Yes it works fine on a flat earth with a small local sun

How does a lunar eclipse work, perchance?

Also, why is every other planet and celestial object round?

So do you believe a rock can reflect light hundreds of thousands of mile to millions of miles have you ever seen any rock reflect light as bright as a light? Planets are not what your told and the lights in the sky don’t have anything to do with the shape of the earth. Is the moon a circle yes, is it a ball maybe you can’t tell since we only see one side.

The moon reflects light at a tiny fraction of what is emitted by the sun, first of all. Look directly at the moon, look directly at the sun... the damage to your retina will prove this part.

Also, yes, many rocks are very reflective. Quartz containing rocks in particular. Ever seen Pyrite (fools gold)? It is mirror-reflective. Try talc and gypsum rocks, they were crushed and used to make reflective markings in the past before plastics and polymers.

Planets are not what your told and the lights in the sky don’t have anything to do with the shape of the earth.

There is much of reality that I question or at least consider alternate possibilities for. The shape of the planets is not one because it is either false or pointless, and can be nothing else.

It is pointless in the sense that "simulation theory" is pointless. I will explain: If we are intelligent ai in a 'computer' simulation, then it is pointless to worry over this because it makes no difference and is not actionable... code cannot exist outside a computer, we cannot exist outside the medium of our reality (which is consciousness itself). If this is a simulation, then it is clear that the planets are meant to represent spheres (where in the reality of simulation they are nothing but code) so there is no reason for them not to be, it does not now, nor will it ever make a difference to your life. It is a distraction and waste of mental energy.

The alternative is that this is all false. However if this is all false, that means that all human thought is also false for the foundation of thought is logic. Logic is the use of observation and interpolation to form theories of reality. If all observation is false, all logic is false and we are dumb animals because this implicitly leads to the conclusion that when you look in the mirror, you are seeing a picture related to nothing, and unlike every other person, you have no fave at all.

Since the fact of your own face is, to your own perception, exactly like our knowledge of planets: based upon logic and observing predictable effects upon other objects as well as similarity to other objects: i.e. every other person you see has a face, so logic dictates you must also have one and you can only test this by looking at the result of light reflecting off of your face and onto another object.

Now, if you want to ponder whether the moon is a natural or an engineered object, that is different.
