That there was a god

the stupidest thing I believe when I was a kid was that God AND Santa were real

For the record, we already have an Atheism/Theism thread (I shouldn't have to post a link). Please keep comments relating to said thread in that thread. Don't use a new thread as a chance to branch out. Before you say "But that WAS the stupidest thing I believed because it's not true and (reasons)," please. Just about every reason you have belongs in the Theism and Atheism section.

Anyway. The stupidest thing I believed as a kid was the "step on a crack, and you'll break your mother's back" or however that went. I'm 20 and I still avoid stepping on sidewalk cracks.

I'm 18 and I do the same thing, but it's more of an OCD thing for me. I never believed that stepping on cracks would actually break my mother's back.

But I did believe that Santa was real until I was in 5th grade. My mom finally had to tell me that he wasn't because my younger sister, who was in 2nd grade at the time, had already stopped believing in him.

That my life was a test, and I was being monitored by aliens to determine if I was 'worthy' to be woken up and part of the 'real' world.  Kind of Matrix-ey, I guess, but with aliens :)

It still hasn't been disproven, I suppose!

terry, santa is real.

he was on my roof, I heard the clip clop.

anyways, the weirdest thing I used to believe was I could breathe underwater.  so glad to be alive ._.

also that, umm, uh, well, besides the breathing underwater thing (again, loooove breathing...) I was pretty good.

Light chaser, you should grow up. He was not on your roof.

That whenever the sidewalk was all messed up and the slabs were tilted, it was because of "The Sidewalk Monster.", also that some type of monster was hanging on the back of my closet door, and if I slept with the door closed, it would kill me. Also when a funnel appeared in the bathtub when the water, I thought it was a dragonfly, I was for some reason afraid of it. I'll think of more later.

A couple other things are that I used to believe that Elephant Ears were actual elephant ears, French Fries were from France, Rain was angels taking a leak, Thunder was God bowling, and some other things.

I admit I was a pretty weird kid...

That my life was a test

I believed for the longest time that life was just a show for me and that everyone around me was placed there just to make my life seem more normal.

he was on my roof, I heard the clip clop.

That was me trying to break into your h--you're right, it was Santa Claus.

There was one point that, although I didn't really believe it, I thought it to be more than likely that we actually live in the Matrix-style place where we are not actually awake or doing things.  I think it was more that I wished it was that interesting though.
I also used to think that the middle ages was less than 100 years ago.. I was less than intelligent.
