Welcome to Atheist Nexus and its friendly people. Do join groups and get to know the whole site.
Terry Meaden (academic, Oxford, scientist, 60+ )---
founder in Sept. 2008 of the busy Atheist Nexus discussion group
"ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Humankind, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." where there are lots of good discussion topics and over 100 video films on science, evolution and cosmology etc. including ten recent lectures from Stanford University on evolution and Darwin.
Your deep experience in practical and academic psychology should usefully help our discussions along.
