Refutation by Demonstration of Circular Argument

How do we know that there were 600k witnesses to the Revelation in the first place (or any of the details, for that matter)? From the records in Torah, the authenticity of which is precisely what we are trying to prove. This a circular argument, for it assumes its own conclusions.

If you claim that we know that there were 600k there via tradition, then why don't we know the other details via tradition, such as where Mt Sinai is, or the names of (y)our ancestors who were present, and presumably transmitted their testimony throughout the generations. Fact of the matter is that the only details we know about the Revelation are those that are recorded in the Torah, making the integrity of our tradition on this issue very suspect, and leading to the logical conclusion that our only source is the Torah itself.
