The Holy Bible has never been "corrupted" in any way --
mankind still has full access to the scripture exactly as God first revealed it.

I accept if you put a set definition for corruption.

Differences between various translations does not change the fact that mankind still has full access to the original scripture, exactly as God first revealed it. Also, you failed to provide as much as a single specific example of any supposed "corruption," so you lost. Thanks for your time!

I just wanted a definition we could go by so we wouldn't have to go through semantics

All of the words in my posts are real English words with specific and standard definitions: If you truly do not know the definition of any of the words in my posts, then you are clearly not qualified to participate in this debate, and you should therefore concede your defeat.

Thanks for your time! =)

Okay, here's a list of definitions for corruption
1.
dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power, typically involving bribery.
"the journalist who wants to expose corruption in high places"
synonyms:dishonesty, unscrupulousness, double-dealing, fraud, fraudulence, misconduct, crime, criminality, wrongdoing; More
antonyms:honesty
the action of making someone or something morally depraved or the state of being so.
"the word "addict" conjures up evil and corruption"
synonyms:immorality, depravity, vice, degeneracy, perversion, debauchery, dissoluteness, decadence, wickedness, evil, sin, sinfulness, ungodliness; formalturpitude
"his fall into corruption"
antonyms:morality, purity
archaic
decay; putrefaction.
"the potato turned black and rotten with corruption"
2.
the process by which something, typically a word or expression, is changed from its original use or meaning to one that is regarded as erroneous or debased.
synonyms:alteration, bastardization, debasement, adulteration
"these figures have been subject to corruption"
the process of causing errors to appear in a computer program or database

Clearly, there are many definitions, and if you don't narrow it down, I don't know which type of corruption you're referring to

@Purushadasa No idiot, namely your god, would ever ever ever ever communicate in text form, the worst form of communication. So you automatically lose the debate. After all, why would this supposed god communicate in text so we can all get it wrong with copies upon copies upon copies upon copies and translations upon translation upon translations with absolutely no way to trace those copies and translations back to the original? Wow are you a true idiot sulfuric acid imbecilic moron. Not only that but this god of YOURS, if so powerful, and you have proved that he isn't since he has to use text, well what god would use text instead of simply talking to us? Duh. Not only that, but since text has now been proven as being out, and only faith is left, no god would use faith also. Because what god would use faith because again, this god could simply talk to us, and he could also use some evidence. Oh and btw, the bible, which has been changed by its copies upon copies and translations upon translations has been changed over the thousands of years, so sorry nuclear dinner plate on Saturn's moon Titan, if your god is a god, the bible is not evidence. My my that was fun. Now prove your god even exists.
Please do not post me again unless you have something intelligent to say.

Here's an easy one: you can find quite a lot of significant difference by comparing the World English Bible, the New International Version, and then reading the Hebrew scriptures yourself.
Especially in the parts with disturbing ideas, like Leviticus and Deuteronomy.
