No More Excuses - Flat Earth Fails

What is the distance from the North Pole to the Equator?

~ 6214.9 miles.

What is the circumference around the Equator?
For Flat Earth assume we mean the ground track path of the Sun at the Equinox.

~ 24,902 miles.

Whoops, Flat Earth just failed the most basic of geometric tests.

On a North Pole centered Flat Earth the distance of 6214.9 miles would be a radius and would give a circle of circumference of ~ 39049 miles for the Equator (or path of the sun at the Equinox).  This is BASIC geometry - 2π × 6214.9

That is NO WHERE NEAR the actual value.  You can compare hundreds of sources of information about both distances - thousands of flights, shipping routes, people driving.  We know for a FACT it's nowhere even close to 39049 miles.
