((Ah, but in the movies we don't hear what they're thinking, they could be sending themselves the complete works of shakespeare and we wouldn't know. They never specifically say they can only send emotions. Plus they could reply using a simple yes/no system, with positive emotions and negative emotions, or send signals of distrust if they shouldn't trust her, and signals of trust if they should, etc. There are a lot of loopholes.))

Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.
