Maps Prove The Flat Earth Deception

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

This page discusses maps which prove that the earth is a globe, not flat.

The map that flat-earthers use actually represents the globe earth!

It’s a north-polar azimuthal equidistant projection, also called an azimuthal map projection. These maps can be centered from anywhere, but the north pole is the most common reference point.

You can make them on this Azimuthal Map Generator website, you just need to define the center point with longitude and latitude.

This is base from the North Pole:

North Poles Equidistant map project is not a flat earth map

It is a projection of a globe earth onto a 2D map, that has straight meridian lines, with distances from the pole represented correctly.

It’s what you would see from the top of the globe earth, with the bottom hemisphere expanded out into the outer circles.

It’s not a proportionally correct map, as it exaggerates the size of countries in the southern hemisphere, as you can see with Australia, which is huge.

Australia is at the 45 degree south line, so on that map it’s twice the normal size.

If the bottom of the globe was water, then the edge of the map would have just been blue.

Since the continent of Antarctica is on the very bottom of the globe, the only way to represent it on a north-polar equidistant projection map is to spread it out around the outer circle, as all of the longitudinal (meridian) lines point down to it.

Here is one that is centered from the South Pole in Antarctica. You can see that the continents that are north of the equator are disproportionate. Note that Australia is correctly represented as it is close to Antarctica.

Antartica south pole azimuthal map proces the flat earth theory is false

Here is one that is centered around the middle of the U.S., from Denver.  Once again, the continents that are on the opposite side of the globe from the U.S. are disproportionately spread out in the outer circle.

Now look back at the above projection maps that are based from the South Pole and America.  Because there is no land mass directly opposite of the center point, there is no land ring on the outside of the circle.  It is just ocean.

Now let’s look at the north-pole equidistant map again. As I previously noted, the white land mass that encircles the map represents the continent of Antarctica, which is distorted by the map being flared out.

Every meridian line that originates from the North Pole runs down to the South Pole.

Globe earth meridian lines

So on the north-polar azimuthal equidistant projection below, the red circle represents the South Pole, as all of the meridian lines connect from the North Pole to the South Pole.

Equidistant map outside edge represents the south pole, invalidating the flat earth theory

All of the meridian lines point down to the South Pole, which on this map is the red dot.

Flat earth antarctic map

If you look at the land mass that encircles the azimuthal equidistant map projection, it is not uniform.  The land mass is thicker on the right side.  And there are some areas that are recessed.

That circular land mass is the continent of Antarctica spread out wide, and the .

Now look at this image that keeps the land mass around the outside edge, and has the continent of Antarctic in the middle, as that is what is on the bottom of the globe.  The land mass is exaggerated, as the outside ring representation is exaggerated.  The continent is inverted to match the inverted outer circle, as the equidistant view is from the top down.

The flat earth map ice ring is actually antarctica

Look at the left side of the continent, which is small compared to the right side.  That matches the thin land mass of the left, compared to the right.

Now look at the peninsula on the left lower side at 240 degrees.  It matches the peninsula on Antarctica.

The top of the circle is very thin and has a recess.

That matches the curvature of the top of Antarctica.

On the bottom right at 110 degrees, there is a small indentation.

That matches the bay on the southeast part of Antarctica.

Let’s take it one step further.  The bottom left red line shows that the meridian lines runs from the bay of Antarctica through South America. The bottom left red lines shows that the meridian line runs from the small bay runs through Asia.  The top red line shows that the meridian line runs from the other large bay in between North America and Russia.

Flat Earth map is equidistant map

The azimuthal equidistant map projection is only a tool, to help determine distances and flight maps on a globe earth.

Every time a flat-earther posts an explanation about direct airplane flights that they say is wrong on a globe earth; they are using this equidistant map, which is a globe map.

 

azimuthal equidistant projection map is not a flat earth map

That is a map projection, an azimuthal equidistant projection, which is a systematic transformation of the latitudes and longitudes of locations on the surface of a sphere or an ellipsoid into locations on a plane (3D to 2D). The longitude last expand out, causing countries outer countries like Australia to be exaggerated in size. It’s a useful tool to determine the best flight path. It actually reinforces the globe earth.

Commonly, a map projection is a systematic transformation of the latitudes and longitudes of locations on the surface of a sphere or an ellipsoid (3D) into locations on a plane (2D). as the latitudinal lines radius out from the center point, it causes the locations that are furthest away from the center point to appear abnormally large. That is the reason that Australia looks so big on this map, as it is far away from the center point.

That image actually supports a globe earth., more than a flat earth.

Can be conical or cylinder shaped.

 

They cite that the U.N. mocks us by using a flat earth map.

Once again, it is simply a equidistant map, which represents the globe earth in a 2D format.  How else would they, or anyone, represent the globe to show all of the continents in a 2D format?

Goofy flat earth explanations about Astronomy:

Here is their flawed explanation of the path of the International Space Station. There is no integrity with flat earth explanations like this. The map on the top is obviously not a good representation of a globe, as it’s a flat map with the countries side by side. The bottom image is a good representation of a globe, as it is a north-polar azimuthal equidistant projection map of the globe earth.

International Space Station path around a globe misrepresented by flat earthers

So they misrepresented the globe map, and then used a real globe map as supposed proof of the flat earth. Ya’ll need to wake up! The north-polar azimuthal equidistant projection map represents the globe earth. It is not a flat-earth map. By using that map you are proving the globe earth. Such irony!!!

