By theism I do not mean "man in the sky," though that definition would be inlcuded within the use of the term as I'm using it. By theism I mean belief in a deity that is present and actively intervening in the universe (answering prayers, intervening in human affairs, doling out tragedies, guiding evolution, helping athletes score touchdowns, etc.). The universe appears indifferent to me, and evolution unguided and not point toward anything in particular.

Then by your definition I am not a theist.

And that sounds like "man in the sky" to me...that kind of God behaves as a man in the sky would behave, even if he's not one.
