NASA scientist discovers missing day

There are various ULs about someone in NASA
discovering a missing day with various biblical
explanations. I think this legend orginates from
Magellan’s first circumnavigation of the globe
nearly 500 years ago. When they finished
the journey three years later their logbook
indicated that they were missing a whole day.
That’s because there was no International Dateline
to take into account they missed a rotation of
the Earth.

Try looking here. Snopes is great, innit?

The above is what we refer to around here as a simulpost.

A simulpost, but neither of you remembered to mention Cecil’s column on this topic –Did scientists discover a “missing day” as predicted in the Bible? For shame! Remember – our Cecil is a jealous Cecil, and you shall have no other reference sources before him (i.e. it is okay to mention supplimentary sources, but only after first referencing Him).

Now say three “Hail Cecils” and buy a copy of Return of the Straight Dope – the book which contains this particular column. And please memorize the entire table of contents.
