There's a lot of really poor historical work done on the internet.
Most reliable historians (and by that, I do not mean just "Christian
historians," but historians in general) seem to date the Athanasian
Creed as written long after Athaniasius's death. It also appears to
have been a Latin creed, not Greek, even though Athanasius is one of
the Greek Fathers.
More over Constantine, though initially Trinitarian, switched camps
to the Arians within years of Nicea. Thus began a major struggle in
which the powers that be supported the heterodox position, while many
of the bishops and priests maintained Nicene orthodoxy for almost 100
years as rogues. Things were finally solidified in 381 at the Second
Ecumenical Council (Constantinople).
