God's the Guy Who Ignores You

In the sci-fi drama The Island, the character Lincoln, played by Ewan McGegor has never seen the world outside of the lab facility he lives in. At one point he asks a friend who makes passing reference to God, "What's God?"

The friend replies "Well, you know when you want something really bad, and you close your eyes and wish for it? God's the guy who ignores you."

How do you define God? How do you experience God?

a. Impossible to define God. His name is 'I am what I am'. Take that, philosophers!
b. Experience him by doing what he says. Especially what he says in and through Jesus.

a.I define God as "a fairy tale for people too weak and/or stupid to deal with the fact that they have to make their own fortunes.
b.Nobody experiences him, and anyone who says otherwise is lying, crazy or at best deluded.

God is like a football refree during a game, you will not notice him until you need his judgement or get pissed at him when he judges or punishes you for something you have done.
