The day the Sun stood still

In the Book of Joshua, chapter 10, Joshua asks God to stop the world and make the sun stand still for “about a full day.” God complied and Joshua won a great battle.

Of course everyone scoffs at such an unbelievable story and even Snopes.com tries to debunk it. Scientists laugh at such a preposterous idea.

But when the Spanish conquistadores arrived in Peru five hundred years ago, they were amazed to hear stories from the natives that long, long ago in the ancient past the sun refused to rise for almost a full day.
