I got shocked and upset an islam friend when I found out about al-Qiyamah and I would be required to believe it.

I said I can not, and he explained I had no choice it was the faith. I offended him very badly when I told him I could never believe that.

What I could never believe was that a god who was kind and merciful, would have humans essentially live through hardships and die to prove themselves good or bad, kill everyone on the planet and then send some to heaven and some to hell. We would not condon torture of an animal in that way and I refuse to believe a god would act less humane than us.

He has never spoken to me since.

I learnt from that experience it is wise to learn what religions expect you to believe before getting involved.
I believe in "Evil, Bad, Ungodly fantasy science and maths", so I am undoubtedly wrong to you.
