"You can say the same thing for The Quran". Yes, you can state that, but it's not true, since there are contradictions in The Quran. I, along with the many other people I have debated on here, on other places, and in real life, have found no contradictions that cannot be explained in The Bible.
Because you now have access to all the information in the universe to judge that there is not a single piece of information in the bible that is not inaccurate? If there were information that you didn't know that were to contradict the bible, you wouldn't know it. We can assume there is information that we don't know that contradicts ideas we hold because for everyone, it has happened numerous times. It happens for most ideas we hold at some point or another. Are the opinions we hold on theology exempt? Of course not. To hold the opinion that you've revised your opinion to absolute infallibility after being on this planet for not even 20 years, is possibly the most intellectually dishonest thing we can tell ourselves. I'm not suggesting we all go and change our opinions because they're wrong. They're our opinions. There are reasons we hold them. We believe them to be true, but we should also be able to acknowledge that we are human and our interpretations are subject to error, even if you believe your god not to be.
As for biblical contradictions...
"The Lord is a warrior;
the Lord is his name."
"The God of peace be with you all. Amen."
This isn't a contradiction in and of itself. It shows two different sides of the character God, one being warlike, one being peaceful. It shows a distinct change. Maybe not in character, but at least in personality or attitude. It shows that he changes his mind about things. However, it is a contradiction when you add a third verse.
"God is not human, that he should lie,
not a human being, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act?
Does he promise and not fulfill?"
