### I wonder what is the degree of confidence you have in the
existence of this local-universe Programmer..... Is your evidence
strong enough to support a >99% probability estimate in favor of ve's
existence? A strong hunch ( i.e. probability >50%)? A mere suspicion
(probability <50% but >5%)?

I proclaimed myself a polytheist or even a maxitheist on this list
some years ago, in the sense that as a modal realist I have to accept
the likely existence of lots of gods, or even all of them, but mostly
very, very far away, so in practical terms I am a (local-universe)
