Hello to you too!
I’m not sure what I wish I had read while in school because even back then I was reading papers here and there in my own time for fun. My advice would be to begin, if you haven’t already, to read articles that you have access to from your school’s online databases like Academic Search Complete and JSTOR. The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy can never hurt either.
For professional outlets, I’m aware of a few that obviously combine the two: philosophy of cognitive science, philosophy of psychology, cognitive neuroscience, philosophy of mind/consciousness. These are mostly academic options, and there are certainly other fields you can go into, but they’re the ones that come to mind.
Not long ago I was sleeping in a cabin in the woods and was awoken in the middle of the night by the sounds of a struggle between two animals. Cries of terror and extreme agony rent the night, intermingled with the sounds of jaws snapping bones and flesh being torn from limbs. One animal was being savagely attacked, killed and then devoured by another.
A clearer case of a horrible event in nature, a natural evil, has never been presented to me. It seemed to me self-evident that the natural law that animals must savagely kill and devour each other in order to survive was an evil natural law and that the obtaining of this law was sufficient evidence that God did not exist. If I held a certain epistemological theory about “basic beliefs”, I might conclude from this experience that my intuition that there is no God co-existing with this horror was a “basic belief” and thus that I am epistemically entitled to be an atheist without needing to justify this intuition."
