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.

Azimuthal flat earth map centered in the Denver

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.

equidistant map, azimuthal map projection.

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.

Hey, this is a great site. You need to replace your US/Denver AE Map with one from 36.1699 N, 115.1398 W, the true center of the known universe, Las Vegas….

Daniel, here’s a link to an Azimuthal Equidistant projection of the globe earth, based from Las Vegas. As you can see, there is no ice ring, because there are no continents on the opposite side of the globe. http://flatearthdeception.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/AzimuthalMap-vegas.jpg

Being in the navy ,,an crossing the alantic 10 times,,on aircraft carriers,,an twice flying across the alantic,,in a hurcules c 140,, us ,,,,,,,,,,,

military plane, I never ever did find any curve of the earth at 35,000 feet,,as I observed the gyroscope on the plane,,as we maintained our flight path

Crossing the Atlantic doesn’t prove anything. You were on a boat in a big ocean. 35,000 feet is not high enough to see the curve. The gyroscope keeps you level with the ground below you, so it automatically follows the curve of the earth.

Gary September 30, 2017 at 10:37 pm

How do you know that 35,00 feet is not high enough to see the curve? EXACTLY, how many feet in space to see “the curve?” Pretty simple question. How many feet to see the curve? No one has an answer, not even you!

Navy davy September 14, 2017 at 10:15 pm

Earth is flat as I witnessed on 10 cruises on a navy carrier,,crossing the alantic,,we always maintained a sea level,,draft in the water,,,no curve of earth ever was visable,,for thousands of miles

David September 15, 2017 at 1:13 am

Well, you can’t see for thousands of miles on a navy carrier. You can only see a few miles at a time, which proves nothing. Actually, since there’s nothing blocking your view (like on the ground), if the earth were flat, you would be able to see much further than 3 miles. But you can’t, because the earth is curved.

ha, you believe the ISS is real….fool

this site is a crock of lies

The irony here Jake is that flat earthers deny that the sun illuminates the moon, which we can clearly see played out during the 29.5 day cycle. The closer the moon appears to the sun in the sky at sunset, the less of the illuminated side we see. We the moon is overhead at sunset, we can see half of the illuminated moon. And when the moon is across the sky from the sun, we see all of the illuminated side, thus the full moon. It ain’t rocket science!

So even if I’m wrong about the ISS, which we can’t see with our eyes; flat earthers are the ones teaching a crock of lies regarding the moon; which we can clearly see with our eyes; which they say illuminates itself.

Most of our understanding of what we humans have deemed “the universe”, is still largely misunderstood, we take the empirical evidence of science and combine it with theoretical suppositions of physics and conflate it into a semi plausible explanation of how thing work based on how they might appear to the casual observer in order to arrive at a convenient answer, because that is in our nature, we humans have an incessant need to quantify everything right down to our very existence, to with, the word “inexplicable” is scientific heresy and opposing viewpoints are excoriated into obscurity, but I digress. It really does all boil down to one thing, and it’s this, “if” you believe that the Earth is what you say it is, then prove it ,don’t just regurgitate the theories and writings of others. Therein lies your task, quantify the dynamics of “Gravity” through experimental physics, not theoretically and you’ll have made your point, in other words, “don’t tell me, show me”, prove it…

Seriously Sergio? Where is the empirical evidence for how the moon illuminates itself? Where is the evidence for how the sun and moon revolve above the flat earth? What forces cause them to move from the Tropic of Capricorn to the Tropic of Cancer? Where is the empirical evidence for why objects are pulled downward on the flat earth?

There is plenty of provable, observable evidence on this website; to prove that the Earth is not flat. And that’s the point. Most people can’t proof the scientific theories themselves, but we certainly can see how the moon is illuminated by the sun. We can see how the sun and moon set at full size below the horizon line; instead of just moving away and disappearing as a small dot, above the horizon line like it would be if the earth were flat.

“don’t tell me, show me”, prove it…

A nice attempt to debunk the flat earth, but your failure is that your plan was to debunk, not to seek evidence of a flat plane….. however, a Flat Earther named D. Marble (on youtube) proved with a very simple but effective experiment, that Earth IS 100 % flat: HOW?

At around 1pm his time in TACOMA WASHINGTON USA, with afternoon sun shining clearly above him in a clear blue sky, he did a video call to a guy in Bradford, West Yorkshire ENGLAND and it was around 9pm there, sunset clearly visible. Then minutes later he video called a guy in Biloela, Central Queensland, AUSTRALIA and the time was around 6am with sunrise clearly visible. SO I ASK YOU:
How the “F” do you see the sun in Washington USA, ENGLAND, ….AND in AUSTRALIA … if the earth is a globe?? Debunk that…. you cant. End of debate.

I had people around me, who know a lot of the Jesuit’s deceptions, tell me that the earth is flat. So I watched videos and read explanations, and this website is what I found. You can disagree with my perspective, but don’t come on my website and proclaim that I am lying. I just want the truth, and I’ve clearly said that I’m open to the geocentric position of the earth.

As for D. Marble’s example, I love how you say “around 9pm” in England, and “around 6am” in Australia. Why not give precise times, to back up the supposed facts?

You can go to timeanddate.com, which is based on the globe earth, and see that 1:05 is solar noon in Tacoma (for 8/15, the day before he published the video).

Civil twilight in Bradford England, which would mean that the sunset would be visible, happened at 9:15pm; so that lines up. Not sure why there is a problem.

Sunrise in Biloela is at 6:24am, so that lines up. So there is no discrepancy about the overhead sun, sunset and sunrise; in those places; at the same time.

If you look at a supposed flat earth map, it’s difficult to see how that would happen, as the rays of the supposed close sun do not spread to the other side of the flat earth. Here’s a link to an image that shows where the sun is, and the different cities mentioned. http://flatearthdeception.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/marble-sun-fe.jpg

Given that tomorrow is the fall equinox, please explain to me how the sun rises due East, @ 90 degrees; and sets due West, @ 270 degrees; in Tacoma, in Bradford and in Biloela. Given that the sun is orbiting the equator, that’s simply not possible on the flat earth model. That’s a flat earth fail!

Zero proof? Really? Flat earthers don’t have a real map. They don’t have pictures of the edge of the ice wall or dome. They can’t explain why objects are pulled downward, except to cite mass and density. They can’t explain how the moon illuminates itself or creates the changing phases. They can’t explain how planets travel on the ecliptic circle. They can’t explain why the sun sets at full size, below the horizon; instead of transitioning into a small dot and then disappearing, above the horizon line, as it would if the earth were flat. I could keep going, but somehow, given your trite comment, I don’t think it will help.

Gary, on the Photos page there are pictures from flat earthers, who proclaimed that the horizon line is flat; that when you apply a straight-line, you can see the curve. There are pictures from the Concorde Jet, from the pilots, that show the curve. http://flatearthdeception.com/photos-prove-the-flat-earth-deception/
