    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.
