Ya gonna tell us what leviathan was?

Probably a whale.

It's also been know since ancient cultures didn't have a great understanding of the distant past. They assumed a lot of things. Like thinking a mammoth skull ways a cyclopes. So may be they found a skeleton of a Basilosaurus and it let their imaginations run wild.

Not so much, apparently.

No where in the Bible does it claim to be literally inerrant.

It claims divine inspiration in terms of its teachings.

Picking out literal mistakes is a straw man because it does nothing to affect the inspiration of the stories or the teachings.

The literal, mathematical, historical and scientific mistakes are just that... literal mistakes by humans, translations or understandings of the time period and in no way affect the message or the point of what is being conveyed.

Are you saying that they couldn't have gotten the 'message wrong' even though they got other things wrong?

That doesn't make sense. If one area can be dismissed as human error so can all the other areas be looked at with skepticism.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Yeah, that's trying to have your cake and eat it too. If the writers demonstrate error and ignorance in what they write, then what they write can indeed be called into question. Demonstrating ignorance and error in regards to one subject doesn't mean they are infallible in another! Facepalm
