And theology.

 From the Psalms we know God's understanding is infinite.  From the 
Bible we know He has calculated and has supplied adders.  (OK, those 
are serpents, but adders is adders.)  And He has said often that he 
will greatly multiply.  One such place is in Genesis 22 after Abraham 
and Isaac went up the mountain to perform a sacrifice.

Still concerned about memory?

Well, earlier in the same chapter we see God supplied the RAM.
