This is the Fundamentalist Forum. Just about any topic can be raised. Topics that are dedicated to specific issues (such as calvinism and arminianism) are welcome here. What is not welcome here are any issues that do/might call into question the integrity and inerrancy of Scripture. BrianT, I understand your point. I do not agree. I think DocCas gave alot of sources that would not agree with you. On this particular issue, you should take it up with the version forum and debate it there. The thread about the dead soldiers is about what happened to them, not how many there were. I hope you understand. I have never discouraged your posting in this forum.
