I've already seen Peter Phillips' response to this question. I only want to
say two things in response to Andrew's question:

(1) I think it is neither profitable nor appropriate to discuss the
doctrine of inerrancy on this forum.

(2) I think that inerrantists and scholars and those who view themselves
either as either or neither or both inerrantists and scholars ought to feel
equally welcome to participate in list discussions, and I don't think
there's any privilege attached to any one of those categories here.
