Yes, that idea has occurred to many people. In major portions of the
Christian community, however, that would be considered heresy of the highest
order. For such folk, protecting the Bible from this form of critical
examination is given top priority. Recall a suggestion I have made here
before -- look at the 'statement of faith' portion of creationist or other
conservative Christian web sites and note how often the very first statement
is a declaration about biblical inerrancy, followed later in the list by
statements about God and Jesus. Priorities are interesting things.
