"And a final reason teachers skipped (and still skip) that last 
chapter and do not put everything in an evolutionary context is that
themselves are uncertain about the principles of evolution (as I like to

say, it's not rocket science -- it's harder!!;"

It is?

"evolution is a difficult 
concept to understand at a level that allows one to teach it


"having had a deficient scientific education, which they blithely pass
It is certainly possible to love nature and deny evolution."

And it's also possible to love nature and accept evolution.
