Antique Historians Dismissed
* Josephus' quotes are dismissed as mere forgeries (including the one with John the Baptist!) merely because "scholars and Christian apologists alike" have regarded them as such, though we are given no names of such scholars, only two other Christ-mythers, two 19th-century writers, and a writer from the 18th century--much less are any critical evaluations of arguments offered.
* Pliny is dismissed with the 19th-century lie that “Pliny's letters are forgeries”, a position held by no reputable scholar of Greco-Roman history today.
* Tacitus is also dismissed as a forgery, based on the work of yet another scholar of the 19th century whose work has long been dismissed by Tacitean and Greco-Roman scholars.
