No, it is postulating a theory. Once a theory is set out for all to read,
then it is up to the rest of us to disprove the theory by testing it
against known evidences. That does not yet make it a fact, as future
evidence can always refute a theory. Without theories, we would not
advance in science or knowledge. The danger comes when we convince
ourselves that a theory is a fact, when in fact, it isn't.

It seems to me that an honest scholar would just stick to writing things
can authenticate using the documentary record, or at least the 
archaeological record.  In the absence of such records the author isn't 
just engaging in unfounded supposition, he is engaged in irresponsible 
guessing and wild speculation.  That is, he is just making up the 
story.  Such a book is fiction, not nonfiction.