International Space Station path around a globe

First of all, the image they use of the globe positions the two continents side by side, but they are on opposite sides of the globe, so it is a misrepresentation, which distorts the flight path going across the ocean.  Of course, flight paths stay over land as much as possible for obvious reasons.

Then they use an equidistant map as their supposed flat earth map, to show the direct flight route.  The anazimuthal equidistant map projection which shows distances and directions accurately from the center point. In this case, it shows the optimal flight path from England to Texas, which is direct and stays over land as much as possible.

Flat earth flight map of plane from England to Texas

Here is the same flight path on a globe, which is the same as on the supposed flat earth map. You can use this echalk utility to see the direct flight path on the globe, which will match the equidistant map which the flat-earthers mistakenly use.

Globe earth England to Texas flight path, same as supposed flat earth map

Here’s another example. Again the image on the left is a bad representation of a globe, and the image on the right is a globe equidistant projection map.

airline flight supposedly proves the flat earth

This all gets proved out with a picture of the flight on the globe earth

Los Angeles to Taiwan flat earth example exposed

.

Flat earth believers make memes about flight paths using an equidistant map for their explanation.  The irony is that is exactly what an equidistant map is for, as it represents the globe in 2D, to map out direct flights.

Here is a list of the types of map projections, of the globe earth.

Earth is flat in always and you know it and you’re never going to use maps to manipulate this geodetic land surveying would be the science of measuring Earth itself why don’t you get with the program and start measuring Earth and if you can’t do that and why don’t you look to the ones who do until then you’re just going to be another idiot that can’t grasp what’s going on here and you’re obviously lost so lost. You can’t point to anything but the ground when dealing with the shape of the ground so why are you pointing to everything else get with the program dude grow up

Obviously I don’t know that the earth is flat, thus this website. People have been measuring the earth through geodesic measurements for many years, and they find arc angles, which proves that the earth is curved. http://flatearthdeception.com/geodesy-proof-of-the-flat-earth-deception/

The ironic part is that flat earthers are using a globe earth map as their model. It’s a north-polar azimuthal equidistant projection, also called an azimuthal map projection. These maps can be centered from anywhere, but the north pole is the most common reference point.

Based on the wording of your comment, you must still be in Junior High School, so you’re the one who needs to grow up.

Why do you say that the “globe” is used to explain “FE”?

I said that they are using a globe map to supposedly prove that the Earth is flat. It’s a north polar azimuthal projection of the globe Earth. Any 2D projection of a 3D globe earth is going to cause distortion. In the case of the azimuthal projection, it distorts the land masses that are far away from the center point; which is why Australia looks twice as wide as it really is; and why the continent of Antarctica is rendered as a white circle around the map.

This is a circular argument, no pun intended, flat maps came first and were projected onto a globe shape. Study history and the scientific method to form a valid argument.

Flat maps came first? Saying that 2D maps came before globes, does not prove anything.

Every map is a 2D representation of the 3D earth. Every map distorts the land masses in some way, such as the north-polar azimuthal projection, which distorts the land masses which are furthest from the center point; which is why Australia appears to be so wide.

This page has proved being a reasonable doubt that the supposed flat earth map is a north polar azimuthal projection of the globe earth.

This page proves that the ice ring is the massively distorted projection of the continent of Antarctica.

You can create a south-polar azimuthal equidistant projection, and the earth looks totally different, and there is no ice ring. You can create a azimuthal equidistant projection centered on Denver, Colorado; and there’s no ice ring, as there’s no land mass opposite of Denver on the globe earth.

You have all of the proof that you need. No history or scientific method is needed, thanks.

Nice job trying to explain why the earth is a globe. It’s an emotional thing though, so I don’t think logic is the way to go. Jesus needs to come down upon this globe and set them straight 🙂

Your comment says a lot Kevin, for most flat earthers are basing their views on their emotions, not logic. There are so many deceptions in this world, that they’ve been led to believe that this is the biggest one. I understand, almost everything is fake. We live in The Matrix.

As for me, I’m a logical person, so that’s why my explanations are simple, logical proofs that we can see for ourselves.

When Messiah returns, people are going to be shocked by the real deceptions; such as the fulfillment of prophecy, who is the antichrist and who is the false prophet. http://revelationtimelinedecoded.com/bible-prophecy-made-easy/

Hi,
I have a question, and a comment.
First, it makes me sad that virtually every conversation I see regarding FE vs globular earth include name calling/insults. There is no reason to treat others with disrespecte simply because we hold different beliefs.
My question is, David, can you share the flight pattern info for some southern hemisphere flights, so I can better understand the effect of the distortion factor farther from center. Thanks.

Hi Rodeovet, Yeah, some people don’t seem capable of having rational discussions about the shape of the earth.

So how does the description of the Messiah’s return “in the clouds with ALL flesh seeing Him” take place on a sphere? So people on the opposite side of the sphere don’t get to see him? This scripture on makes sense on a plane Earth with a dome. Also what are the windows of heaven and floodgates of heaven mentioned in the Bible? Allegory? Or proof of a dome covered Earth?

Reply

David December 11, 2017 at 3:16 pm

How does it take place on the flat earth? Can everyone see the sun when it’s over Jerusalem? No, it’s dark on the other side of the flat earth. So when Messiah returns, would everyone on the flat earth be able to see Him? No.

The windows and floodgates of heaven are describing the moisture which is collected there, as part of the earthly cycle of evaporation and precipitation. Do you really think that a dome has actual windows and floodgates that let water in?
