The World Map is 100% Wrong. (Has EVERYTHING been manipulated?)

I have to admit...I've never heard anything about this before.

The earth is round and therefore the challenge of any world map is to represent a round earth on a flat surface. But have our world maps been wrong or misleading for 500 years?

It seems as though they have. Although the featured clip in this article is from ‘The West Wing’, the inaccuracies of the world maps we commonly use is anything but fictional. The clip below reveals an accurate look at the size of Africa and how a world map might better reflect its size.

When first coming across this myself I was surprised to see how off it was, but after thinking of how populated Africa is, the land mass itself, and how many countries are in Africa, it became easy to see how big it has to be.

Africa is a huge, beautiful

Africa is a huge, beautiful place. It's too bad the natives haven't been able to do very much with it. They have an enormous treasure trove of natural resources, gods only know what is holding them back.

Interventionist empires

have held them back.
