The Moon equation

I was looking at the moon tonight and it seemed that within the overall relationships there, is the size of the earth also. The solid angles and degree of illumination are not exact, but the scale is obvious from its appearance. It seems it should have been easy for any early observer to deduce the general structure of the solar system from that alone, by observations over a month's time. I wonder why it was so prevalent that the Earth was flat or that it rode upon a tortoise. It seems to me the people who decided on that explanation were a bit off their best work or perhaps they were just catering to an audience that wanted that show.
