On a hot August evening, Anu Nadella's son, Zain, was born via an emergency cesarean.
Exodus does not specify how or if the men were armed unless perhaps Exodus Yet it does not seem to occur to the fleeing Israelites to fight back against the pursuing Egyptians. They behave like a small band of trapped refugees. Other Bible sources, such as the census that was taken later, indicate a much smaller number of Hebrew refugees.
The sun moved backwards for Joshua and for Hezekiah. It was a sin to make up this hoax. It is a smaller sin to propagate it without verifying the facts, but certain evangelists do just that.
The idea behind the story is to make up some scientific-sounding story to explain a Biblical event. This pattern appears later in creationism literature, in supplying details of the catastrophes claimed to be part of the Flood events.
My objection to the Biblical story is that I don't see how this could have happened without leaving some geological trace, and without the Book of Jashar mentioned in Joshua Certain sections of the Bible imply that the Joshuan conquest was a sudden sweeping through the land of Canaan.
Archeology suggests that the conquest was gradual, over a period of a hundred years or so, and so do certain other Biblical texts.
If those are the only problems, then the accuracy of the Bible after Genesis 11 compares favorably with other ancient literature the Iliad.
The examples cited above are trivial and are not important to Salvation. The point is, if those three are all the inaccuracies we can complain about, then the Bible after Genesis 11 is rock-solid as a historical source.

I will only say that it sounds suspicious against other Biblical accounts, archaeology, and other historical sources. An Egyptian account of the Exodus story that confirms the Biblical number could be found tomorrow. Miracles Everything else in the Bible that's out of the ordinary is a bona fide miracle.
A miracle is God's temporary suspension of natural laws in response to human need. The turning of water into wine by Jesus is reported as a miracle, so let's believe it that way. We can also believe that God could stop the sun for Joshua and Hezekiah without causing enormous tidal waves.
It's okay to believe that the "extra water" of the Flood came from the hand of God, and then returned to His hand when the Flood was over. The crossing of the Red Seathe stopping of the Jordan River, the destruction of Jericho - these are all miracles enacted by God Almighty.
The occurrence of an extremely unlikely event that serves human need can also be viewed as a miracle. The birth of Isaac to Abraham and Sarah in their old age was a miracle Genesis However, one had better be very sure that the probabilities have been evaluated correctly, or risk disillusionment later when a more likely mechanism is discovered.
It is certainly difficult to flip coins and have them all come up heads - unless you work on the first one, the second one, and then the third one, and so on until you have heads this process took me only nine minutes. The arising of life on earth is indeed a miracle, but we don't need to base our faith on a flawed mathematical analysis.
