Most of the (fake) images we’ve been given of our earth are based on a Mercator projection wrapped around a ball. The 2007 & 2012 versions are the exceptions, and the 2012 one is so bad it must have been an intentional mistake. Were there any other flat earth clues released in 2012?
All of my graphics are free to use as long as credit is given. This video contains the only animations I’ve seen which provide a visual demonstration of how both the globe, and the AE projection are derived from the Mercator map.
