Not necessarily so, good man. Depends on whether you buy into divine inspiration. If man was effectively nothing more than God's pencil (basically DArt's "dictation" model), then you could still have an infallible document.

I think the better argument would be to attack man's understanding of the document. Since man is, by definition, fallible, he can't possibly correctly interpret everything that's in the book. That keeps you clear of any debate on the book itself since the (im?)perfection of the document becomes moot.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
