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

Flat Earth researcher Questions of the Day!
Question #1) Okay, so my friend is stating that on the FE, if the north is in the center of the face of the earth and the south surrounds to outer rim of the circle of the earth, then which way is East or West? This is beginning to confuse me. Can you help me with this? I am seriously searching for an understanding of this. In short, what I need to know is where the direct opposite of north is on a Flat Earth? Where is the direct opposite in a Flat Earth?” Like, if there’s north, then it’s opposite position should be south — but on an FE map, south surrounds the circle. So, she’s challenging me to answer where south would actually be in relation to north.
Answer #1) East and west are directional, and not a final destination. North and South function as both a direction and a final destination. Moving opposite from North, is South. To go North from South, one simply goes North. Furthermore, North West, North East, South East, and South West exist on a Flat Earth using a compass, and for the compass to work effectively it must be held flat and horizontal to the earth.
It’s comical that Nathan says that south has a final destination. Where is that Nathan? At the 360 different points along the circle edge of the flat earth? Seriously?
It get’s worse though, as east and west on the flat earth curved north; so there is no such thing as due east and due west.
Question #2) Here is how my friend explains her confusion with a FE point of view: https://youtu.be/V__7rB7ZJbw
Answer #2) To travel true east and west, one must follow its circuit. Because plane routes are straight, unless a short flight, it likely never travels true west and east. Most long flights travel SW, SE, NE, and NW. Where does the bottomless pit of hell fit on a globe? It easily fits on a flat earth. Job 28:24 uses the word “ends of the earth”… Where are the “ends” on the globe?
Below is an image of the Azimuthal Equidistant map created by Alexander Gleason and patented in 1892. Alexander Gleason is also the author of Is the Bible from Heaven? Is the Earth a Globe?
Nathan says that flights never travel true west or east, but he has no proof of that. He’s just basing that on the flat earth map.
Where would a bottomless pit be on the flat earth model? The passage is simply pointing to a deep pit, which seems bottomless.
As for the Azimuthal Equidistant map created by Alexander Gleason, Gleason’s patent shows that he knew that it’s a 2D projection of the 3D globe.
It’s filed under US Patent No. 497,917; which reads “The extorsion of the map from that of a globe consists, mainly in the straightening out of the meridian lines allowing each to retain their original value from Greenwich, the equator to the two poles.”
But Nathan doesn’t bother to read the patent, though he cites it. Such intellectual dishonesty!
