We are a bit like the third-person narrator of a novel.... He's the one who decides what will happen and the one who does the telling, but he can't be challenged or interrogated. Unlike a first-person narrator, he has no name and he's not a character, therefore we believe and trust him; we don't know why he knows what he knows and why he omits what he omits and keeps silent about what he keeps silent about and why it is that he can determine the fate of all his creatures, without once been called into question. It's clear that he both exists and doesn't exist, or that he exists but, at the same time, cannot be found. He's even undetectable. I'm speaking about the narrator, mind, not the author who is stuck at home and is not responsible for anything his narrator says; even he can't explain why the narrator knows as much as he does. In other words, the omniscient third-person narrator is an accepted convention, and the average reader of novels doesn't usually stop to ask why that writer takes the floor and doesn't relinquish it for hundreds of pages, droning on in that invisible man's voice, that autonomous, external voice that comes from nowhere.
