How to become a revisionist historian in two easy steps:
 
1. Take one universally accepted, well researched and documented historical phenomenon, go to the pub, and after a couple of drinks come up with a theory that claims the exact opposite to everyone else's view. Spend a couple of hours googling and dig out some other poor soul's claims that, with some fanciful interpretation, might support your claims, the more fantastic, the better. (Amateurish attempts on etymology and slightly racist undertones are optional at this stage.) Find some internet forum to post your claims.
 
2. Denounce all evidence that might contradict your new theory as either erroneous or as deliberately falsified, preferably by some sinister global conspiracy. Portray yourself as victim of such conspiracy, especially when you're just about to be banned from said forum. Move on to the next forum.

I can believe that. The Ptolemaic dynasty was at one point writing down and storing practically everything and anything in the library. Including shipping reports.

Shipping records of the Ptolemies would have been invaluable to historians nowadays. Nothing that old is without value.

To be fair, he was asking for a Biblical reference saying Adam and Eve were Semites, not Jesus was a Jew.

Which is even funnier when you think about it, since if they were then I suppose we all are.
