Okay.................let's talk about The Equator...............
 
 
 
 
 
 
Okay...................my question to the world is:  How did they determine what the Equator was, and how did they know where it was................    Whatever
 
 
 
In 1492 Christopher Columbus tried to convince Ferdinand and Isabella that the Earth was not flat............................     Whatever
 
 
And then he sailed away and discovered The New World and Hispañola and Corona beer.........
 
Then how did the ancient geographers and mapmakers know where ( and what ) the Equator was....136 years later...............?
 
 
 
 
 
 
Map of Africa     1626     [ Equator clearly marked...]   
 
 
 
Did they send a satelite up into the sky to measure the Earth's circumference??
