Consider the fact that there is not one verse that contradicts any other verse and no verse has ever be proven to not happen considering prophecy, and that no verse has ever been invalid from a scientific standpoint.
I don't see it as proof. I see it as just another religious text. I don't think there's any reason to believe it's special or particularly true. It was written by humans, and coincidentally reflects the views of people at the time. I don't think there's any reason to believe it was divinely inspired.
1 Kings 7:23 is flat out wrong.
I hear from some Muslims about the Quran, and how the Quran is written in this completely unique literary style unlike any other in Arabic. So unique, that it challenges people to attempt to write a chapter in a similar form, and nobody can do it. They claim that this is proof that it must be authored by God.
I say that to say, many people of all different religions think their holy book is unique and indescribable and unexplainable without their god. Why is yours any different from the others who claim their book to be something divinely inspired?
