A question that I really like of you to answer it please .
How could someone who dont know how to wright & read know about scientific facts ?
How did he know about something that will happen in the futre like Islam will continually rise and be one of the world's largest religions ?
Or that the dead body of Pharaoh would one day be discovered .
(Holy Quran Yunus, 10.92 )
"Today We shall preserve your body that you may be a sign to those after you: although most men give no heed to Our signs" .
We believe that knowledge of the future is only with God Almighty ,However, God may favor whomever He pleases with some part of this knowledge .
As for me I would say that there must be a God & Muhammad must be his Messenger because1400 years ago no one knows about these kind of things .
Big Bang :
(Holy Quran 21:30)
"Do the unbelievers not realize that the heaven and the earth used to be one solid mass before we exploded them into existence?.."

Earth is geo-spherical (different eggs vary in roundness):
(Holy Quran 79:30 )
"He made the earth egg-shaped".

Sweet water and salt water cannot be mixed:
(Holy Quran 25:53 )
"It is He who has let free the two seas of flowing water: One palatable and sweet, and the other salty and bitter; yet has He made a barrier between them, and a partition that is forbidden to be passed."
I dont want it to be a long post so ...

I'd be interested to know how he knew whether or not that being speaking to him was an angel from God, or a demon from Satan? What was his proof that he wasn't being deceived?

Sorry .. but if you can not distinguish between the knowledge of something Holy and the knowledge of the devil , If you does not understand the simple basis of good and evil ... the proper basis of right and wrong ... then it will be very hard to convince you about anything .

Maybe Muham learned about science from his parents but they never taught him to read and write.

Maybe he gained some scientific insights based on his own observations of the world around him. I have heard he was a pretty intelligent dide.

You have to have at least basis on which to make a decision. Otherwise, you'll do nothing but decieve yourself into believing whatever you want to believe and claiming it came from God.

It's interesting that Muhammad accepted what we now know as the Old Testament as the revealed word of God (he even plagarized a good deal of it), but at the same time let that so-called angel convince him that the Scriptures were full of lies!

What's up with that?

It's completely possible to mix fresh water and salt water. It happens all the time, all over the world.
