I've never heard the wave-partice duality of nature used as an argument against the existence of an omniscient being; but it seems to me to be a great way of proving at least a fundamental contradiction of the idea that any "all-knowing, all-seeing" beings exist.

From Wikipedia:

"Wave–particle duality postulates that all particles exhibit both wave and particle properties. A central concept of quantum mechanics, this duality addresses the inability of classical concepts like "particle" and "wave" to fully describe the behavior of quantum-scale objects. Standard interpretations of quantum mechanics explain this paradox as a fundamental property of the Universe, while alternative interpretations explain the duality as an emergent, second-order consequence of various limitations of the observer. This treatment focuses on explaining the behavior from the perspective of the widely used Copenhagen interpretation, in which wave–particle duality is one aspect of the concept of complementarity, that a phenomenon can be viewed in one way or in another, but not both simultaneously."

The "complementarity" aspect of wave-particle duality is what--in my mind at least--destroys the idea that anyone--or thing--"sees all". In other words, if any being could "know all" and "see all", then Wave-Particle duality wouldn't exist!
