Clearly direct distances are different between 2 places on a flat earth compared with a spherical one.How about Paris to Honk Kong on a flat earth map compared with the accepted, verified spherical distance. Based on the fact that nobody disputes spherical distances.

Once again - no one travels as if the earth is flat.

If you can't demonstrate it, then you shouldn't believe it.

One example please.

Th*rk is the worst person on this website.

Again, direct measured distances.

Distances will be different on a round earth and a flat earth. Round earth distances match reality.

P.S. All of us illiterate folks understood this the first time.

Inquisitive: Because of basic geometry, you're wrong. Please show otherwise.

Consider a square with 10cm sides. What is the distance to a point in the middle of the square?How consider those points to be on a football. What is the distance to a point equidistant to the 4 points? A bit longer.

It does not help that he is using vague concepts to try to prove a non existent point. inquisitive tends to like to make hypothetical statements and then try to use them to prove a point that he never declares.
