ANTARCTIC CUP RACE: I thought I would post this here because frankly, I didn't find a more appropriate thread for it. A gentleman made the argument under a youtube video that:

"+Mark Wilson you seem to be the only one trolling! Each year the Antarctic Ocean Cup sail clockwise around Antarctica, with the "ice wall" on their right. If you sail clockwise around your alleged flat Earth, the "ice wall" would be on your left! Just more evidence which debunks the AE being a flat Earth representation."

In essence he thinks the so-called Antarctic Cup ocean "race" is his trump card disproving flat earth, and that it matters if it is sailed E/W vs. W/E.

I leave the below responses because of the useful links regarding the fallacy of believing any such "race" actually occurring-- at a reported distance of either 14,000 or 16,400 miles, depending on which one you believe-- and the math showing a rough distance that corroborates the mileage reported by explorers of years gone by who circumnavigated around the land masses of Earth following more or less along the ice rim.

I FIRST RESPONDED WITH:

Antarctic Cup.

1) Lisa Blair sailed 14,000 miles. "The Antarctica Cup Ocean Race is a non-stop race of around 14,000 nautical miles. Circumnavigating Antarctica by passing the three most notorious capes on the planet. Cape Leeuwin, Cape Horn and Cape Agulhuss. https://lisablairsailstheworld.com/antarctica-cup/

2) This fellow went a whopping 2,400 miles further in the same race. "Konyukhov came through it all unscathed, returning to King George Sound at 02: 56:50 UTC (10:56:50 WST) to record a time of 102 days 00 hours 56 minutes 50secs for this 16,400 mile circuit of Antarctica." http://www.acronautic.com/antartica-cup-ocean-race/

3) It's not really a "race" at all. A few individuals have professed to sailed that far. How much do you reckon that costs in total to do such a "race."

4) See "Flat earth The Antarctica Cup (supported by Freemasons)" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_tDPhbqnbc

5) The same Freemasons that have you believing in the silly spinning ball; Pythagoras, Copernicus, Kepler, Newton and Einstein, for example.

I THEN ADDED A 2ND RESPONSE:

We know the claimed "race" is circumferential and varies between 45 and 60 degrees south latitude. That's 1,035 miles north/south variance between 45 and 60 degrees (15 latitude lines times 69 miles per line).

The given size of the ball you believe on is 24,901 miles circumference. 24,901 divided by 360 degrees equals 69 miles per latitude line.

At 60 degrees south, that's at total of 150 latitude lines from the center (North Pole). Ninety from Pole to Equator, sixty from Equator to the latitude of the race.

Using a radius of 150 lines times 69 miles per line, equals 10,350 mile radius. Now times 2 for the diameter, equals 20,700 miles diameter at 60 degrees south latitude.

Now we have diameter size of the 60 degree south latitude line. Use the below calculator to convert the 20,700 mile diameter to the circumference length in miles.

https://www.omnicalculator.com/math/circumference

65,031 miles circumference.

On the flat earth the actual rough distance a boat would travel if following 60 degrees south latitude would be 65,031 miles. And you believe what you hear about an alleged Antarctic Cup Race of between 14,000 and 16,400 miles.

What's interesting to note is that Cook and Ross, "in attempting Antarctic circumnavigation took 3 to 4 years and clocked 50-60,000 miles around. The British ship Challenger also made an indirect but complete circumnavigation of Antarctica traversing 69,000 miles." ---200 Proofs Earth is Not a Spinning Ball (Eric Dubay, Proof #42)

Antarctic Cup Race

Post by markwilson on Sun Nov 19, 2017 10:27 am

A couple more points, since my above post dealt with Antarctic Cup race (and I don't see a better place to post this).

1) Rowbotham wrote, "That the surface of water is horizontal is a matter of absolute truth, and as the earth is founded upon the seas, and stretched out above the waters, it is of necessity a plane; and being a concrete mass of variable elements and compounds, with different specific gravities, it must be a floating structure, standing in and out of the waters, just as we see a ship or an iceberg." (emphasis mine)

And as we know, he liberally uses "Scripture" to support his contention that Earth "must be a floating structure...."

I believe a demonstrable fact in nature lending support to such an idea (and completely disregarding as in any way reliable, anything from the Book of Jewish Tall Tales), are the denser waters found under the ocean:



The obvious question becomes, how extensive are those denser waters the gentleman's submarine couldn't submerge into, and what lies underneath, whatever the depth of those waters?! It's a question I'm sure won't be answered to my satisfaction in my lifetime, and it is illogical to pretend to use the Bible as any kind of answer to that question, imo. After all, the Bible was written by superstitious sun-worshipers ("Sun of righteousness"), and translated under the influence of the Masonic king who commissioned it (that's why the book of Jacob (Yaakov) becomes "James" in an obsequious gesture by the translators to his vain royal highness.

"King James became a Freemason in 1601 in Scotland"

2) In the post above I rounded to 69 miles distance between latitude lines to determine the diameter, and by extension, the circumference length of the 60 degree south latitude line. Taking the given 24,901 mile circumference for the Masonic "globe," and dividing by 360, equals 69.16.

Using that figure also supports a rough estimate of the sun's height at 3,105 miles, as determined using the isosceles right triangle on Equinox from the 45 degree n/s latitude lines, and confirmed by way of solar panel calculators proving an angle of 45 degrees on Equinox is the direction to point the solar panel at midday to have it directly face the sun. http://susdesign.com/sunangle/

”All are agreed that when we have equal day and equal night twice a year over the earth, the sun is vertical to the earth at the Equator, but it is not generally known that when the sun is in this position— called its equinox— observers at 45 degrees north latitude and 45 degrees south latitude must record 45 degrees as the angle of elevation from the horizon to the sun’s centre at noon, and that the spot north or south of the Equator from where the sun is observed at this angle at noon is the spot that marks the EXACT DISTANCE TO THE EQUATOR AS THE SUN IS ABOVE THE EQUATOR.” (emphasis mine) —John Edward Quinlan, The Earth a Plane

Google Earth (and the GPS in my truck) confirms 1 degree of latitude is roughly 69 miles, which supports the affirmation that the Antarctic Cup race of some pretended 14,000 or 16,400 miles duration, depending on who you believe, is just another Masonic hoax played out on the world stage, and that the 65,000 to 69,000 miles figure is the reality of the thing when circumnavigating the land masses at 60 degrees south latitude.
