There's a thorough takedown of this article specifically at https://www.reddit.com/r/AskHistorians/comments/5hk1ap/is_this_rationalwiki_article_on_the_historicity/.

The article acknowledges that most historians disagree with the article, but then it dismisses this as an argument from authority, as if historians are the wrong people to consult in the matter of history.
Speaking of — this article doesn't acknowledge that there are places that the scientific method shouldn't be used. For example: history, where it's impossible to design and carry out experiments.
