The Flat Earth Map

I came across this earlier on and I just had to share.

The Hilarious Secret About the Flat Earth Map
But back to the flat earth map. The map that flat earthers accept as a model of REALITY of life on earth and use as a 'model' for all of their thought experiments and graphic models, is merely an Azimuthal Projection Map! If you cannot see the incredible hilarious irony of this fact, I’ll explain it in more detail. Flat earthers REJECT a round earth, and claim that the earth is flat. Yet in thousands of years of belief in flat earth, despite knowing virtually EVERY distance between points on the planet, despite almost every one of these points having a known GPS coordinate such that even children can engage in playing an adventure game called ‘Geocaching’ where people will place specific items at specific GPS points around the earth and people use GPS to find these items, the BEST model of reality that flat earthers can come up with… is based on a GLOBE!!!

To make this even more hilarious, they also claim, as we mentioned previously, that the UN patrols all 60,0000 of the ‘ice rim’ of Antarctica in order to keep people from discovering the truth that the earth is flat. As evidence of this conspiracy and deception, they point to the symbol of the UN, and say that the UN uses a flat earth map as their symbol as a sort of 'hiding it in plain site' joke on humanity.

But what flat earthers MUST not be able to recognize, is that it’s not that the symbol of the UN is a flat earth, but that THEIR map is an Azimuthal Projection Map, as is the UN Symbol! Even the Wikipedia Entry for Azimuthal Projection Map uses both a current 'flat earth model' map and a UN symbol and describes them both as being examples of an azimuthal projection map! One can't take them seriously when Wikipedia even shows their flat earth map and calls it what it is.

This makes 100% of their thought experiments utterly and completely worthless because you cannot envision correct thought experiments using a model that is horribly flawed from the beginning. For instance, they hypothesize experiments of how the sun could rotate in the 'dome' above a flat earth to create the time zones that we see on earth. However, with distances horribly distorted, and New Zealand as big as the United States, it makes this thought experiment an exercise in eye-rolling hilarity on the many ways the thought experiment is fundamentally in error, rather than a proof of the feasibility of flat earth having the current time zones that it does.

The irony and hilarity of the flat earth model just keeps getting richer and richer the more you look into their ridiculous and hilarious claims that flat earth is reality, simply because it seems that way. Well, if you know anything at all, even their own MAP is not even a map of flat earth! That should tell you how incredibly untenable and ridiculous even the most basic of their claims are, and that these people should not be taken seriously when they can’t even produce the most basic of foundational models... without first using a globe!

You do make it difficult to form an opinion about you. But most times, I wish you would just brush your fur :)
