    I think you have to take the old Testament with the proverbial pinch of salt. Just stories to explain things by people who knew very little.

      You have a good perspective on that.

    I believe that God can create miracles even when we go through storms.  So yes I believe that the sun stood still until Joshua was able to fight off his enemies.  As the scripture says "there was never a day like it before or since, a day when the Lord listened to a man".  Joshua cried out to the Lord to keep it daylight until the war was over.  God heard Joshua and did as requested.  smile

    I believe in miracles, including the miracle of the sun standing still.  They're part of God's awesome Omnipotence.

    If the Bible reports it as having happened, It happened. God is capable of doing anything He chooses to do.

    I believe what The Bible said about that.  Otherwise why write about it?   I also believe that scientists are baffled by the loss in time...( I am not baffled)

    Since the earth revolves around the sun, the sun wouldn't be the one standing still.

    BACK IN THE 80'S   when the space shuttle was to be launched and scientists could not go ahead with it because of a days missing in space.

    The searched and searched and finally a young man on the NASA team said he remembered something from his Sunday school class. Hezekiah (Isaiah 38:8) asked that the sun be moved back and the Bible says it was moved back 10 degrees , which is 40 minutes. Also during a battle - Joshua 10:12-14 - the sun stood still about an whole day -

    So when they put these two together the missing day was found and the shuttle was then scheduled. So science had to once again give in and prove that the Bible is real and true and also that God exists - ....

      That story is a baseless legend that has been debunked and disproved time and time again. Just takes a little bit of research. Boy oh Christians and your fables...
