A very important principle is that good people, who may have become that way partly through their religious exposure and effort, ought to be the ones who learn science.  The power of that knowledge is much better in the hands of the caring - than in the hands of the uncaring.  If anyone should understand the processes of nature - including natural selection and speciation by survival of the fittest, it is the good people.  Unfortunately, their religions teach them to reject without study.  This is a problem.  Religions sometimes care so much for their own definition of goodness, that they fearfully fail to find truth.
