I know I'm not dreaming because my conscious mind constantly gains more knowledge.

You could just be dreaming that your conscious mind constantly gains more knowledge.

That would be an odd dream.

I've heard somewhere (maybe Inception?) you know you're dreaming when you don't know how you get there.

How far does skepticism go? Let's assume you're twelve and you live another hundred years, is that enough doubt to care about a billion years of history?

There is no limit to skepticism;but there is a challenge that it requires proof backed by natural evidence here and there; through which reality can sort your skepticism out scientifically(through non contradictions) and conventionally(through Occam's razor)! Only that in modern paradigm(say the ubiquitous paradigm); the fundamental tenets of the philosophy of science became scientificall self evident through consistent and complete mathematical logic- such that our curiosity and inquisitivity are justified naturally or pragmatically but not dogmatically

It doesn't matter where it comes from but isn't: "you know you're dreaming when you don't know how you get there. " a pretty good way of saying you're dreaming or not?

Some of us can barely remember what we had for lunch (we had lunch?), where we parked the car or even if we came by car. So not that good a test. And in some dreams, you know exactly how you got there (on the back of that flying lizard called Dave).
