The Soviet body count was so high because of the way they fought with complete disregard for their own men. Their primary tactic was to overwhelm the enemy with poorly equip infantry. They would employ human wave attacks and shoot soldiers who refused to go. If they fled they would shoot their comrades in their place.

At the end of the war they essentially wasted a million men to get to Berlin before the Allies. Rather than let an already ending war take it's natural course, they needlessly got even more aggressive with their push through Germany and resorted to the tactic of "Throw men at it until it dies".

The thing about casualties is irrelevant, it's comparing the casualties of a country (United States) that never even had a battle fought in it (in WWII) to the casualties of a country (Russia) that was invaded and suffered massive civilian casualties.

All it states is that for every American killed in military action, 21 Soviets were killed, it doesn't specify military or civilian or a time, which indicates that it means total Soviets (Military and Civilian) killed throughout the war, which would mean that it would include civilian casualties which for the Soviets were massive

Whenever you are referring to a living creature, the correct tense is hanged.
When referring to an inanimate object, the correct tense is hung.

Which is why the overall casualty rate was like 1:1.3 in favour of the Germans. If the strategy was really mass-wave attacks, then the Soviets were superhumans.

They didn't, they often had only enough rifles for half their troops, so one man held the rifle and the other held an extra clip, if the rifleman died a bullet man would pick up the rifle and keep going.

Pretty sure Joshua form the Old Testament is referenced in the New Testament; wouldn't that mean lexical scholars could just compare the name of Joshua being referenced the the name of Jesus elsewhere and find it different? Also it was koine Greek.   
   
Second one I was wondering about, isn't the construction of the pyramids a mystery? Last I heard they had no idea how such massive and complex structures were built with what was available at the time (although admittedly I do not really keep up with ancient Egyptian pyramid news), how would they know it was entirely paid labor and not slaves when the other details are unknown?

From what I have heard they uncovered some evidence that at least some if not all of the labourers were paid. I have not looked into or followed new developments in the area so I don't know if they've changed their estimates on the percentage of paid vs unpaid or what else has changed.

Well they weren't exactly Israeli at the time seeing as then Israel was called Canaan. nobody called it Israel until the then liberated Jews conquered it roughly 40 years later and decided to name it for one of their patriarchs.

Related:

During the Salem witch trials, witches weren't the only people burned. gays were burned as well, but were viewed to be lower than the witches, so they were often used to fuel the fires to burn the witches instead of using bundles of sticks.

Hence the term "flaming faggot".

You realize of course that faggot was the term for a bundle of sticks used to fuel fires right? And that the term flaming faggot referred to these things catching on fire. In fact here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faggot_(slang)

Inform yourself.

SERIOUSLY? I understand you need to feel superior by attempting to win an argument on the internet but when I post an article you could at least consider reading it before you rapidly reply and demonstrate the amount of ignorance you have.

I would tell you to read the article but since you didn't bother to do that the first time I posted I've pulled the relevant paragraph for you:

"It is sometimes claimed that the modern slang meaning developed from the standard meaning of "faggot" as "bundle of sticks for burning," presumably with reference to burning at the stake.[6] It is true that supposed witches and heretics were burnt to death in some parts of Europe, and were often accused of deviant sexual behaviour.[9] However, any association of the term faggot with executions had long become a historical curiosity by the time the slang sense of the word arose in twentieth-century America.[6] Moreover, burning was never prescribed as a punishment for homosexuality in either Britain or America"

Believe it or not, a saying doesn't always come from fact. Flaming faggot arose because people thought that homosexuals were also burned.

You're thinking too literally.

You realize I pulled that directly from the Wikipedia article Faggot (slang): Faggot, often shortened to fag, is a pejorative term broadly meaning an effeminate gay man.

Directly from the article with very little critical thought on my part. Simply presented evidence that is strongly counter to the statement you made in an attempt to disprove your assertion. It is not something I am personally involved in researching. However, the article states the term faggot probably derives for the term for an older female and earlier a "faggot-gatherer."

Directly from the article:

"The origins of the word as an offensive epithet for homosexuals are rather obscure, although the word has been used in English since the late 16th century as an abusive term for women, particularly old women,[7] and reference to homosexuality may derive from this,[6][8] as female terms are often used with reference to homosexual or effeminate men (cf. nancy, sissy, queen). The application of the term to old women is possibly a shortening of the term "faggot-gatherer", applied in the 19th century to people, especially older widows, who made a meagre living by gathering and selling firewood"

It is likely that this is where the term faggot derives from and the flaming aspect derives from one of the meanings of flaming prior to it being attached to homosexuals or faggots: www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=flaming&allowed_in_frame=0

To put it another way: Flaming faggot is a clever play on words meaning either a pile of sticks meant for burning which are on fire or a homosexual of strong passions (ie a very obvious homosexual).

In other words, there's really nothing wrong with my initial post. The reason that people use the term "flaming faggot" as an insult to gay people could have just as likely originated from what I stated as not.

but flamer "glaringly conspicuous person or thing" (1809) and flaming "glaringly conspicuous" (1781) are much earlier in the general sense, both originally with reference to "wenches."

Your initial post was incorrect and I have left supporting evidence every step of the way to dissuade you whereas you have given no evidence to support your erroneous claim. If you read the articles and information from the links I posted it should be glaringly obvious to you that the term flaming faggot derives from sources other than burning gay people. However, if it not obvious to you I have no further need to present my point. As I stated it should be glaring obvious to any but the most close minded or incognizant individual and thus any further post on my part on this topic would be a waste of my time.
