Wow why do humans always want to make things so complicated and show useless crap to say look at how intelligent I am?? It's old and annoying. Wisdom is worth way more. They showing this to try and prove the earth is still a globe when it's not. The earth is flat,we aren't spinning on a ball lol. I guess people just can't see how ridiculous that is. The sun,moon,& stars are down here with us and they move. Most can't fathom they have been lied to or believed something so foolish.

All those world maps are wrong, they don't have the ice wall along the borders to stop the oceans from draining off the edges of our flat Earth.

Maps are flat, earth is flat. Emergency plane landings don’t make sense on a globe.

"Emergency plane landings don’t make sense on a globe."
Give me an example with a source about the event. The most examples that I have seen, flat earther were so stupid that they did not look on a globe, but on a Mercator projection.

Great video on Maps aka charts... Chart is what a seafarer will call a Map..


But Mercator projection or Mercator chart is not obsolete today. Infact Mercator Chart is the most widely used CHART by a seafarer for day to day Navigation, Even today electronic charts are mostly Mercator electronic navigation chart(ENC). GPS or DGPS is there to give us a position on chart. But for navigation Charts are still very much essential.
