Funny story from when I was a kid.
I never really had any formal debates with a theist but when I was a kid my parents used to force me of course to go to church. I was asking alot of questions so my mom took me to see the pastor. He gave me a commentary book on Daniel. When I came to the end of the book it said that certain verses may have been added on by another author. I thought that was hilarious since the bible is supposed to be error free. I wonder if the pastor had even read his own book! Here's what I'm talking about:

Quote:7 The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, “It will be for a time, times and half a time.[b] When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, all these things will be completed.”

8 I heard, but I did not understand. So I asked, “My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?”

9 He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end. 10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.11 “From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. 12 Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days.

13 “As for you, go your way till the end. You will rest, and then at the end of the days you will rise to receive your allotted inheritance.”
Daniel chapter 12 verses 7 to 13

The verses are referencing a Syrian king who occupied Israel. The pastor's commentary book said verses may have been added on to the change the time the occupation was supposed to last.

I seriously doubt most have read their books. The books are usually for show...
