Black hole complementarity and omnipresence

  1. Jan 15, 2012 #1
    As I understand black hole complementarity, two observers (one beyond the event horizon ,one within it) experience different realities. There is no contradiction because no one can observe both scenarios at once, you can't be inside and outside the event horizon, hence no contradiction.
    But some people believe there is such a thing as an omnipotent being. Such a being is by definition everywhere. But that would put this being both inside and outside the event horizon hence realising a contradiction. Agree or disagree?
