The "poop" aspect is a bit distracting in that other question, so I want to get to the issue I was bringing up in it:
Can a being be "all knowing" without experiencing things directly? For example - we can see a dog get a shot. We can watch a slew of medical monitoring devices hooked up to the dog while it gets a shot, and we can listen to the noises the dog makes while it gets the shot. But can we truly know what the dog feels when it's getting the shot?
If a deity has not experienced something, how can it know what it feels like? If it is all knowing, how can it know the feeling of learning something new? It already knows it all, there is no way it can experience new knowledge.
But then there's the paradox - if something is incapable of knowing something, it cannot be all knowing.
