Alright sure. Semantics. It's implied humans will die if they stay on earth. ...

No it's not semantics. It's the Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy. It's not the 'B' arc but arc 42.

That's the answer . . . .!

Set your new planet up as a private club, then you can test however and for whatever you want.  Ask a question that everyone will fail, but then make exceptions if you like the person.  It’s your club.

I recommend getting started on this project as soon as possible. But, you'll have to do it here.  :)  Civil systems are designed to crash and burn at some future time. This may seem a bit stupid ---but the ongoing flaw in civilization is--People. That means , in order to have a civilization it has to be flawed because there's nothing else to build it on but the flaws that ruin it. Sorry about that, but.
The only thing possible the world needs saving from are the ones running it.
Oh lord, save us from those wanting to save us.

Just asking. Why is it that we want to go some where else. I would like to go somewhere else. Why do you want to go somewhere else.?

I Have to re do--- In the past I wanted to go somewhere else and now I don't.

There's mention (I think) of screening for a religious virus in an Alastair Reynolds novel.
I'm not sure if was a literal or figurative virus.

Anyway, it's for you to say yay or nay.
Things aren't going too good on Earth so we're selling what we have, building an ark and moving to an undisclosed adequate planet.

Do you screen out the religious applicants?

I don't know.  I think I would let Quakers and Buddhists on, but I would put the religious thru extra rigorous screenings for violent tendencies.  That's such a minefield with them.

I'm not giving Quakers a second chance.
Buddhists are fucked in head as the rest.
