Some say Muhammad was the first Muslim terrorist. Many of the known terrorists threatening peaceful parts of the world are Muslim. How does one debate these facts?

Not only that, but they often commit their terrorism in the name of Islam.

Muslims can sometimes be victims of non-Muslims too. Many of the Uighurs of China or the Rohingya of Burma are oppressed by a non-Muslim government.

The difference is that I can prove to you that when I die, my body and brain stop functioning. Over time, I will decompose and breakdown. I am dead when I die.

Can you offer a shred of evidence, other than hope, speculation, conjecture, hearsay, legends, etc., to show that anything else happens? You cannot.

I think that when someone is trying to make an argument about the existence of an omnipotent spirit who created the universe in seven days, and sent his son to earth to be executed to absolve the human race from "original" sin, that they would be rather circumspect about using the phrase "juvenile analogy."

The irony is, the unicorn analogy usual just goes straight over their heads, even when people who believe such things see the silliness of it all..

The “invisible pink unicorn” is used as examples of unfalsifiable claims. Science can't prove that unfalsifiable claims are not true – by definition.
But this isn't a reason to believe in them, any more than it is a reason to believe in the infinite number of potential claims that can't be falsified.

Yes, but those who do not believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster will forever be denied the wondrous caress of His noodles.

The irony is that those using that stupid non-comparable analogy are the ones who are ignoring the very aspects of our experienced reality that incontrovertibly requires an intelligent SOURCE. It goes right over their heads. The problem is in equating intelligent with "smart" or "wise" or "perfect" or . . . whatever human nonsense makes their non-comparable comparatives seem relevant. The very "intelligibility" of the universe (as Einstein noted) is the most inexplicable feature using the artificial "naturalism" or "empiricist" reductionist rationales. The ability of unfalsifiable claims to account for it is the dividing line between pink unicorns , fairies, Santas, etc. because they need an established real feature of the universe to be applicable as a proof of concept. My God consciousness has the ubiquity of our own consciousnesses as the proof of concept . . . making all your other puerile nonsense inapplicable, period.
