Well done you for engaging on a second doctorate.
I got my doctorate at Oxford in physics and had a career in physics and in meteorology. Archaeology had been a longstanding interest so I returned to Oxford for undergraduate and MSc studies. I am currently wondering whether to go for another doctorate, but only hesitating because of the effect that it would have on family commitments.
Me too, longtime atheist. Welcome to Atheist Nexus----the world of reasoning, rational sense, and good friends.
