Therefore, the theory of history which relies upon the Eusebian Fiction postulate must necessarily require there to be no historical trace of christianity before 312 CE, when Constantine took Rome, or if there appears to be evidence, it must seek an alternative but reasonable explanation of that evidence.
Evidence such as reference to the literature of Josephus, Pliny, Tacitus and other earlier often quoted citations is excluded on the basis that this alternative theory of history uses the Eusebian Fiction Postulate; that the references to "the tribe of christians" was interploated into these early writers in the time of Constantine, or later.
The following list of exceptions have been raised against the postulate and the theory, and I have responded to these perceived exceptions as appropriate. I wish to thank all people concerned with these discussions, and for their contribution to the clarification of these issues of history.
In addition to the listed exceptions below I have conducted reviews of the following:
