From Rick for your discussion:
Ab, quick note. I was working through a flat earth idea this morning and discovered that the longitude distance between Tucson and Charleston (at latitude 32 north) is 36 longitude degrees and so is the longitude distance between Perth and Sydney (at latitude 32 south). In the northern hemisphere, that 36 degree city separation is 2000 miles and in the south it’s almost 3000 miles or 50% longer. When I checked a north polar map projection, with equidistant latitude lines from north to south pole– a good approximation of a flat earth map, the distance between the longitude lines were similarly 50% wider from each other at the latitude. This is the simplest and most elegant proof I’ve ever seen of a flat earth. I developed it this morning and haven’t seen anything quite equivalent to it– in simplicity and elegance after perusing flat earth videos, sites and podcasts for about a month now. It doesn’t require flight logs or any travel– just a simple
longitude to miles conversion for the same longitude distance in the north and south at equivalent latitudes. I chose the cites above as pretty close approximations but I could make it more accurate. I’m passing this onto you this morning so that you might pass it along for our peer review among other fakeologists. I might be wrong but I’m giddy about being right at the moment. Thanks.
