The whole “man in the sky” concept is a ridiculous militant atheist slur designed to caricaturize believers as daft, simplistic, gullible folk who don’t think. The only people I’ve heard of in real life who conceptualize God this way are Mormons and some Jehovah’s Witnesses. I don’t think any other religion, denomination, spiritual system, culture etc conceptualizes God as a material resident of some portion of the universe. Everything I’ve read suggests most people, at the very least, conceptualize God in either idealist or pantheistic terms. God is wholly “other” or “the whole”. For most human beings. This “man in the sky” Santa Clause figure exists only in the imaginations of militant atheists. 🙂
