What evidence is there supporting “the day the sun stood still” in the bible in Joshua 10?
There are reports of extended daylight from lands on the same side of the world as Joshua. There are reports of extended darkness in lands on the opposite side of the world from Joshua. And, there are even reports of extended periods during which the sun stayed on the horizon - coming from guess where? The part of the world on the border between those regions of darkness and light!
The interesting point of this is that the extended darkness reports come from the part of the world that WOULD be dark if the events of Joshua 10 took place. The extended light reports are about parts of the world that would be light, if the events of Joshua 10 did take place. And, the Fiji report (of the sun on the horizon) is from the area where the border between light and night would be!
Places with reports of extended light included Egypt, China, India.
Extended darkness is reported to have been experienced in North America by various Indian tribes (including Omaha, Ojibway, Wyandot and others). There are reports of a long night for the Aztecs and Mayas of Central America. Peru in South America has its tale of 20 hours of darkness.1
There are reports of extended periods of neither total darkness nor total light with the sun hanging on the horizon for inordinately long periods, from the Fiji Islands.
This is pretty amazing.
