More about your flat earth map.

Look at that map and imagine standing at the southern tip of Africa, looking south. You will see the southern constellations and the southern pole star Sigma Octantis quite low in the southern sky. If your flat earth map is right, you are looking at an angle of about 70 degrees, or at two o'clock on a clock face .

Now phone a friend at the southern tip of South America. They can see those same stars, and recognisable constellations in the southern sky at the same moment.

Yet, according to your map, they are looking at an angle of about 160 degrees, or about 5.15 on the clock face.

How could we possibly see the same stars at the same moment at about 90 degrees apart? That's as if I could see you out of the west facing front windows of my house and out of the north facing side windows, at the same time. Obviously impossible.
