    Is Deism where you believe in a superpower but don't think he/she/it does anything for us?

    Yes thats basically it.It believes in the notion of a God but it thinks that the God who created the universe doesn't actively participate so it refutes the idea of like miracles being a thing.

    Hm, I don't know, maybe I'm unintentionally a believer/follower?

    I don't believe in a specific religion. I believe in a superpower.
    I don't have any assumptions on whether they're good or bad.
    Ergo, I accept the possibility that there's a malicious superpower.

    I also accept the possibility that they may not be the only one.
    I don't believe they've intervened with our lives,

    And lastly,
    I just don't care who or what they are, whether they're good or bad, whether they're powerful or useless.

    Is that still Deistic?
