I don't really follow your point with those posts.  If nothing else, it shows the impossibility of a globular map ever matching a flat disk map.  The other shows air traffic going from LA to Australia, in a very loose s shape (more like a low peaked sine curve).  Both ideas are against FET.
markjo, what force can not pass through a solid or liquid?
Magnetism for one and electric is the other.

Another invisible thread. And EiaS, your videos are pretty good evidence for a flat Earth. In the one, it shows that trying to turn the Earth into a plane leads to massive distortions, such that Australia was significantly smaller than Greenland and Africa much much smaller than North America (when it's 1.24 times bigger IRL). And the second video shows airplanes traveling along the Great Circle--the most fuel-efficient way to travel across a globe.

Australia, the country, is not bigger than North America. In fact it is about 1/3 the size.
Aether is the  characteristic of action or inaction of charged  & noncharged particals.

What? I don't think anybody claimed that. The various FE maps don't, and I certainly didn't. I said Africa is larger than North America. And while I didn't do the maths for Australia/Greenland, I assumed it was safe because Australia's big enough to be a 'continent' while Greenland's just a really big island.

Really sorry. My distracted brain replaced Africa with Australia. Apologies.
