In traditional theism, God is often said to be both omniscient and timeless. Prior’s insight on the impossibility for a timeless entity to know the truth of temporal propositions has given rise to an interesting debate concerning the consistency of instantiating these attributes. In the present paper we intend to clarify the current debate by proposing different logical frameworks which allow us to adequately characterize the main intuitions on this issue and by showing that the possibility of an atemporal omniscient agent strongly depends on the metaphysical assumptions we are willing to adopt.
