No mocking, please

From a blog-post comment:

im not sure whether u believe in god or not i think u deliberatelly mislead us please answer without mocking me please

In general, I don’t mock people who aren’t essentially begging to be mocked. To answer your question, I do not believe in God — not even a little bit.

I’d love to hear why you think I might be deliberately misleading my readers. In the past, I have been accused of being a “closet theist” because I do not flat out say that deities and other supernatural things are, on the face of it, impossible. However, even without being a strict determinist (in the sense of a person who will not consider anything but determinism as a possibility), I have come to a reasoned conclusion that the probability of supernatural things existing is so low as to be indistinguishable from zero. Therefore I feel justified in saying that they do not exist.
