Earth Measure Geometry – Exposition One:
(Note the earth is like a gyroscope in space, axis wobbling while it spins, rotating around the sun.)
Geometry means earth measure, the ancient term used centuries before the Greek Eratosthenes “first measured the earth,” who but in reality measured it rather crudely, to only 5% accuracy, having simultaneously (by hour glasses) measured shadows at two locations in Egypt to calculate the distance between them, and so, the earth’s circumference was roughly extrapolated there from, having known the earth is a sphere.
So WHO must have measured the globe much more accurately long before the time of Eratosthenes, to have equated the angles and forms of triangles relating to spheres to the true size of the earth, necessarily by much more accurate time measurement?
To measure East to West distances precisely, marked now by the North to South arcs of longitude on the globe, requires accurate timekeeping, which Eratosthenes crudely achieved when measuring solar time by shadows.
