Jesus put it on my heart to post the following:

The math to get the center of the map of the world (comment #1844, above):

Glory to God.

The length of a great cubit comes from the size of a Roman foot, that comes from the book:
A DISCOVRSE OF THE ROMANE FOOT, AND DENARIVS: From whence, as from two principles, THE MEASVRES, AND WEIGHTS, used by the Ancients, may be deduced. By JOHN GREAVES, Professor of Astronomy in the Vniversity of Oxford. LONDON, Printed by M.F. for William Lee, and are to be sold at his shop at the sign of the Turkshead in Fleet-street. 1647. (pages 22, 41)
1 Roman foot = 11.604 inches (1,934 ÷ 2,000 = 0.967, 0.967 × 12 = 11.604)

1 hand breadth = 2.901 inches (11.604 inches ÷ 4 = 2.901)
1 finger breadth = 0.72525 inch (2.901 inches ÷ 4 = 0.72525)
1 hand span (distance from the end of the thumb to the end of the little finger of a stretched out hand) = 8.703 inches (2.901 inches × 3 = 8.703)

1 cubit = 17.406 inches (2.901 inches × 6 = 17.406) = 1.4505 foot (17.406 inches ÷ 12 = 1.4505) = 1 foot, 5.406 inches (0.4505 foot × 12 = 5.406) = 1 cubit "after the cubit of a man" (Deuteronomy 3:11), "after the first measure" (2 Chronicles 3:3), and "according to the measure of a man" (Revelation 21:17)

1 great cubit (used for all of Ezekiel [chapters] 40 - 48) = 20.307 inches (2.901 inches × 7 = 20.307) = 1.69225 foot (20.307 inches ÷ 12 = 1.69225) = 1 foot, 8.307 inches (0.69225 foot × 12 = 8.307) = 1 "great" (Ezekiel 41:8) cubit, and a "cubit and an hand breadth" (Ezekiel 40:5, 43:13)

1 full reed (used for all of Ezekiel [chapters] 40 - 48) = 121.842 inches (20.307 inches × 6 = 121.842) = 10.1535 feet (121.842 inches ÷ 12 = 10.1535) = 10 feet, 1.842 inch (0.1535 foot × 12 = 1.842) = 1 "full reed of six great cubits" (Ezekiel 41:8)

1 foot = 0.3048 meter
1 statute mile = 5,280 feet = 0.86897624190064794816414686825051 nautical mile (1 statute mile = 1.609344 kilometer, 1 nautical mile = 1,852 meters = 1.852 kilometer, 1 nautical mile = 1.852 kilometer ÷ 1.609344 = 1.1507794480235425117314881094409 statute mile, 1 statute mile = 1 nautical mile ÷ 1.1507794480235425117314881094409 = 0.86897624190064794816414686825051)

The math to get the center of the map of the world (comment #1844, above):

Glory to God.

The length of a great cubit comes from the size of a Roman foot, that comes from the book:
A DISCOVRSE OF THE ROMANE FOOT, AND DENARIVS: From whence, as from two principles, THE MEASVRES, AND WEIGHTS, used by the Ancients, may be deduced. By JOHN GREAVES, Professor of Astronomy in the Vniversity of Oxford. LONDON, Printed by M.F. for William Lee, and are to be sold at his shop at the sign of the Turkshead in Fleet-street. 1647. (pages 22, 41)
1 Roman foot = 11.604 inches (1,934 ÷ 2,000 = 0.967, 0.967 × 12 = 11.604)

1 hand breadth = 2.901 inches (11.604 inches ÷ 4 = 2.901)
1 finger breadth = 0.72525 inch (2.901 inches ÷ 4 = 0.72525)
1 hand span (distance from the end of the thumb to the end of the little finger of a stretched out hand) = 8.703 inches (2.901 inches × 3 = 8.703)

Fancy drawings prove nothing. Fancy drawings accompanied by assertions that a grade school student could refute prove the delusion of the one making the assertions.

The sun's path in relation to the earth's surface is one of the best-attested physical phenomena. Your map is inconsistent with it. If you're going to make assertions, at least be sure they don't directly contradict well-established and easily-observable facts.

Ezekiel gives horizontal measures, and they are width/breadth, so you should halve them if you want their centerpoints -- and the measurements of the temple he saw in his vision are not representative of any of the temples that stood on the mount ((the one Ezekiel relates is larger)), and the center of the earth is a vertical measurement, not horizontal; mt. Zion is not the center of the earth.

so you have calculated meaningless things & your math is wrong.

why did you even put this?

do these paragraphs have any useful function at all apart from filling the screen with repeated numbers?

1 inch = 1 inch = (1/1 + 1 - 1)*1 + 0 = 25.3 erg + (1 foot)/12 - 25.3erg = 1.000000000000000000000000000000 inch

area of Brazil ~ 3.286 million square miles

area of USA ~ 3.797 million square miles


so in the map below the USA is colored blue and Brazil is colored green.
USA is supposed to be a bit bigger than Brazil.


it's not; Brazil is ~ 3 times bigger than USA on your map.

your map is wrong.
way wrong.
sorry.

Jesus put it on my heart to post the following:

The math to get the center of the map of the world (comment #1844, above):

Glory to God.

