Round 1 - First argument
Round 2 - Rebuttal
Round 3 - Conclusion

The Bible has been around for thousands of years. Over those times, couldn't it be possible that its contents have been changed?

For example, take the first 5 books of the Bible, the Pentateuch. These were passed on by word of mouth until it was written, presumably by Moses. Now I believe everyone of us knows of the fallibility of the tongue. There are bound to be minor changes that, over time, will accumulate to the point that the majority of the Bible's contents would be so distant from the original version.

As such, I argue that the Bible's contents, especially those in the Old Testament, aren't 100% accurate.
