How is the solar eclipse possible in the flat earth model?

Title says it all.

If we look at this image. Then according to the FE-model, the moon never blocks the sun.
Then how is a solar eclipse possible?

I think they rely on a 'shadow object' or some separate entity which only ever appears during an eclipse. They talk about eclipses here: http://wiki.tfes.org/Lunar_Eclipse

That doesn't work...at all. Do they even think this nonsense through?

No, it's all ad hoc.
I am the worst moderator ever.

Sometimes I wonder: "Why am  I on this site?"
Then I look at threads about clouds not existing and I go back to posting and lurking. Lurk moar.

I would be less surprised to see a pig fly then I would be to see a flat earther thinking something through.
I am having a video war with Jeranism.
See the thread about it here.

Depending on who you ask, they might not be planets. Apparently the Earth's the only 'planet'. I know a few say others provide their own light.

Stick close , very close , to your P.C.and never go to sea
And you all may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Look out your window , see what you shall see
And you all may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Chorus:
Yes ! Never, never, never,  ever go to sea !

That is not even talking about solar eclipses...
I said "solar eclipse", not "lunar eclipse"...
