1. It has clout because it was in text when other religions were only spoken.
a) It doesn't have clout because it was written. It has "clout" because it is the written word of God.
b) Before the Bible came into current form, ancient biblical traditions were also orally passed down, until the Jews realised that they needed to write it down so that they can refer to it for fear that they will forget God's commandments and fall into trouble.
It's a common misconception that other religions do not have religious texts. But they do. The Hindus have the Bhagavad Gita and the Veda; the Buddhist have their own scriptures; Islam have their Quran. The only difference is that they can add supplemental texts to their main texts, whereas the Christian Bible does not allow any other forms of supplemental texts.
2. But it’s outdated.
The values and principles found in the Bible are timeless. The Bible also clearly reflects the human condition, which is also timeless, expressed in different eras. Things are not much different now than it was before, hence the perceived cruelty and violence found in the Bible. The Bible hence gives a handle on what God expects.
3. It comes from a broken nation.
Sure. What significance is this statement to be?
4. We were Pagan much longer.
I don't understand.
5. It doesn’t apply to posthuman problems.
Refer points #1 & #2.
6. I say we give it enough respect for a proper burial, then on to the future spirituality.
Honestly, I'd like to see you try. The Bible has survived since the ancient times and has kept to the accuracy of the message even today. Nothing - no situation or persons - has been able to thwart the dissemination of the Word, so you can try. But there is no doubt that there is no way to eliminate the work and Word of God.

That very much depends on what kind of evidence you claim you have seen. From experience, people who claim they have seen evidence actually have not done adequate research, let alone legitimate ones to talk about this. So, unless you have something concrete for us to examine, then there's no need to go further.
