Once you propose a deity, you are automatically beyond the laws of
science.  If a deity is a material being that obeys all the laws of
physics, then it is not supernatural.  It is simply another
manifestation of the natural.  

1.  Consciousness may be produced by "brain".  That does not mean that
it could not be produced by something else.

2. A deity must have powers, but we cannot assume they conform to our
materialistic notions of consciousness.  A deity may have knowledge
and awareness due to some spiritual or other-worldly or whatever
reason.  

3.  This is extreme silliness. You were told that, yet you persist.
