This conversation about whether God's omniscience extends to distinguishing each individual particle in the universe has taken place before--a long time ago. Part of the famous exchange between Leibniz and Newton's protégé Samuel Clarke took up this very issue in an older form: was God able to distinguish all parts of space? I've suggested at times in the past that ASA members would get much from reading that correspondence, which is available in a modern edition and might also be available on the web; this is just a further reason to suggest it.
