There is significant precedent for this situation. As a student in divinity school, Stalin (or whatever his real name was then) read Darwin and thereafter lost his faith.

But that has to be a statement more about Stalin than anything else IMO.

Stalin may have lost his faith because he read Darwin, but then he supported Lysenko, whose view of evolution was quite different and illogical.
