"Conspiracy"

I saw on this site that the earth and moon function as "spotlights", essentially.
Or at least that was the reason given for why you can't see the sun and moon at all times.
But this doesn't seem to add up.
Wouldn't you see an eclipse instead of a sunset on the horizon? Why can't you see the "edge" of the spotlight ever?

I've asked about 10 times, still no answer to the great elipse/size changing mystery.
