Source Of Belief

Why would a Muslim believe Mohammed flew to heaven on a winged horse? Because someone, probably a parent, told him the Qur’an was the work of a god, even though it has no hallmarks of divine authorship. It contains nothing only a god would have known. It contains many falsehoods where a god would surely known better. Why would he believe it then? Peer pressure. Muslims threaten with death those that question the Qur’an. Further, he might swallow the contention that the Arabic poetry of the Qur’an is supernaturally good. In English translation, it is tedious. I cannot speak for the Arabic version.
