OK, lets start with the basics. Energy conservation law requires that in order to rule in such a vast Universe (not only on Earth), he should direct large quantity of energy back and force from himself to galaxies, galaxy clusters, and entire Universe. Any energy= mass= gravity, thus we would notice His action by at least gravitational signature. As we do not, as well as there is no ANY OTHER traces of his activity around at all, then we have 2 choices: 1) His influence is negligible. 2) He does not exist.

As we see rather far around (15 billion years) as well as rather far back in time as we look at distant galaxies, we see no His signature anywhere and anywhen.

Another basic law of nature He has to "turn off" before to attempt to rule the Universe in real time is slow speed of light. Light (and gravity) is so slow that does not allow God to make ANY impact even within one galaxy in reasonably prompt manner (would take many tens of millenia to change anything in our Milky Way alone, not to say about the MUCH bigger rest of Universe where Milky Way is just tiny grain of dust).

As we do not see that light speed has been even slightly altered neither in our neighboorhood, nor far around and neither now, nor as far back as we can see (as seen from numerous spectra of distant H, He, Ca, Fe or just from very distant CBR alone), then again we have 2 choises: 1) His AllMighty effect is negligible, 2)Allmighty does not exist (nor he did in the visible time back).
