Our dear GoD wrote this little gem

Bukhari collected 600,000 hadith and compiled 7000 or so to be trustworthy

Do you know what this means? It means that almost all the Ahadith that he came across or 593,000 ahadith of them were bogus and blatant lies and fabrications and this is the very reason why Muslims strated to use isnads in the second century of Islam but the problem is the isnads can also be bogus so Muslims had to come up with crazy idea that these characters quoted in the isnads should have a date of birth and date of death and place of residence but this also can be bogus and all made up now do you get it?

And indeed Goldziher proved that the Hadith literature is anachronistic and it represents Islam and in this case at the time of al-Bukhari and not in 7th century Mecca

Many Muslims now are saying that even al-Bukhari's ahadith are a real embarrassment at times

Muslim collected around 300,000 and compiled 7000 or so to be trustworthy

This means that he came across 293,000 ahadith which were bogus so why should we believe the 7000 that he collected? You tell me

in my collection I have a timeline of the hadith narratoes and collectors , their birth and their death, and it should unbroken link between them.

if most of al-Ahadith that they came across were bogus then one should not trust the isnads either because they can all be manufactured

They all narrated a Hadith several times each from a different source to make sure that the Hadith is authentic

Hello: isnads can also be manufactured right?

so who are you to judge the Hadith and the Holy Quran - nothing

Well your so called Allah says that if you have questions then اسألوا اهل الكتاب so do you disagree with your Allah? It is yuor sources that tell us about these disasters
