Certainly, since existence is actual and is studyable scientifically. But it would depend on what is meant by a deity. Someone's personal vision (of a man on a cloud) may be erroneous. But in terms of energy/matter it's certainly viable.

In any case, science has probably answered it already since it's claimed that energy can't be created or destroyed. That's another word for eternal.

If we ask for the source of all energy (and call that God) then it's a question of whether modern science is capable of perceiving and identifying such a source. It may not be, which doesn't mean there isn't one.
