Debate on Antarctic - centred map.
« on: May 09, 2010, 06:51:26 AM »
I think flat earthers never entertain the possibility that Antarctica is in the centre, like this. Please debate.  >:(

And I thought their other map was fucked up!  Also, Parsifal, not seeing why this is in the wrong forum.  He wishes to debate the plausibility of this map versus the others.  And seeing as FE'ers can't agree on a map, why not throw another one into the mix?

Now the FE'ers in the Northern Hemisphere get to see what it's like to see their entire half of the Earth fucked up.


See how it doesn't work?

This is an excellent map. Notice how Australia and South America are not distorted at all. This clearly counters REers claim that the FE map "distorts" countries!

I'd say South America is distorted, it should be taller than that (Supposing "taller" means along the line between the south pole and the edge). But that doesn't matter. In order to disprove the claim that a flat earth distorts countries, you'll have to prove that none of the parts of the map are distorted. A few areas of correct proportions don't help at all.

Representing the earth on a flat plane requires the distortion of some parts of the world. This is exactly what UTM coordinates are for, which I already explained in another post.

Oh, I see, change the title of the thread back again just so they can move it to Q&A. Have the mods got nothing better to do?

Your map won't be seriously considered until you supplement your actual information with two dozen paragraphs of garbled nonsense and make a few personal attacks on people who disagree with you.

On the edge, there must obviously be a "waterwall" that has never been photographed and is guarded by thousands of inbreeding guards who train personal attack-pterodactyls.

And all those people who have been claiming to sail the northwest passage all these hundreds of years must be part of the conspiracy!

They can still have their icewall, it's now just a northerly rather than southerly one. The North West Passage would be pretty much the same on this map too.

religious (comparative more religious, superlative most religious)
   1. Concerning religion.
   2. Committed to the practice of religion.
   3. Highly dedicated, as one would be to a religion.

Seriously? That's quite a reach there. One could just as easily call your apparent dedication to rejection of facts and conspiracy theories religions also.

An "apparent dedication to rejection of facts" is what is otherwise known as the scientific method, and I have no idea which conspiracy theories you are referring to.

Citation please.  Come now Steve, I know it's been a while but you can do better than that.  Especially since (last I knew) you're studying to be a scientist .

Ok just so we're all clear, henceforth, no one is allowed to state that they know something, because that would be religious dogma.

Now, we can get back on to the topic of the thread.

No, because Iceland should be on the map. Look for a country that shouldn't be there.

You rascal - Atlantis is not real! And is it definitely not outside the Pillars of Hercules in the Atlantic.

I knew that's not what Iceland looked like, but I figured Atlantis was too easy, and didn't think it would be that far north.

Clue: You are looking in roughly the right place, but that's not Iceland. Neither is it Atlantis. Try tilting your head to the left...

The only thing I see is a fucked up Greenland and a few islands that shouldn't be there/ distorted.
