Google Flat Earth Challenge!
« on: August 14, 2008, 06:23:07 PM »
On google earth, you can see images of every land mass on the planet.  You can compare these images to reality, by looking at places you have been too or photographed.  You can also measure distances.

Now if the Earth is flat, then to fit the continents to the globe, they would have to distort the images, ones at the edges of continents would be compressed radially from the centre.  Try pressing a bit of paper onto the surface of a ball to see how it would distort. 

So the Google Flat Earth Challenge is to find an example of such a distortion. 


Things to look for:

Kinks in rivers and roads

incorrect distances

missing bits of land

curvature of straight features,

anything that is different to ground level observation (post pic from ground level)


Rules: 

Post screenshot and coordinates

No discussing, if you think there's a falacy in the premise of the challenge, make a new thread,

Explain the distortion and the actual appearance, post a pic of the location from ground level if you can.

Distance discrepancies must be compared to an accurate map. 

No low rez zoomed out distortions, of course it's not accurate, it's low rez.  and yes we all see the arctic region looks funny in low rez. 

No beech width differences, they are caused by tides,

No colour differences, its a different day dumbass, you need shape discrepancies. 

No Antarctic centre stuff.  Its low rez coz no-one cares, and you've never been there anyway.




Now go out and find evidence of conspiracy,

Speaking of google earth, they use 2D textures.
Makes sense if the world is 2D...

Yes, it is clearly 2d.


Pls only post your entries.

missing bits of land

I zoomed into the middle of the pacific ocean on google maps and google earth and surprisingly no renders of the ocean's surface were available to see.

So RE is a jigsaw puzzle of FE land mass pieces, and you're okay with that?

I'm asking you to prove that it is.  If the pieces are from a flat earth, then they can't fit on a globe, they have to be distorted.  Show me one of these distortions. 


Please post an entry next time.

Tom did, the oceans.
I have, the poles.

Use the search.

Another victory for FE!!!

North pole is ocean, southpole is low rez.  Oceans != land.  learn to read. 

RE wins.

epic fail for you. 

Post a co-ordinate next time or you fail for life.

You may choose to disclude the oceans from your earth, but FE includes the oceans in theirs.

Oceans don't exist on the surface of your earth?  ???

The dinosaurs would've likely used different construction methods than our own, but your depiction is fairly accurate.

I disagree that's anywhere near accurate.  Postulating steel tool construction would be an entirely new and unexamined theory.  Personally, I think it should be dismissed as sheer speculation.

Sorry, not funny.  Dinosaurs building boats is a tough act to follow.

This is a thinly veiled ruse. Since Tom, narcberry and most other FE'rs know that anything resembling navigation is a guaranteed doom for them, they they will try to derail any test even remotely based on navigation.

They indicate a willingness to do a test that that requires thousands of miles of navigation on the sea, but an incapability to pay for it. They would accept any voyage around the Earth as proof, but, you guessed, no money to do it. They would go to Antarctica, but...

Any experiment that requires only hundreds of miles of travel on land and maybe the use of a moderately priced telescope will scare them senseless, because they cannot say it is beyond their budgets.
