There are many pictures of the valley of elah, where this battle took place, just do a search on yahoo. It is my belief that Goliath having a helmet of any kind, is not a valid argument for him to not be hit in the forehead, As he likely would have pushed his helmet up to see better, not taking David as a serious threat, and as for Goliath falling face down after being hit with a slingstone, as an army medic I can tell you that a bullit will not knock a forward moving soldier on his back, how much less a stone, smaller than an egg, would knock backward someone of goliaths stature.  His head would have rocked back, but not his body, it would have fallen forward. I believe it happened exsactly like it is described in the KJV Bible. He was done for, even before David lopped his head off with his own sword.  By the way, in " the complete works of Josephus" a famous historian, there is also an account of this story. That agrees with the Bible

Many "True Christians" here in America believe that the KJV is the one true Bible. According to them, it was written by Jesus himself, in English.

NO. They are very ignorant of history. It doesn't fit their view of the world.

LOL, what I meant was that they added a few more cubits to Goliath's height.

Here's an interesting and somewhat measured article that reflects on 3 extra-biblical discoveries related to King David: https://theophilogue.com/2009/04/24/extrabiblical-evidence-for-king-david/
