Question: "Why are so many atheists unwilling to accept that science is just as fallible as they feel that the Bible is?"

“Most atheists are not scientist and only a few would be able to say they have entered into a field of science. There are very few true atheist that have really studied the Bible to the depth of understanding that would allow them to say whether or not it is fallible. An atheist is expressing what he believes, based upon his world view. that worldview basically says that nothing exist outside of what can be experienced with the five senses.
We should truly study the historical facts that the Bible presents. Facts that are based upon the archaeological evidence already existing that support the Bible. We would have to conclude that there is enough scientific (Archaeology is a science) evidence that the spiritual aspects of that Bible are within reason and can be accepted for further scientific research. But they do not take the time to do the research. Instead they trust by faith the philosophical reasoning of their predecessors in condemning something they do not take the time to understand themselves.
True science is not philosophical but is absolute. Truth is absolute. We would be fools to say that we know everything there is to know. To say that the Bible is not true is to say that you were a witness to the events recorded in the Bible and you can prove that they did not happen according to the way they were recorded. That is science. Observable and provable.
Faith has never made the claim that it is science. Faith is believing the record of another as if it truly happened. Faith in God and in the events of the Bible is accepting they are true even though we did not observe them. Accepting the record of another.”
