Sun Did Stand Still

I've enjoyed the discussion on Joshua's long day.
I just happened upon an old issue of Bible-Science Newsletter of June
1991. It has an article on Joshua's incident by Johnson C. Phillip
(Creation Research Society of India). He states that Herodotus refers to
an Egyption priest showing him their records of a day lasting twice as
long, in addition he refers to Chinese, Mexicans (which ones ?), Incas,
Babylonians, Persians, Polynesians and Indian (India) traditions of a
long day. There are no references to real sources given.
Can anybody help me, or is this hog-wash ?
He does refer to the astronomer stories as being completely fiction.
