Are you asking if this chapter of the Flat Earth Society has an opinion of the alleged plagiarism of the Azimuthmal Equidistant Projection by Gleason or Christopher?To the best of my knowledge, no one cares.
but it is just one more curiosity and one more nail in the FES coffin.
You're doing God's work, junker.
In reply to SexWarrior who seems to use reverse psychology by pretending that all those who use the globe model would embrace some irrational "religious zeal"/belief, in fact the Flat Earth model is the religious one: https://www.theflatearthsociety.org/home/index.php/featured/religious-references
Where live, do the offer adult reading classes?
Could Gleason's use of " Modern College" and "J.S. Christopher" just have been a ruse ?Blackheath Society also responded they had no information.They suggested I contact Morden College, which I had already done.

If I find a crazy round earther saying nonsense, can I also tell you that your beliefs are equal to his? Or are we going to be mature about this? And no, there's no reverse psychology at play here. It also has nothing to do with the round earth belief (although of course people do often approach it with religious zeal too). Gecko, specifically, is completely detached from reality, to the point where he often forgets what he said just hours prior. Given how well documented this is here, I find it probable that any and all of his references to "reality" are in fact references to his madness-induced visions.
I would be interested in a list of any of my posts which are "completely detached from reality."[...]Also a list of "madness induced visions" ?
You're very excited about this clerical error in print, aren't you? Do you mind if I ask why? Do you find it somehow surprising that an American print company (or the closest equivalent thereof for the time - mimeograph, perhaps? electrotype) would misspell Morden as Modern?
The error in mis-spelling of "Morden" as "Modern" is probably one of the least exciting things I can think of.
I'm just curious about "What is the connection between Alexander Gleason, an American Civil Engineer, Joseph Christopher, a retired English merchant, Morden College, a charity home for poor retired merchants such as Joseph Christopher
and a map which is a copy of the Unipolar Azimuthal Equidistant Projection of the globe."
