Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.

And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day. And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel….Joshua 10

One of the evidences for the historicity of the long day recorded in Joshua 10:13 and reiterated in Habakkuk 3:11 lies in the large body of traditions from many parts of the world according to which there was a long day (or night, or evening, depending upon the location) at about the same time that Joshua lived.

David Nelson dramatically informs us of this fact as follows: Chinese history speaks of Yao, their king, declaring that in his reign the sun stood so long above the horizon that it was feared the world would have been set on fire; and fixes the reign of Yao at a given date, which corresponds with the age of Joshua the son of Nun. . . .

Ahmedabad: Mystery shrouds the discovery of a giant-size skeleton of a yet to be identified animal, found partly buried on the bank of Pampa Sarovar near Subir village in Dangs district.

The skeleton was exposed after the earth on the bank of the Sarovar was washed away in the recent heavy floods in the district.

Initial reports reaching here from the Dangs said the skeleton is 15 ft long. It has long bones, long thin nails and jaws with sharp canine teeth.

When contacted, Dangs collector J Jadhav said that he visited the site along with the civil surgeon and veterinary doctors from the district headquarters at Ahwa. Since the skeleton is partly buried in the earth, they could not identify the animal.

Meanwhile, a team of Archaeological Survey of India is expected to reach the village shortly to examine the skeleton and identify it
