It's pretty much co incidence that my scientific education, training and experience reinforces my incredulity about the biblical god.
My wife is a psychologist like you. Her training (largely humanistic) hasn't in any way impinged on her belief in the biblical God. Then there are believers who've a training in science that would, in all likelyhood, far exceed anything you yourself have undergone. They find that their understanding of science makes them appreciate the nature of God all the more.
It would seem that science is a flexible tool when placed in the hands of an otherwise established worldview.
