Then you have a lot of reading to catch up on--books by people who don't 
address the "Divine Origin" of the Torah at all--but are still motivated to 
vindicate its general accuracy.  And yet most of these still point out 
inconsistencies and anachronisms.
They exist because the Torah was written by humans who can have lapses in 
knowledge and make errors.  Believe me, whoever wrote, for example, that Joseph 
had access to "silver money" was not guided by a higher power.
