Sorry I had to do this, but it had to be done.  Go on, it's 100% accurate.  Look up national landmarks on it, they're all there.  Look up major cities, they are all there as well.  Look up streets you know.  They are also there.  Look up a satellite image of your own and your friend's houses, they are all there!

Oh, and it rotates.  360 degrees, no matter which direction you rotate it from.    Now, if the Earth was a flat disc, then there would be great distortion at the poles, where the Earth would have to be "Stretched" so that the entirety of the planet could fit on the top side.  Think about that.

Discuss.

If I had a lot of time on my hands, I could probably create exactly the same thing - just based on the map of a flat Earth. I think a round-Earther would call that a "fake", so I guess flatearth.google.com would prove just as much or as little as earth.google.com does.

You're basing that statement on the assumption that a round Earth exists, and that a flat Earth somehow has to be a projected representation of that round Earth. In that case, you'd of course be right, if we tried to take a round Earth and stretch it onto a flat surface, there would be distortions, as occur in any map projection. But since the Earth is already flat, it does not have to be distorted to fit onto a flat surface.

I'll just number the points to make this simpler:

1)  You believe that every world government, a host of historical figures, and independents like Google are all colaborating in a conspiracy theory to hide the truth about the world's true form, from what I gather?  Present evidence of their motives and evidence for this.

2)  If you call something 'faked' present your own evidence for otherwise.  I could present you with a collossal mountain of evidence, and you would still reject it all, saying that it is all faked.  How about you conduct the classical experiments which determined the Earth was round, and see for yourself.

3)  Think open mindedly about this.  If you are at all serious about this, then you have the obligation to prove it to yourself with absolute certainty.  For example, get a plane ticket to travel around the world.  Take a compass with you.  If you are going in a Westerly direction for 15 hours, North for 3, and South for 2, but never East, and somehow ended up where you started, would that prove to you that the Earth is round?  It is not that expensive anymore.
