It's easy to complain that Australia has been moved from its position on a 16th century map (where it hardly appears) to a 21th century map, but let's be a bit more adult about it.

Let's look at maps made within the last 50 years or so, since the introduction of electronic timepieces and satellite positioning and the like, when precise longitude and latitude can be measured (not long before 1960 it was discovered that, owing to an old fashioned timepiece the latitude of Greenland's coast had been mismeasured, with the result that a correction made with an Accutron watch gave that island a couple of thousand more square miles) and we see no movement in Australia.  The longitude and latitude of its coastal points line up appropriately with the rest of the map.

On the other hand, the FEers have yet to nail down The Edge - y'know, The Dropping-Off of the flat surface of the Flat Earth.  It should be in every direction if you go far enough.  We get a lot of lame excuses of why they haven't found it, but none of these are convincing any more, especially since it is obvious that Antarctica does not surround the rim of the planet.  It is the FE map that hasn't been convincing.

The Narc might reply when he's finishes his "Jailhouse Rock", or wherever he disappears to every so often.

They just officially moved Australia just recently.

You have no evidence for your stupid claims of miles of movement or even your 600 feet of movement!

And "they" have not "officially moved Australia" one inch. Australia might be moving at the  ;D rapid rate  ;D of 2.7 inches a year, but "they" aren't doing it.

If that's what you think, no wonder you are a Flat Earther,  you wouldn't recognise the truth if it jumped up and bit you.

The Flat Earth Society couldn't place Australia within miles, what a joke! You can't even decide which of about four maps the so-called Flat Earth might look like.

Don't you think it's a huge waste your valuable time worrying about a little bit of movement of Australia when you have so many massive problems with you own maps?

Still, it's good for laughs, and you are making it look more ridiculous with every post.

In case you didn't bother reading my post, here in is again with citical bits highlighted more!

What I said was that "they" have not moved Australia, and no-one has moved Australia or any other country.

Now, just to prove that you are not pulling rubbish out of you head please provide the sources for your claims in your OP that
"Every few years, RET keeps changing the position of Australia on their map. 600 feet this way, a couple miles this way, sometimes moving it hundreds of miles - just to try to keep it accurate with the round earth theory.
Your exact words!
Now, once again give your sources or just admit that you fabricated your whole story.

I have explained the 600 feet, but you have never justified your claims. Or as they say in the classics, put up, or shut up.
