But Muhammad kept much of the plunder for himself and also he took many wives (from various ages).

Yes, but for what reasons? His first wife, Khadija (RA), even though 15 years older than him, she wanted to marry him because of his honesty and trade.

And most of his other wives, he only married them because they became widows after Jihad, he felt sorry for them,he didn't really plunder or steal them. He also adopted sons who had their fathers killed in Jihad, he didnt really steal and plunder them.

Even if Muhammad was fair, that doesn't make him the biblical Prophet.

Okay, even if he was not the Biblical prophet, he still could have been a prophet, maybe a prophet that The Bible did not mention, i mean, he never lied, even before prophethood and Islam, even though he was a Prophet, and the Jews and Polytheists were against him, he was asked to make decisions because even the non-muslims knew he knew best, but he never took it to be him who knew best, he always said "Knowledge of it remains with my Allah alone" He never took credit for saying the truth, he always made the impression that he never said the truth for himself, but for the fear of Allah.

Okay, he lived in the desert, how did he know how the movement of the sea or the ocean was, how did he know about snow, how did he seem to know about earthquakes being frequent near The Day of Judgement, (i.e modern day we see this) How did he know that Divorces will be common in modern days now, which is true, in Australia here, 48% marriages always end up in divorce now.

Yes I've heard from some faithful Christians that Satan knew science so he must've tol Muhammed (s), BUT, Satan is a jinn, and the Quran challenges Man AND Jinn to match anything like that of the Quran, so Satan could never have made verses that are in the Quran, or how some Christians say that Satan put his role in the Quran so people can feel sorry for him being kicked out of Heaven, but in the Quran it clearly states what he will try to do to humanity. So Muhammed (s) certainly did not get such science from Satan, but somewhere else that even he says "Knowledge of it rests with my Allah alone".

How could Muhammed (s) know what the size of a fetus was, when you have to zoom with a microscope 33X to see it clearly.

I do not understand that when a cousin of Muhammed (s) read Surah Maryam in the Quran (Chapter Mary) to Negus, or Najashi of Abyssinia, that Negus and his followers cried until their beards were wet and said certainly these are the words of god but did not accept Islam until decades later.

I'm sorry I have an essay to complete, but Thank You for your time Brother.

May Allah help you. Thank You
