I can't argue about whether you have a doctorate in Islamic History, however only based on what you wrote can i assume that there's a question of what you actually know of it.

bottom line, regarding your statement, "The "BUT, O Messanger, she is ONLY six", whether Abu Badr actially said it or not, does not matter"

this of course is absurdly untrue...it DOES matter - you are citing a conversation that you cannot prove took place - a conversation that is not recorded in any reliable sources...you cited this conversation, apparently word for word, yet you can't recall what text it is from(???)

such circumstances beg a question of veracity...

yes, it DOES matter, to someone who believes in Islam who witnesses such sad examples of bashing/falsehood - and it could certainly matter to islamophobes who use such to further continued further misconceptions...it would be nice to see someone as highly educated as yourself resist such things that belie said level...
