To start the rematch, I will state definite facts which I stand with concerning the flood. Fact 1 I prefer to use the King James Version for my sources; however, if other transitions don't twist the scriptures, they can be used.

Genesis 1-2 (0) Adam became the father of Seth at 130. Genesis 5:3 (0...

I therefore invite the opposition to define libertarianism in the first round. Please be try to be thorough and perhaps link to relevant libertarian thinkers so we don't have to alter or expand the definition after the debate starts....
