So Mahgraye wrote this
................On the other hand, I would name: Crone, Cook, Calder, Rippin, Hawting, Shoemaker, Dye, Segovia, de Prémare, Robinson, Powers, Reynolds, Melchert, to name a few. They all are leading scholars in the field
and yeezevee quipped on those scholars
Well they are all shifting sands and trying to make the sand dorms which will fall again., THEY DO NOT TOUCH THE SUBJECT OF AUTHENTICITY OF MUHAMMAD & AUTHENTICITY OF HADITH.............
And Mahgraye says
I mean no disrespect dear Yeezevee, but your comment strongly implies that you have not read anyone I named, or anyone in this filed for that matter
................ but please do some reading, because your claim is just inaccurate. .......
Indeed Mahgraye is right in pointing out that I HAVE NOT READ WHAT THOSE SCHOLARS WROTE COMPLETELY and I must read all of their contributions ... It does take enormous time to sieve through the scholarly religious literature ...anyway I will try again I remove Crone,
from that list ..
