i think when we are younger we believe many things that are not necessarily true and we find out later in life that it is wrong or we no longer believe such a thing.
please feel free to post what you once believe but no longer believe.

I used to think that sex was when two people rolled around in sheets together while drinking wine and sweating. The wine was necessary. At the time it sounded like the most boring thing in the world.

#11 Posted by Fatal (2072 posts) - - Show Bio

I used to believe that children were the future, that we could teach them well but we had to let them lead the way and show them all the beauty they possess inside. That they needed a sense of pride to make things easier, and that their laughter could remind us of how we used to be.
 
Then I stepped into a classroom. :P

Gateway drug for dumb people who, once again, are unable to exhibit self control. I'm not getting into this silly debate though, just saying.

It's too bad it wasn't true. I miss him mightily.

@joshmightbe: That's my point. If you're going to try heroin it's because your an idiot, the weed didn't make you do it.

Remember that "step on a crack, break your mother's back" thing?
 
Yeah. Well my version was this: step on a crack, you fall through and continue to fall into a dark void for all eternity.
 
I was an imaginative child....

I used to believe: 
(when I was about 5-6) that if you jumped high enough on a trampoline you'd crash through the sky and god would catch you. 
 
I still believe: 
Santa Claus is the root of all evil.

When I used to ask my mom how babies were born, she would give me the typical "when two people love each other very much" cop out routine. This only fueled my imagination, and I would envision my pregnant aunt(at the time) dancing a tango with my uncle who I'd imagine biting down on a rose and spinning her around and out popped a baby, from the sky!!
 
It's almost kind of disturbing how many little things you pick up on later in life, like weird habits your parents had that you might've been oblivious too or even the deep rooted meaning of things(my mother explaining to me how it was proper for "young ladies" who wore skirts/dresses to cross their legs when they sat down, despite me thinking it looked funny i.e)

I once believed that a naked Barbie doll was an accurate representation of the nude female form...  Then a friend of mine showed me a hustler and I nearly threw up.
