12:04 pm - Cicero, you're soooo kewl!
Augustine + Cicero = OMG!!! BFF!!!! SQUEEEEEE!!!!

"Can I braid your hair?"


Next, what does Varro mean when he says that there are three kinds of theology: that is, of accounts given of the gods? Of these, he calls one mythical, another physical, and the third civil. If Latin usage permitted, we should call the kind which he placed first 'fabular'; but let us call it 'fabulous', for the word 'mythical' is derived from "mythos", which means 'fable' in Greek.

- Augustine of Hippo, City of God VI.5

I knew that there was such a thing as fabulous theology! Teheologeee iz teh FABU!

I have a pet theory that Augustine was an athiest

That's a cute theory. I'd seriously consider reading his Confessions before you take that one out of the pet store...

"On Christian Doctrine" was quite enough, thanks. There are many flavors of asshattery and he's not mine. But maybe one of these days.
