Thank you so much for this detailed response! Why did this lead to people being more tolerant of other religions, even if they themselves were more secular? Wouldn't they still believe that if their religion was true then other religions by default must be false?

The Catholic Church continued to promote Catholocism as the only correct religion, and of course, some people did remain just as devout as before the Scientific Revolution. However, others retained aspects of Catholic practice while taking a more relaxed approach to religion. These people might believe other religions were false but they were less likely to see them as a threat. This led to less conflict over different religious beliefs. I hope this helps! :)
