When we say numbers beginning with "1" (eg 100), why do we sometimes say "1" and sometimes "a"?
For example, it is ok to say either "a hundred" or "one hundred", but it would be strange to say "a hundred and twenty three thousand".. Is there a rule?
"a" is a singular word, in many cases it can replace the word "one" because it holds the same meaning:
A apple = 1 apple
A house = 1 house

Why does everyone think that the Bible was written and put together by God? Don't people realize that there are many holy books and manuscripts that have been excluded from the Bible? St. Thomas Aquinas wrote one and it was omitted from the Bible by a group of people a few hundred years after Jesus...
