comment How is knowledge of G-d different from any other knowledge?
Thanks, those links were helpful. A main theme seems to be - you have to realize that G-d is not like anything you know/can think of. In other words, the true knowledge or model of G-d in your mind is supposed to be the single thought "G-d is not any of the abstract ideas, thoughts, logical constructions, etc. that I have in my mind". So the more you learn, the more you can say that G-d is not. But the problem then is that if this is the true knowledge you are supposed to have of G-d, what status does any other knowledge (like "G-d is merciful", etc.) supposed to have?

But even non-deterministic models have properties you can know about them (it is a model of some sort after all). For example, quantum mechanics is a non-deterministic model of the world, yet even though we can't predict individual outcomes we can predict probabilities, expected values, etc.
