The Argument From Inconsistent Revelations is based upon the many number of interpretations of Holy Texts and Scripture. If Scripture was revealed to man by God, and God is infallible, then all revelations would be the same, inerrent text.

But contradictions and vagaries, still remain in the Bible, and other holy texts of other religions. As a result, there are many different groups of people, with many different interpretations.

So, therefore, God cannot exist in the capacity that Christians say he is, because his own writings betray his capacity for error, or betray his non-existence. Either God is fallible, or humans wrote the Bible and God was not involved. Needless to say, Christians don't like to agree with the former.
