    • The way we draw maps is always going to be inaccurate, it's incredibly difficult to take a spherical area and map it onto a rectangular plane. The "straight line" on the map isn't a straight line on a sphere, the curved line above is far more likely to be a straight line on a sphere.

    • World maps are distorted in the upper and lower regions due to trying to make a sphere into a flat map. That’s why the curved line that follows the distortion of the map is quicker than the straight line on the map. For all of you asking

    • Earth isnt a flat surface so Euclidean geometry can't make sense of it. The curve is actually straighter than the "straight" line.

    • For those saying "I don't understand, a straight line is always the fastest", that is true when you're on a straight/flat surface. A curved line is fastest when you're on a curved object a flat line is fastest when you're on a flat object

    • I met a flat Earther the first time a couple weeks ago at the bar, I was super excited cuz I've never met one irl. I tried explaining the truth to him with facts, maps, pics etc. But he just kept calling it "FAKE NEWS!" and spouting off stupid conspiracy explanations and shit. It was hilarious lol.

    • The best way to understand is to picture a globe, on a globe the “straight” line will actually be curved in because the globe is round, that roundness doesn’t translate to flat maps so the straight line on 2d is not the same

    • Flat Earthers generally believe the disk looks the the Azimuth equidistant projection, centered at the North Pole (UN Flag). This would in theory account for that, since the line wraps around to be straight.

    • I think flat earthers should pay extra airfare or other fees to show the extra cost that in fact it's a sphere or they keep paying high prices till they trust real research. Plus how funny is it if they travel the "straight line" to the destination realizing it takes longer per flight.

    • You have to add in Earth’s rotation. How far the earth rotates in however long the flight is will greatly change the final location. The plane flies in a straight line but the rotation makes the flight path appear curved on a map

    • The earth is a sphere (roughly). It's curved and not flat, a straight line is actually curved on a sphere, just like longitudes are straight and parallel at one point and converge at some point. If you lay out the surface of the sphere flat and make a straight line, you'd get a parabola if you(1/?)
