This has been coming for some time. I have decided to convert fully to Mahayana Buddhism. I think it needs to be more than just the hard atheist (Theravadin/Zen) version I have been discussing in recent posts. Most people need emotional support so some "belief in belief" is necessary. There is no need to move into support for the supernatural, just to accept that the physical world may be richer than we currently believe. The way to avoid the problem of compatibility is to consider that science explores a subset of that wider world. Providing we are sceptical about our beliefs, there can be little problem. This is the right time for such an announcement, I feel.
