    I wouldn't convert at all.

    £1000 is nothing.

    Honestly, I'd rather die than convert to Islam, or any religion for that matter. I live only to study the quantum world because therein lie the answers and/or means of finding the answers to every question ever asked.

    As a scientist and as someone who has had the honour of witnessing the unfathomable beauty of the quantum world, it would be an absolute disgrace if I were to abandon the principles of objectivity and empiricism for even a moment. Once you've caught a mere glimpse of the quantum world, nothing else matters to you anymore. It's like an all-consuming urge to learn more which can't be sated by anything. No amount of money or fame is enough to distract me from my goal of aquiring more knowledge.

    Religion is a hindrance to progress and to the aquisition of knowledge and as such, it's unworthy of my time and attention. Frankly, it's worthy of noone's time and attention. People deserve better than to be hosts to parasitic ideologies, but if it makes you feel happy then I guess that's something.

    Oh, and for those who're thinking, "but Peroxidation you're a Buddhist, you damn hypocrite," strictly speaking Buddhism isn't a religion. You don't need to believe in all that rebirth tosh to be a Buddhist, a Buddhist is simply a person who takes refuge in the triple gem.
    Art/science would be infinitely more worth studying if there was a Creator behind. There is nothing about randomness that would come close to unfathomable beauty, and I guess it feels better to praise a Creator than His Creation/the universe. If everything came from nothing, then knowledge itself would be limited and one day it would get dull.

    As a Muslim, do I get cash by default?
    Yes and I've already put the money in your account (fully backdated)!

    As an ex-muslim am I eligible for this?
    Of course sir.
