    Is it possible for the to be a universal clock that someone outside of the universe could time events with, and view the different ways that time travels in the universe?

    There is nobody "outside the universe", so the answer is no.

    Well I mean if there were. There's nobody near a black hole, but we could still imagine if there were somebody how time would flow relative to something else. If God is outside the universe, is it possible for there to be a universal clock?

    This question assumes a false premise, and therefore doesn't have an answer.

    It is against the forum rules to mix religion and science. Thread closed.
