You can't parody that with something that both theists and atheists agree exists, like a rabbit! It is the wrong type of entity.

I don't suppose Miranda wants discussion of her essentially humorous piece to get too serious, but as I read it she was proposing an entity which does not exist, but gave it the name 'The Rabbit' to point up the ridiculousness of the whole thing, and thereby to show she was making a parody of 'God' talk.
