Ah, not so, good man. If we assume the "dictation" model, which makes man nothing but God's mindless pencil, the document must be perfect or else God would have made a mistake. After all, if He's holding the pencil, you'd have to assume that the pencil is writing exactly what's intended, otherwise He'd be making a mistake.

Of course, by my lights it's all been bastardized to the point of losing all meaning anyway, but the logical gyrations can be entertaining.

edit- actually what I'm working from goes a little beyond true dictation since I'm basically taking away all free will. Perhaps I should call it the "possession" model instead.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
