Those are reasonable points.    (02)

But my only comment is that unless we're trying to develop an ontology
about religious beliefs, we don't need to worry about those issues.    (03)

If anybody asks us where God fits into an ontology, we can just answer
very briefly in the same way as Einstein or Spinoza -- just identify
God with the logos (the laws of nature) or with omniscience (which
would include all the laws along with everything else).    (04)

That is a simple way to avoid getting dragged into endless discussions.    (05)
