There are also corresponding accounts from the opposit side of this planet that for one day the earth was dark as the sun didn't rise.
Why go back to ancient times energy_wave?
The Sun allegedly stopped at Fatima, as revealed in this
October 13, 1917:
"At midday the sun suddenly appeared in the cloud-covered sky. It rotated fantastically, shooting off colored rays, its rim a rainbow. It was not too
bright to gaze upon. The crowd watched with smiles. It was said that the sun began to roam among the clouds, half disappearing behind cloud puffs.
From time to time it would stop and spin fantastically as at first.
Finally it became stationary and pulsated. Without warning it hurtled toward the crowd, growing brighter and hotter. People screamed and cried for
pardon from their sins. The children called to the crowd to pray. As quickly as the phenomenon had begun it reversed itself. The sun returned to the
clouds. It took on its usual bland noonday brilliance. A great wind arose but the trees did not bend. The soggy ground where the people had stood was
now baked mud. Everyone's clothes were dry."
However, faith is a strange thing - other people around the world *didn't* report anything "amiss" with the Sun's ie Earth's behaviour that day,
so I leave you to speculate as to the "truth" of the matter - paranormal event, quirky physics, mass hysteria...??
Incidentally, have you any sources, please, for your claim that:
"There are also corresponding accounts from the opposit side of this planet that for one day the earth was dark as the sun didn't rise." ??
I'm intrigued and would appreciate more guidance. Thanx in advance!!
