A lot of them haven't. The ancient Greeks knew that the world was not flat, they didn't all believe it was round, some thought it a kind of circular spiral, but that knowledge was lost during the Dark Ages. By 1500, many educated people believed that the world was round, but it was not until the 1800's that that knowledge became widespread. this is mainly due to people who went against the beliefs of the time, generally got themselves killed. It is possible that the ancient Hebrews always knew that the world was round: Isaiah 40:22 says "he sits enthroned above the circle of the earth"

They stopped believing when they came to realise that there were no witches, that nobody can perform 'magic' or cast 'curses' upon others. People were beginning to understand science a lot more.

"Don't stop believing", a complete sentence, is in the present intensive tense and the imperative mood.

Some kids never stop believing. Some kids never believe. A lot of it has to do with how they are raised, and what they are taught.

Many people still do. But the number has gradually decreased over the last 500 years or so.
