The Long Day of Joshua and Six Other Catastrophesis is a fascinating study of catastrophism in ancient times before 700 B.C. This study has been acclaimed as one of the most startling and important scientific concepts of the 20th Century.
The reader is presented with overwhelming evidence that, for an era of 1700 years, another planet (Mars) repeatedly, or cyclically, made a close fly-by near (or through) the Earth-Moon system. The cycle of ancient near fly-bys averaged once every 54 years.
The fact emerges that the Biblical story of the Long Day of Joshua, far from being an impossible myth, is an accurate, historical account of an event that really happened - an event that can well be described as A PRECESSION OF THE EARTH\'S PLANETARY SPIN AXIS.
Men from many locations on the Earth reported that the Sun departed from its normal path across the heavens, as did the Moon. A contemporary scientist might explain this event as a relocated North Pole, along with a retilted spin axis. These are both part of the spin axis precession phenomena. It would be difficult to have an informed discussion on such topics as ANCIENT HISTORY, RELIGION or COSMOLOGY itself without some knowledge of the facts and theories in this provocative book.
