The original definition was also that a deist god controls the universe in some way.
Mathematically quantum mechanics cannot be described in terms of definite results. It is impossible to get from A to B, and the early universe was entirely quantum. So a deist god cannot control the outcome which contradicts the original definition.
You could of course say that a deist god purposely made a universe which he, she or it could not control, but when you say that the whole story sounds ridiculous. Especially when there is a natural explanation which produces the same result.
I have used some analogy to explain this in theory but I could not see how to avoid it. This is the most difficult science there is to explain. If you want to see explanations of actual examples of nature acting this way I suggest the online videos of the Feynman lectures in New Zealand about reflected light.
So the conclusion is that the original definition of a deist god does not work. If you want to step back further to simply a creator god. This god becomes either a bungler or unnecessary. Would you even define a bungling god as a god or just a powerful being, maybe one with some scientific tools to help.
