This means the shadow of the Earth is visible on the Moon, and a clearly round shape can be seen while the Moon is entering and leaving the eclipse. The fact that a ship disappears from the view at the horizon proves the earth is round. The ability to think critically about evidence that's presented on various topics enables logic, and he believes that if today's students were taught to think logically, there wouldn't be so many people who still believe Earth is flat.
