Actually, memorization and oral recitation was well practiced by many groups of people, until they were able to write down what their grandparents had taught them through word of mouth. So, Moses being able to recount what he had heard and his ancestors had heard from the mouths of their forefathers is not in itself abnormal or impossible.
Just because one went to a Catholic school or one's family belongs to a certain religious group does not mean that person respects others' beliefs. Sadly, there are many Christians, both Catholic and Protestant, who do not respect what other people, including Jewish people who do not believe Jesus is the Messiah, believe.
This is one of the greatest tragedies in human history, the lack of respect between people who say they believe in God.
If it insults you that I think you do not respect other's beliefs, I apologize. However, respect can be seen through the words one uses, unless there are misunderstandings. If you do indeed truly respect Jewish people who believe in G-d
and that the Tanakh is true, as well as people who believe in God and in Jesus, as well as those who believe in God
and Muhammad, as well a those who believe in gods in different forms, I apologize. I did not see it in the words you chose. Sad to say, in both Catholic and Protestant congregations, i have also not seen much respect by many for the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Peace and God bless you
