Interestingly, the Quran states in several places that the Christian and Jewish scriptures are the inerrant Word of God. Thus, every error found in the Bible would seem to be automatically a flaw in the foundation of Islam.

After them we sent forth Jesus, the son of Mary, confirming the Torah already revealed, and gave him the Gospel, in which there is guidance and light, corroborating what as revealed before it in the torah, a guide and admonition to the righteous.
Therefore let those who follow the Gospel judge according to what God has revealed therein. Evil-doers are those that do not judge according to God's revelations.
Quran 5:46, 47 (Dawood)

Tangential side note: A hotel I stayed at in Bangkok had the New Testament, and something called "Teachings of the Buddha". Already quite familiar with the first, I thumbed through the latter for the basic ideas.
