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

<Instead of answering my question, you rephrased it in a minor way and left the room.>

It needed re-phrasing from the perspective of someone like myself who does not see 'divinely inspired' and 'human literature' as mutually exclusive.

<Answer the question.>

I have already answered your previous question by agreeing with you that the Bible represents Human Literature. Now, for you new question:

<"Divinely inspired" needs justification. I find this idea groundless and even absurd. Why am I wrong?>

The only justification is justification through faith which, as I have admitted on numerous occasions here, is inherently irrational - so I do not neccessarily believe that you are wrong.
