Never heard that before, but it might also be because centering the earth on any other position will leave you staring at a whole lot of the Pacific and end up cutting some poor continent in half.

also you know that map is upside down, if you can read Arabic you will find that all the words are upside down since the early Muslim geographers viewed the world opposite to how we see it today, and the weird thing is is that they weren't exactly wrong

The British actually made the first maps that had accurate longitude measurements with them and the prime meridian runs through Greenwich, England where the royal observatory is. They had a contest to see who could come up with a device to accurately measure longitudes and in order to have a benchmark, the royal observatory was to be the prime meridian. That's what my professor told me so take it for what it's worth.

Actualy, it's because during the late middle ages/renesance, britain, france, spain and portugal was litteraly the center of the world, both when it comes to economy and military. Not to mention they were the primary causes an accurate world map could be drawn. Most modern maps drawn in europe place britain in the center both as an honorary nod to them, and because it's convenient since no continents are sliced in half.

Its not technically wrong, North is 'up' and south is 'down just because that's what we're all used to seeing. On a solar system scale of things either direction is fine. I knew a Geography teacher who had one of these purely to make that point.

This is now really counter intuitive. Here south is upwards and east is to the left. And Australians being ascendants of the British Empire, they would have been used to English maps.

All this being said: the first maps, before sailors started using the North Star and compasses for navigation, most maps had east on top of the map(probably because of the sun rising in the east.)

No, the Babylonians invented the idea of maps, Europeans improved it, but they did not invent it.

right Europeans created the modern maps and mapping system based on what the Babylonian's created based on the crude maps the cave men drew.

okay maybe if I use very simple small words so as no to confuse you . "Europeans put themselves in the middle of most maps"-nortledrones
yes they probably did this because they created all the modern maps we commonly use and thus viewed them self as the center of the world.

You really are full of yourself. By claiming that the Europeans recreated something that already existed does not mean you are right. In fact that means you are wrong because the devise was already made by the Babylonians THEN the Europeans adopted it.

The ipod is just an mp3 player with a name.  Apple does not claim to have invented the mp3 player, they just produced the ipod to compete.     
   
The European map is simply an improvement and the idea was probably obtained through trading

they do claim that they invented the Ipod, furthermore the patent office has declared and creation that vastly changes or improves a previously existing invention is in it self a new invention,ergo european maps are an invention in their own right, ergo your a massive fagget. egro I was right .

Poor word choice does make a statement wrong, you did not oversimplify your original statement, you just said it wrong no more no less, do not try to claim you are in the right. Claim responsibility for your actions and quit trying to be elusive by saying people should be able to understand a complicated meaning.

If one is meant to think further into something such as my definition of invention, you would have been able to see that the example you followed up with would have fallen into that category because it merely added features, it did not change what a map did.

You fail to understand why that definition is in place. If the patent office did not allow variation in products, capitalism could not thrive in the US. This definition has a purpose and loses the meaning that it wishes to portray. With this several types of cars can exist. If they adopted a more philosophical definition like mine, all car variations would still simply be cars and therefore who ever came up with it first reaps the benefits.

First of all I said leave.

Second running to find a definition to benefit your cause proves nothing because this definition was made to encompass a broad spectrum of things so that capitalism can thrive.

Third A thing that is designed for a particular task is part of the rest of the items that are designed to do the same thing. All mp3 players are mp3 players, all maps are maps. No new task was accomplished so no new thing was invented. (you cannot say the new task is the location because the task is a record of geographical information)

Continue to argue, our peers already decided who was wrong and who was right before I even got involved, You kept ranting like an ass and I don't even know how you got popular here.

First of all, learn to spell and use Your/You're correctly. It's one thing to not have excellent English skills but trying to claim you are smart and saying your instead of you're does not help.

Next if you word something wrong, you have to accept that you are wrong. If you say something incorrectly that is on you, we cannot tell for sure what you are thinking so we have to use the words you put on the screen.

Lastly, constantly trying to prove you are right does not make you any more or less wrong than you were before. Everyone knows what you said and you handled the situation incorrectly. Your carelessness caused you to look like a complete dumb-ass and I don't see how anyone can respect someone so full of them-self.

it is late at night and I am tired forgive my spelling errors, but a typo or poor choice of a single word does not make your whole statement wrong. you are correct I am wasting my time here I over simplified my original statement thinking there were some semi intelligent people here that would understand and a complicated explanation would not be required; I was mistaken.

I never used thumbs as a way of approval, I used them to show that our peers rejected YOUR views and YOUR vision. You completely failed to think beyond what was displayed in front of you or else you would see the first part of your argument is wrong.

I did use facts gained in my education and common sense would tell YOU to revisit your argument to see how you were wrong. Do not tell someone to use something if you first do not use them.

ha what people on this site feel about my statements is irrelevant I know I am right, I may have worded my first statement poorly but that doesn't make it wrong . if you could read you would see I reiterated my point repeatedly in different ways but your all so dumb I had to spell it out in small words for you to grasp it , as I clearly overestimated the deniziens of fj's intelligence. Do not tell some they are wrong without reading what the wrote !


here it is again for your benefit :
"okay maybe if I use very simple small words so as no to confuse you . "Europeans put themselves in the middle of most maps"-nortledrones
yes they probably did this because they created/made/("invented"-admittedly not the best descriptor) all the modern maps we commonly use and thus viewed them self as the center of the world. "

Ah no. GMT was the time that was set at a busy shipping port and it was very common for people to set their watches to that time, so it became the +0. Basically they thought of a system the rest of the world liked and so uses while americans like you still complain cause it's not a 'MURICAN time system.
