This article (NASA scientists found a day missing (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.

Claim CE010:

NASA scientists, using computers to track planetary motions, discovered that a day of time was missing, corresponding to Biblical accounts of the sun's standing still for Joshua for almost a day, plus the sun moving backwards 40 minutes for Hezekiah.

CreationWiki response:

(Talk Origins quotes in blue)

1. The claim is an urban legend whose origin goes back to 1890. It is entirely baseless. Indeed, it could not be true. There is no frame of reference to measure against to determine whether a day was missing thousands of years ago.

This response is correct. No reputable creationist would make this claim in the first place.
