...how was the earth formed?...
Somebody got an image in their head that explained something that had always just been that way.
They started telling other people about their idea until it became a wildly successful mass delusion.
Then somebody else did the same thing and so on... leading to the present day earth as 'we' know it.
"...pour out of one vessel into another; and as those old Romans robbed all the cities in the world, we skim the cream of other men's wits, pick the choice flowers of their tilled gardens to set our own sterile plots."
-a Richard Burton