The length of a great cubit comes from the size of a Roman foot, that comes from the book:
A DISCOVRSE OF THE ROMANE FOOT, AND DENARIVS: From whence, as from two principles, THE MEASVRES, AND WEIGHTS, used by the Ancients, may be deduced. By JOHN GREAVES, Professor of Astronomy in the Vniversity of Oxford. LONDON, Printed by M.F. for William Lee, and are to be sold at his shop at the sign of the Turkshead in Fleet-street. 1647. (pages 22, 41)
1 Roman foot = 11.604 inches (1,934 ÷ 2,000 = 0.967, 0.967 × 12 = 11.604)

1 hand breadth = 2.901 inches (11.604 inches ÷ 4 = 2.901)
1 finger breadth = 0.72525 inch (2.901 inches ÷ 4 = 0.72525)
1 hand span (distance from the end of the thumb to the end of the little finger of a stretched out hand) = 8.703 inches (2.901 inches × 3 = 8.703)

1 cubit = 17.406 inches (2.901 inches × 6 = 17.406) = 1.4505 foot (17.406 inches ÷ 12 = 1.4505) = 1 foot, 5.406 inches (0.4505 foot × 12 = 5.406) = 1 cubit "after the cubit of a man" (Deuteronomy 3:11), "after the first measure" (2 Chronicles 3:3), and "according to the measure of a man" (Revelation 21:17)

1 great cubit (used for all of Ezekiel [chapters] 40 - 48) = 20.307 inches (2.901 inches × 7 = 20.307) = 1.69225 foot (20.307 inches ÷ 12 = 1.69225) = 1 foot, 8.307 inches (0.69225 foot × 12 = 8.307) = 1 "great" (Ezekiel 41:8) cubit, and a "cubit and an hand breadth" (Ezekiel 40:5, 43:13)

1 full reed (used for all of Ezekiel [chapters] 40 - 48) = 121.842 inches (20.307 inches × 6 = 121.842) = 10.1535 feet (121.842 inches ÷ 12 = 10.1535) = 10 feet, 1.842 inch (0.1535 foot × 12 = 1.842) = 1 "full reed of six great cubits" (Ezekiel 41:8)

1 foot = 0.3048 meter

Dino, it would mean an open space where there are few trees or bushes, except God called the field the world. If you don't believe Jesus, that is between you and him.

Jesus said the field is the world. That is not difficult to understand. It is the truth, and I believe it.
So, you are saying that all fields are flat?

Keep in mind that by hiding the fact that the earth is a closed system, solely created to house us humans along with its other lifeforms created by the God of the bible, they are hiding God.

They keep pushing the alien agenda, and the space agenda for a reason.... TO HIDE GOD.

It is a lot simpler to hide God by making us seem like a spec of dust in the universe as opposed to acknowledging the fact that we are it and that there is just earth, and everything revolves around it.

We are the creation, not an accident.
There is all kinds of interesting observational evidence to indicate that the earth is indeed the center of the universe. Seriously there's there's a strong case to be made.

My brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, the sun rises in the east, near Japan (Ecclesiastes 1:5, Joshua 10:12,13), along with the moon and the stars, being around 73 miles up when it begins to rise, and speeds up (Psalms 19:5, Judges 5:31), all the way until it gets exactly due south of Latitude 31.776839547786177105831533477322° N Longitude 035.23474576723702749802271754038037° E, the center of the world, the top of mount Zion, the center of “the most holy place” (Ezekiel 41:4) of the temple. From there, being around 100 miles up, it begins to go down, slowing down (in the west), all the way until it gets to the north where it sets. It then passes over the north and starts to rise again near Japan, every day.

The reason you see the sun and the moon, which are the same size (both "great lights" Genesis 1:16), along with the majority of the stars that also rise (a few of them don't near the Arctic Circle) the way you do is because of the way the firmament magnifies, and presents them at a high elevation angle (Job 37:18), along with the direction you see them from you, depending what longitude line (and where on that longitude line) you are on. The firmament, where God placed the sun, moon, and stars (Genesis 1:17) at the creation of the world, around 6,000 years ago, acts as a giant kaleidoscope, a mirror, above us.

The stars are the size of figs (Revelation 6:13, Isaiah 34:4, Revelation 1:16,20, 2:1, 12:1), that are lights inside of what would be the rib cage of the heavenly bodies (Job 38:7, Genesis 37:9 (Genesis 15:5), Judges 5:20, Revelation 1:20, 9:1, Daniel 8:10)

There is victory in Jesus Christ. If you have not given your life to Jesus Christ yet, you must be born again (John 3:3,5, Romans 10:9), then stay in that salvation, that is your very life, Jesus, forever. It is not you who will be doing it, but God that is inside of you, doing his own work. Glory to God Almighty, forever and ever.

You should try stand-up comedy; your material is already getting laughs.

You need to get out of your mom's basement and go outside. Stop reading foolish flat-earth hogwash, and start reading elementary English, where you learn about figures of speech.

There is victory in Jesus Christ. If you have not given your life to Jesus Christ yet, you must be born again (John 3:3,5, Romans 10:9), then stay in that salvation, that is your very life, Jesus, forever. It is not you who will be doing it, but God that is inside of you, doing his own work. Glory to God Almighty, forever and ever.
At least there is some sense coming from you.

the only thing that is required to be a Christian is belief and trust in Jesus as Lord and Savior.

not belief in a flat earth.

in his time that was how everyone saw creation.
that's often repeated but it simply isn't true.

Jews didn't care about the shape of the world. the only astronomy they participated in was observing the moon in order to mark the days of their calendar. but Jews were Hellenized, and the Greeks had known as early as the 5th century BC that the earth is a globe.

while it's true that among some superstitious pagans there was still a rudimentary, ignorant view of the place in which they lived, when it comes to those with actual experimental and observational knowledge, for hundreds of years before the incarnation of Christ mankind knew with certainty that the earth is a globe.

He came at just the right time.
