"If the Augustinian account is correct..."

... then, mortality is cause by original sin, and Jesus made up for that sin, so NOW we should all be immortal (again).

If the Augustinian account was just made up by him as an interpretation (which is precisely what the evidence indicates), then it is all meaningless fiction.

The truth is as obvious as it is mundane. "Surprisingly, perhaps, the Bible suggests otherwise."

No, that's not surprising at all... the Bible suggests many things, precious few of them are true, though. Obviously.
