Globes are maps.

Globes are not flat.

When was the last time you used a globe for navigational purposes.  Check and mate.

I'm guessing that jroa has never seen one of these late 16th-century globes?




Every ship's captain had one in the great cabin for the purpose of... wait for it... navigating!

Sooooooooo, the most relevant example you can find is from 500 years ago?  And people say that EnaG is out of date. lol.

Well, yes, the most relevant example is this old. Because later people came up with mathematically correct rules of presenting a piece of a spherical globe on flat sheet, for easier use, and other rles describing how to convert from flat maps to actual spherical world.

Another example of an accurate conversion from 3D to 2D: technical projects, with orthogonal projections arranged in a specific way. If it is created according to specific rules, it can show every detail of a 3D object on flat sheets. Does it mean that, for example, a wardrobe is 2D? Hell no.

Speaking of hate-tinted glasses.  Youch!

As has been pointed out, a globe is now an unwieldy way to navigate.  That has no bearing whatsoever on its ability to be accurate though.  I am sure you are aware of this, since you seem to be pretty smart.

Good point.  Everyone knows how much fun it is to fold a map.  Why bother carrying those things around if they can carry little balls around instead?

For all the reasons pointed out in this thread.  I know you are anxious to try and make a good point, but preparation is key.

you people are so ignorant its sad. what you people don't understand is that there is no "ICE WALL" surrounding what we know as earth. it has been proven countless times that earth is a sphere yet you people deny all this evidence? look it up!!! there are pictures and videos of human beings IN SPACE. WE HAVE ROVERS ON MARS!!!! WHICH LIKE EARTH IS A ROUND PLANET.
       You claim that there is a giant conspiracy to hide the "fact" that earth is flat, but what exactly would all the governments in the world gain from spending billions of dollars trying to convince everyone that the earth is round? you do realize that the information you receive on your computer you receive from satellites that are currently orbiting earth?

You want everyone to believe that earth is flat? why don't you go find that "ICE WALL" that according to all laws of physics is can't possibly exist and prove it.

no

The point here is that you often make a statement along the lines of, "nobody carries a globe in their pocket, do they? Why do you suppose that is?"

It turns out we do though, don't we?

If you carry Google Earth on your phone, the fact that you are so confused about the shape of the Earth is understandable.  ::)
