I am not sure why Muslims point this out, since it is really not a good argument to support the religion. In fact, if anything it is one that should be used against Islam. Why would god want to pass down his word to an illiterate man who has to depend on other people to write down these revelations? Why didn’t god just pick someone who could read and write? Why Muhammad? Why wait until he’s 40 years old? Why an illiterate man who would go up and hallucinate on a mountain to feel god? If you ask me it just sounds like a made up story about a delirious, power-hungry, uneducated 40 year old man who successfully tricked people to follow him to lead massive military campaigns on other tribes and nations. Think about it, in reality it makes no sense, unless you are strongly brainwashed by Islam, in which case you have to try and find ways to defend it.
