporarily believed (well... had a theory, anyway) that there was a god for religion. Ie up in the sky there were several gods such as the christian god, allah, shiva, buddha (I think I thought buddha was a god then).

When I was little I attended a religious kindergarten..Everyday our teachers would sing a song and play the piano and call it "One of God's songs" ..so one day at home my mom overheard my friend tell me that he should be able to play with a certain toy of mine because "God made it, he makes everything".. and I replied "No he does NOT..all God does is write piano music!"

As a child in Brazil, someone told me that every night a spirit/saint would come to check on me while I slept.
I imagined her being a slave, with a long dress and wearing a headdress, and being all white.
I made sure I slept on time so she could check up on me, I was afraid I'd make her angry if I didn't sleep on time and she couldn't check on me.
Now being a firm Atheist, I still wonder about this ghost/saint...;)

When I was a kid, I used to believe that since Jesus was born on Christmas and died on Easter, one of his miracles was that he aged 33 years in 4 months.

I used to think that the Three Stuges were the Three Wise Men. When my dad told me some of the stupid things the stuges did, I thought it was pretty weird...

When I was little, I thought the nerve twitching you would get in bed at night was your guardian angel telling you to move over... so I always did.

I used to believe that the thunder was made when the angels were bowling, the lightning from strobe lights at their bowling alley, and the rain was Jesus crying because we sinned too much.
