When I was young I used to believe that there was a huge, white bearded god in the sky who saw everything I did and judged me on my behavior. If I was bad he would torture me forever and if I was good I would be sitting in church singing forever. I wanted to be his best friend.

Because I was told that God was everywhere and watches you all the time, I felt uncomfortable going to the washroom. Sometimes Id even say out loud, Dont look at me now!

When I fiirst heard about Pontious Pilate. I thought his last name was spelled "pilot". This was also compounded by the fact that this was at a time when I had not yet learned about the Wright Brothers in school and how the airplane was not invented until around the 1920's.
This made me think that Pontious was some guy that flew an airplane.

I always heard people say that "God is inside you all the time". So when my tummy growled and made a that springy noise, I used to think it was God on a pogo-stick.

If you know the Sims games, I used to think that God was playing and we were all just Sims.

If you don't, it's a computer game where you make people and control them.

I used to think Nuns never had to pee...there were no bathrooms for "Nuns" and "Priests." We found a private teacher restroom one day in 8th grade when we helped to put away supplies-mystery solved!

When I was younger, I always used to believe that Monks would marry Nuns, and that NO ONE ELSE could do so. This also supplied me with a reason as to why they dressed so funny. Little did I know that to marry was a big no-no for these religious people.

The Adam and Eve story confused me a bit. I was pretty sure that if we all came from the same two people then we were inbred.

Once when I was probably about 3 or 4, I was at daycare where my older sister and her friend happened to mention God. I asked who God was and they told me all about a big man in the sky who created everything. For some reason, I thought of one of the Bananas in Pajamas wearing an angel costume in the sky with a glittery wand- I have no idea why! It took me years to stop picturing God as B1!!
