For Sinnott-Armstrong, “to say that God is eternal is to say that He exists outside of time” (p.98). He understands this eternality in terms of the concept of numbers. The numeral “3”cannot be said of having its existence in North America but not in Antarctica, or in one hour ago but in the days of dinosaurs. The existence of numbers is independent of all times and places, and it cannot change in any way. Sinnott-Armstrong’s point of the analogy is to say that God’s eternality, as that of numbers, sets a restriction for God from acting in time. He cannot “have created the world, to cause miracles, to answer prayers, to be incarnated, and so on” (p.99).
