I posted a few videos a few pages back LINK, which i still believe are a very good example regarding not seeing the curvature off the earth.
On a side note as well and a question, why is it when planes are cruising at high altitude, they do not make course, corrections, dipping downwards to account for the curvature off the earth?
Because you chose to, along with a lot of others, turning a potentially interesting discussion into an orgy of badgering and name-calling.
It just follows the most common thread pattern here on the [NEW!] [IMPROVED!] ATS.
Maps based on the projection are promoted by UNESCO, and they are also widely used by British schools.
You can't make a post without throwing an insult can you?
Even though many times I have stated though out this thread I find this topic intresting and am not looking to change people beliefs or anything, I just want to discuss the topic and ask questions.
You are obviously not intrested in doing that and seem hell bent on pushing your beliefs on others, so based on that i see no point in even discussing this topic with you.
Another part of the flat earth theory that I also found interesting, and which also lead me down a path were I discovered some new information, new information is always good
Why is this map still being used until this day in text books etc?
This map is the Gall–Peters projection
Also, why is the UN using a map off the flat earth?
I will admit I have a bias, a little to main stream science, but this in not due to that I don't believe them, but more to the fact that of were it comes from and how we are taught from the moment we go to school that this is it and this is fact and everything else is wrong.
Well, a flat earth would contradict most of what we know of physics, and if it were true the universe wouldn't exist.
Gravity tends to pull things into spheres and spirals, whether it be the water going down my drain, the formation of planets, or the formation of solar systems and galaxies. You don't see many "flat" objects.
I can see with my own eyes the moon is spherical, why would the earth form differently?
I have been to the other side of the world many times, where does this "edge" of the flat earth exist? Wouldn't I have seen it cruising at high-altitudes?
I have seen orbiting satellites hundreds of times at night. How would they orbit a flat object?
Do I think for a minute you believe this? No. Who are you working for and what is the purpose of this nonsense exercise?
