<Like all the rest, your starting point is a devinly inspired Bible, even though much of it is clearly BS. Would it not be more logical to regard it as human literature, reflecting the knowledge and beliefs of one small tribe of people living thousands of years ago?>

To be precise, my starting point is a Bible which represents divinely inspired human literature.

No. To be precise, your starting point is a Bible which claims to be "divinely inspired," but for which there is no external evidence that this is the case.

The Koran also claims to be "divinely inspired."

You're merely accepting that claim from the Bible at face value and rejecting the claim from the Koran for no better reason than you have for accepting the same claim from the Bible.
