It is almost impossible to prove that any book was divinely inspired. Especially without any solid verification from the aforementioned deity. Most likely because such books require the follower to rely on faith as opposed to truth.
Let's just say that any book that was written about the area around Israel and Syria is likely to also contain prophetical stories about the end of those same areas. Hence the lack of reference to some disastrous events occurring in someplace like, say, Brooklyn, for example.

Religion, any religion, and politics do not play well together.

a divinely inspired would not have glaring errors in it, would it? nor outright lies?

One would think not. But that is where blind faith comes in to the picture.

Personally, I tend to believe that if there is indeed a "creator" of the universe, that said creator is akin to some giant, cosmic, road tripper,(a Clark Griswold if you will), who flicked a lit cigarette out the car window and in some unknowing and or uncaring fashion, did not realize that he, or she, had just ignited the Big Bang. And has not been back this way since. But hey, what do I know.

Thanks. It is no more or less plausible than any of the myriad other explanations. One can believe whatever one chooses in this life but no on will really know until they die. Or not.

Absolutely. Loved the BBC series and even the movie version of Hitchhikers Guide. There is also a radio series I have heard bits and pieces of.

Again, thanks. You should start with the radio series and work your way up. I imagine it is probably available on line somewhere, probably for free.

In the recent (2005) movie version, they cast Alan Rickman as the voice of Marvin. A perfect choice for a manically depressed robot.
Martin Freeman played Dent, Arthur Dent. He did pretty well.
