The Church of the Giant Sky-Pixie

Odd little credal statement that Drayton Parslow  found yesterday in an old drawer in Bogwulf Chapel. He passed it on "in case you might want to use it". It's hard to tell, but I think he was trying to be funny.

The Creed of the Giant Sky-Pixie

We believe in the Giant Sky-Pixie
Who made the heavens and earth
And then stood back a bit
Only getting involved now and then
to tweak stuff that wasn't going quite right.
Randomly interfering with the laws of nature
like a bloke with a screwdriver - or possibly a hammer - poking around in a washing machine
But actually wandering around a slightly bigger version of time-space himself
with no real awareness of the illogicality of this.

Creating him in our own image
or, at least, projecting our worst fears and greatest hopes onto him;
we occasionally worry that sending things into space may hurt him.
But then, remembering that he's a magic Giant Sky-Pixie, we figure he's probably pretty good at ducking.

As the Church of the Giant Sky-Pixie, we rejoice that the Pixie loves us more than all the people who don't believe in the Giant Sky-Pixie. Atheists, Buddhists, Agnostics, and all those of other faiths. (Except some atheists, who we suspect secretly do want to believe in him).

And we look forward to the day when the Giant Sky-Pixie will come to the earth, and stomp over all the evil people in his Giant Sky-Pixie Boots.
Especially the Reformed Church of the Great Sky-Pixie. Heretics. The Giant Sky-Pixie hates them.
