Take the kalam cosmological argument.
If the universe has a cause, then the cause must be timeless, spaceless, and immaterial. These are just concepts that are though to be "beyond" our universe. However, if our "universe" is actually a simulation, and we are simply conscious computer pixels, then many of the theistic arguments for God, I think, with enough ingenuity, could be reworked to actually defend the idea of a virtual simulation!
This is all speculation of course. I think it will become more pronounced as time goes on.
