Antarctica Proves The Flat Earth Deception

This website exposes the flat earth deception and proves that the earth is globe shaped.

This page provides proof that Antarctica is a continent on the bottom of the globe earth, not an ice ring that surrounds the flat earth.

Flat earthers show pictures of the supposed ice shelf that encircles the flat earth.

In reality, the pictures that they post are of the Ross Ice Shelf, which is the largest ice shelf of Antarctica, taking up an area of roughly 188,000 sq miles; about 500 miles across and 600 miles long; so it is about the size of France

The nearly vertical ice front to the open sea is more than 370 miles long, and between 50 and 160 ft high above the water surface.

The flat earth Antarctica ice ring is really the Ross Ice Shelf

The continent of Antarctica is circumnavigated as a boating race coarse.

Yachting legend Jon Sanders was the first man to circumnavigate Antarctica, circling the continent twice in 1981 – 1982.

During the voyage, he passed south of the three great capes: Horn, Good Hope and Leeuwin, before rounding Cape Horn a second time. He turned north to Plymouth, UK and returning south around Good Hope and returning to Fremantle.

This voyage was recognized in the Guinness Book of Records through the following records:

  • The first single-handed sailor to remain continuously at sea twice around the world
  • First single-handed sailor to round the five southern most Capes twice on one voyage
  • First single-handed sailor to round the five southern most Capes twice
  • Longest distance continuously sailed by any yacht: 48,510 miles (78,070 km).
  • Longest period alone at sea during a continuous voyage: 419 days: 22 hours: 10 minutes

This proves that Antarctica is a continent that is capable of being circled. Sailing around the ice wall of the flat earth would have taken way more time.

The Antarctica Cup Race proves that it is a continent.

This event is a non-stop race of circumnavigating Antarctica, passing the three most notorious capes on the planet Cape Leeuwin, Cape Horn, Cape Agulhuss.

The record time is 102 days 00 hours 56 minutes 50 seconds for this 16,400 mile circuit of Antarctica.

The Antarctica Cup Ocean Race and the Antarctica Cup Racetrack. This event is a non-stop race of around 14,000 nautical miles – circumnavigating Antarctica passing the three most notorious capes on the planet Cape Leeuwin, Cape Horn, Cape Agulhuss.

Obviously if they were sailing around the supposed ice wall on the flat earth, they would be traveling a much longer distance; as flat earthers estimate that it would be 70,000 – 78,000 miles.

Flat Earthers say that they don’t have pictures of the end of the ice wall and dome, because of the Antarctic Treaty; and that the military keeps people out.

Flat earthers proclaim that nobody can visit Antarctica, but many people do that every year; including who take the Antarctica Sightseeing Flight.

The people who travel to or live in Antarctica fall into two main groups, those who live and work on scientific research stations or bases, and tourists.

Here is a helicopter view of McMurdo Station, Antarctica. Facing the mountains across the Ross Sea, the helo rises, turning toward the helipad, the Crary Lab (three white buildings connected by ramp), the blue dining hall with dorms, fuel storage tanks (round white things), windmills above Scott Road; then a brief view of volcano Mount Terror, heading out across Ross Sea. Mount Discovery appears, then the Royal Society Range (I think). Then a long stretch of sea ice, ending with a giant flat iceberg.

Here are pictures of Villa Las Estrellas, showing that Antarctica is not just an impassable ice shelf.

There are around 66 scientific bases in Antarctica, of which about 37 are occupied year round. There are about 4,000 people through the summer months and about 1,000 overwinter each year.

Here is McMurdo Base.

Falt-earthers say that if people try to visit Antarctica, they will be met with resistance by the military.

Apparently someone forgot to tell these people who had adventures there.

Quark Expeditions has been the world leader in polar cruises and guided tours for over two decades and successfully operated many first-ever passenger trips to Antarctica, including the Circumnavigation of the Antarctic continent and the first Weddell Sea voyage.

Here are links to more videos proving that people visit and explore Antarctica:

The Amundsen–Scott South Pole Station is a United States scientific research station at the Geographic South Pole, the southernmost place on the Earth.

Antarctic related mapping resources prove that it is a continent:

Flat earthers post images like this, that show the thick ice shelf of Antarctica, and imply and that it is an ice ring that encircles the Earth.

Are there places like this on Antarctica? Yes.  Is all of Antarctica like this?  No.

Here’s a video from a flat earther about wikileaks emails that contained pictures of Antarctica.  I’m not sure why he seems to think that it proves the protected ice ring, because it shows the opposite, with mountains, ships, etc.

He seems to make a big deal out of ships that have sails, like that means something significant.

And he’s right.  In order to keep Antarctica pristine and not risk pollution from motorized ships, in some of the places they use sailing ships.

On Flat Earth Deception home page you saw that flat-earther are using an north-polar azimuthal equidistant map, which shows the globe earth on a 2D projection.  The Southern hemisphere is flared out to make it visible, which greatly exaggerates the size of the southern continents such as Australia.

The only way to represent the continent of Antarctica is to project is as a ring, because all of the longitudinal lines point down to it.

When asked for pictures of the edge of the flat earth, they proclaim that Antarctica is protected so that nobody can see the edge of the supposed dome.

So they dismiss any image from space, but they have no photos to prove that Antarctica encircles the flat earth, or that there is an edge to the supposed dome.

So until they produce pictures of the end of the supposed ice rings, we’ll have to trust these pictures from people are not involved in the flat earth discussion.

With that picture saying that ‘When someone tells you there is no ice wall in Antarctica’, it does not really prove that there is an ice wall and it also does not prove that the Earth is flat. They need to show the edge of the Earth, which in fact no one has ever found. No edge means no flat earth, just a very huge massive rotating globe. That is what the Earth really is.
