Jeez, are y'all suddenly a bunch of Preeqs, that things have to be explained to you step by step.
"Good Book" says God stopped the sun, as HBJ just pointed out. In its daily course across the sky.
So the Jews could have more time that day to beat up on another bunch of people who did nothing wrong besides get in their way.
Since we all know the Sun never did go around the Earth, for the Bible account to be true, the Earth would have had to have stopped rotating.
And sure, if God could stop the Earth rotating, he could stop the atmosphere and oceans as well, all while keep the Earth travelling in its normal orbit and not suddenly plunging into the Sun (it's our inertia and angular momentum what keeps us from doing so normally) or flying off into space....
My, didn't the world used to be simpler.
