This is an attempt to get this thread back on track. (We all got caught up in the title and not the position presented by the OP. )
This thread is not a discussion about whether there are contradictions between Gen 1 and Gen 2 or whether the stories are scientifically accurate.
This discussion is about whether the contradictions presented by the originator disproves that the Bible is inerrant.
This contradiction seems to debunk the inerrancy of the bible. This thread is to provide a place for debate as to whether or not it actually does.
His position is:
My point of view is that if the creation story is not reliable, any book of the bible quoting creation or stating scriptural infallibility is unreliable, any book quoting those books is unreliable, and so on.
