Yeah but ......

The OP is kind of a twisted OP. It looks at the historicists (e.g. Ehrman etc) who have made the claim that mythicism is a form of [holocaust] denialism. AFAIK in order to entertain a theory of holocaust denialism one must posit a conspiracy which denigrates all the modern evidence for the holocaust. [The analogue is that these historicists view the mythicists as denigrating all the ancient evidence for Jesus]

It follows that such historicists believe that mythicism is some variant of a conspiracy theory. Doesn't it?
