|I think every and all sanctimonious ignoramus fanatics such as FL should take a look at Augustin's work, just for the sake of it...|
I have, actually. Augustine wrote that the earth was less than 6000 years old, he believed that God created everything instantly, (yes, literally), and he believed that the global Noahic Flood was literally true.
A very good YEC, to be sure!
It was Bishop James Ussher who, in 1650, came up with the idea that the world was 6000 years old.
Can you provide a source of St Augustine saying that the world was 6000 years old?
Unfortunately for FL, by FL's stated standards Augustine was not a "good YEC" at all. Since Augustine didn't believe exactly the same thing FL does (because Augustine said the world was created instantly, not in 6 days like the Bible says), Augustine wasn't a Christian at all.
