"City of God" XV.8-9

Chapter 8-9:
Augustine discusses the long lifespans of the antediluvians and their accomplishments in building cities and generally establishing civilization. This is possible, he argues, because 1) their lifespan was longer and 2) their size was greater. We know this because we can see their bones around to this day. Any pagans who want to take issue with that had best disbelieve Homer and Virgil too, since they likewise argue that men were once much larger in size.
