μὰ Δία: certainly, i.e. “I do not believe in an overruling intelligence.” μὰ Δία, instead of οὐ μὰ Δία, may be used when a neg. precedes (as here ἄλλοθι οὐδαμοῦ οὐδὲν εἶναι), or follows, or is implied in the context.

οὐδὲ γάρ: why, neither. γάρ, in an answer, generally refers to an assertion implied in the question or statement preceding, or readily supplied from the connection, as here οὐχ ὁρᾶς τοὺς κυρίους: οὐδὲ γὰρ κτλ. Cf. i.3.10, ii. 1. 2.

κατά γε τοῦτο: according to this reasoning, at least. For the position of γέ, see H. 1037, 1 a. Cf. ἤκουσεν οὐδεὶς ἔν γε τῷ φανερῷ An. i.3.21
