Because really, there is no "top" to the Earth. To take apart a globe and mount the Earth "upside-down" in its frame, really does not in any way detract from the accuracy and usefulness of that globe. It is still a legitimate representation of the Earth, and the position in my be observed from in space.
What kind of a radical heretic are you, coming in here and saying that our maps show a ficticious upside???? North is always up. A few hundred years ago you could be burned for this.

How do you explain photos of the earth from space always showing the north pole at the top of the picture?

gee, I hope everyone knows I'm kidding.
