      These maps place the island of Japan near Cuba and leave the South American continent — Vespucci's "New World" proper — detached and floating below by itself. Zheng He, intrepid explorer though he was, gets 1 out of 5 Skeptoid Plausibility Points, and Liu Gang has a deficit of about 15 points.
