They are not the shortest route between two points on a globe? How is that? They are not "straight" lines between two points on that globe?

What does he need to do to make them great circle lines then?

That is not a globe, that is Google Earth.

Is his globe not an accurate representation of Earth?

It is the shortest route between two points on a globe.

mea culpa - i admit " longitude was a typo "

but his lines are still not great circles



The lines don't follow latitude lines either, only one kind of does.

And is Google Earth not an accurate representation of globe Earth? Apparently not, otherwise there would be no difference between a great circle route, and the shortest line between two points, on it.

I think it's more likely that the OP here is a disinfo agent, and that after the breakaway civilization that goes underground and reemerges after nuclear Armageddon and world population culling plagues scour the globe for decades....
That the remaining lower class barbarians are pretty much "reset" and on their way back to caveman days...
What better mental "reset" then to push the concept of "flat earth"...
It pretty much erases with it, all other concepts involving reason and "re-traps" us in that flat premise where everything else would have to be re-explored through millennia of a new cycle of civilization.

Watch the movie ZARDOZ for further explanation of this if you aren't grasping what in saying.

Regarding the last video...I made it to the 13 minute mark before wanting to pull my hair out. Does he not realize that the force of 900mph to the East on the plane, is also 900mph East to the runway, so relative to each other they are not moving only the plane is.

It's like if I have a semi truck moving East down the freeway at 70mph, I'm in the back of the trailer flying my drone I can go North, South, East, West all at the same speed relative to the inside of the trailer. It's like he is saying the drone in this case is flying outside the trailer. He is using a space plane not bound to the earth. I'm no scientist...but even rudimentary logic invalidates what he is saying.

Always good for a laugh though.

ETA: Oh I see he does talk about the fly in a car, but um it doesn't have anything to do with air, the earth is a sealed container, like the trailer. Everything contained within is moving at the same speed so it has a speed of 0 in relation to everything else inside unless some other force is added, gravity, engine, whatever.
