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.

Falklands to Australia.

Inquisitive, you still have not proved that the distance from the Falklands to Australia is correct on a Round Earth.
What is the distance on a flat earth, please provide a map or diagram?

Are you seriously suggesting that distances proved by flights across the world are wrong? One example please.

Missing the point.  Inquisitive is the one questioning distances at all, not me.
Then why do you keep responding if you don't have any answers?

Are you claiming that the distance between the two would be different on a flat earth than it is on a spherical one?
If spherical geometry is very different from planar geometry, then why would you expect the distances to be the same?
As the distances would be different and we know exact distances between places that are on a spherical earth it is not possible to draw a flat earth map using verified data.

Falklands to Australia is probably the best example, it is not via the North Pole.

Do you actually know what you're claiming, or are you just trying to run the conversation in circles?
Draw 5 random points on a piece of paper and then on a ball. See if you can get the distances between each one and the others to be the same. Do not put them in a straight line or circle.

If you don't know or don't care, then what right do you have to question the official RE distance?

I didn't.  Inquisitive did.

How do you explain the measured distances between places fitting in with a flat earth?  eg. Falklands to Australia.
Not the way that I read it.  As near as I can tell, Inquisitive is questioning the FET distance from the Falklands to Australia, not the official RET distance.
Correct, what is the FET distance, approximately?

What inquiry should an individual undertake? There is no evidence that round earth distances are wrong.

You say that the distances are indisputable proof, yet you have never gone there, nor have you measured them.  You have been taught that the distances are facts, and so your closed mind doesn't question that.
A metre has been defined, i have a 1m rule.  I am told it is 1km to the supermarket.  I could measure it with my rule if I wanted to.  My car measures 1k.

Google Earth has a distance tool, has any evidence been produced that it is wrong?

Why this obsession of having to do something to prove it, does Peru exist, have you been there?

Measurements could either be accurate or inaccurate.  Do you have any actual numbers to use?  I haven't measured the distance from the Falklands to Australia and I doubt you have.
Distances are available from places such as Google Earth which are accepted as correct as they match reality.  It is possible to travel between those two places without going into the northern hemisphere.

How do you know any distance?  Does Australia really exist?

markjo is an internet wise guy.

markjo, if the globe is so accurate, why are they not standard features on ships and planes?  Do the captains and navigators not want the most accurate navigational aids possible?
Why do they not use a flat earth map which would be 100% accurate on a sheet of paper.

Your Satnav and tablet show exactly what they were programmed to show, nothing more.  Also, are you serious about "views from space"?  You must be new here.
So how do they know my location? They also work on aircraft over the oceans.

My satellite TV dish points into the sky, there is a big hill in the way of any ground based transmitter.  And dishes on the south coast point south.

OK, but I see how satellite TV works and my GPS satnav and tablet app show satellites orbiting the sky.  This would indicate a spherical earth to me.  Plus the views from space.

If the picture above is correct what is the shortest distance between Perth, Australia and Cape Town in miles?  Please show the route.
Define "the route".
Which places are passed over.

The distances between Australia and south africa and south america are wrong.
Nope.
How many miles between Perth, Australia and Cape Town?  So you would pass over the south of India.
Sorry, could I have that in English?

East to west is a circle on a flat earth.
Please provide a map to explain.
You don't have to look far, the map is easy to find in our wiki.  Here is one representation:
