How is it possible that God knows the future?


By willing it to exist.

In the example I gave you, at your request, I offered no figurative speech – simply, as you requested, an example that wasn’t an anthropomorphic, figurative description of God.

You can try to spin it any way you wish… but “God created the universe” is not an anthropomorphism. :wink:


How did God create the universe?

This is both a figure of speech and an anthropomorphism. The two are not mutually exclusive.


Is there an echo in here…?

This was not the example I gave when you asked for examples. It was a different reply. I’m not saying that anthropomorphisms don’t exist; rather, I refuted your claim that non-anthropomorphisms don’t exist. Since it was a successful counter-example, I think we’re done with that assertion. Next?
