THE COMMON WORLD MAP YOU KNOW IS GROSSLY INACCURATE !
Peterís World Map is only one of its kind that represents countries accurately according to their surface areas. Have we been duped into believing false facts about the Earth.
Traditional Mercator maps have tended to show countries incorrectly in proportion or relative size to one another, to the advantage of the European colonial powers who dominated and exploited the world, while the southern continents (Africa, South America, Australia) are shown far too small. Observe these 4 blatant fallacies:
1)- Traditionally, Europe, with its 9.7 million sq kms appears to be larger than South America which is 17.8 sq kms. But in fact, South America is nearly twice the size of Europe!
2)- Traditionally, North America, having 19 million sq kms, appears to be considerably larger than Africa which has 30 million sq kms. The fact is that Africa is really the largest continent in the world and its true dimensions have been fudged by colonial England to play it down.
3)- Traditionally, Scandinavia, having 1.1 million sq kms, appears to be as large as India which has 3.3 sq kms. In fact, India is three times the size of Scandinavia, and its true form is very elongated.
4)- Traditionally, Greenland, having 2.1 million sq kms appears large than China when in fact China with 9.5 million sq kms is more than four times larger!
It is based upon a German historian Arno Peterís decimal grid which divides the surface of the Earth into 100 longitudinal fields of equal width and 100 latitudinal fields of equal height. The zero meridian on this system is combined with a proposed new international date line, that when truly aligned shows that all major sacred sites lie upon these lines, but the way we see the world on the traditional cartographic world maps shows no harmony of placement of sacred sites.
