If God created the universe that would be a fact about physics that would
be very interesting to know, and I see no reason in principle we couldn't
detect it; and if He was constantly tinkering with His creation as many
think then He would be even easier to detect. But we see nothing.

That makes no sense. The word "nonfiction" is useful but it only describes
something in contrast to "fiction".
