MOST — BUT NOT ALL — of the Flat Earthers DO believe the earth is round — but round and flat like a pizza. Figure 1 is “a very common map created by our Society [i.e., the Flat Earth Society] for use in online materials.” [https://theflatearthsociety.org/home/index.php/featured/maps, accessed summer of 2020]

But even the Flat Earthers cannot agree on what the “flat earth” is supposed to look like. Fig. 2 is the “flat earth” suggested by Michael Wilmore, the Flat Earth Society’s vice-president! [https://theflatearthsociety.org/home/index.php/featured/maps, accessed summer of 2020]

No one has been ever able to produce a real photograph of the above “flat earths”!

Oh my God! The Antarctic ice wall has morphed (melted?) into a mass of land and ice! Click here for a collection of real photos of Antarctica from outer space. I have never seen a real photograph of the “Antarctic ice shelf” from outer space. Click here for a geological description of Antarctica.

Below is the same “flat earth” trip around the southern hemisphere on a rectangular (plate carrée, pronounced “plot kuh-RAY”) projection of the earth (fig. D.)

Fig. 2. Michael Wilmore’s “flat earth” map. Antarctica has morphed (melted?) into a shape we’re more familiar with and Australia’s shape has been grossly distorted. I wonder what our Aussie friends would think of this “flat earth”! [https://theflatearthsociety.org/home/index.php/featured/maps]If Flat Earthers ever wanted to fly around the “southern hemisphere”, they may want to fly something like fig. C.
