There is actually a word for what you describe as your belief. It's called Deism. We discussed it in a college philosophy class as being the belief of God (or whichever higher power) as a clock maker. S/He set up all the mechanics, wound it up, and then went on to more important matters rather than necessarily micromanage every event.
