Of course the Bible hasn't been 'proven historically true in every detail', It has not been proven false in any detail either.

It actually has been proven false a few times.

Sigh...rabbits chew cud? How did Judas die? How can an all-powerful God be defeated by Iron Chariots? How many legs do insects have? Are bats birds or mammals? How did Noah round up all the animals on Earth? And how did he keep them fed, and contained on his ark without killing each other?
Just the obvious ones...

And when exactly was the last time a snake or a burning bush convinced you to do anything?
So, was woman created before or after the animals?
Who was Joseph's father?
How did King Saul die?
The Bible proves itself false.
Count the number of legs on an ant, then return to me.
Please be Poe. This is insipid, even by fundie standards.

Yes, except that if Jesus was born during the census of Quirinius, he can't have been born during the time period where Herod was king. They just don't overlap, I'm sorry. (That and Joseph wpuldn't have been returning going to Bethlehem during the census simply because David was his ancestor. I'm sorry, but that's not how the census was done.)
Unless your claiming that Jesus was born twice the Bible has to be wrong in either saying he was born during the reign of King Herod or that he was born during the census of Quirinius. I'm sorry, but the claim that he was born under both has been proven false beyond any reasonable doubt.

If I had five cents for every biblical claim that has been shot down by the flames of reason I could buy Manhattan.
Or at the very least put down a sizeable deposit.
Oh, so what about the Israelites being slaves in Egypt? That never happened, it's a proven fact.
It's all false, liar.
There are at least 83 self-contradictions in Genesis alone.
Do these people ever actually read the damn thing?
The fact that the Bible hasn't been proven in every detail gives us the right to doubt some details.
So Jesus was killed before the Passover sedar, as John says, and after, as the other gospels say. And yet, the bible also says that Jesus died once for sin.
Dang, that's even harder to sort out then the trinity.
The continuing existence of the city of Tyre.
Except for that whole sun moving around all weird thing. And everything that's not that.
