[After being introduced to the concept of Harvey, the Magic Rabbit in comparison to concept of God]
Quite a different thing, and it's easy to see why.
God, as the creator of the universe, the alpha and the omega, is self-cointained and self-explanatory. He is the source of everything and thus nothing he does is impossible.
A magical rabbit isn't. Where does he get those magic powers? What is the source of magic? What is rabbit doing there anyway?

an extract from "The Majic Rabbit, by Harvey"
And lo, before the beginning of all things I was. Being bored for an eternity of no-time I created a universe in which bunnies could hop and play and eat carrots and lettuces. I looked upon it and saw it was ok. I am the A and the z and everything in between. Look on my works and be amazed. You may feed me and stroke my fur.
That about covers it.

"Where does he get those magic powers?"
He wished for them, then when he got them he used them to retrospectively grant his wish.
"What is the source of magic?"
He has a magical celery stick that grants his every wish. He made the celery using his magic powers.
"What is rabbit doing there anyway?"
The rabbit has always been. Nothing else has always been but the rabbit, so the rabbit must have existed before the universe. Everything must have a cause (except the rabbit), so the universe must have a cause. As there was nothing before the universe but the rabbit, the rabbit is the only possible cause for the universe.
Bare assertion, circular logic and special pleading can be used to defend any position, to explain any god. That is why they actually defend and explain none.
