Flat Earth / Square Earth
As reported by The History Blog, the Library of Congress has received the donation of a rare "Square Earth" map. This map (available for 25 cents from Prof. Orlando Ferguson) includes scriptural references to support the "flat earth" cartographic thesis.
Actually, it is not exactly flat... sort concave... (is that the right word? feel free to correct me). But it makes sense. It explains why, when I look up in the sky, I see South America!
HT to Hunter
UPDATE: LOL @vWMaps calls it "The Bible Map of the Earth" and says it "Looks like it'd make a great roulette wheel."
