I'm a Christian, but I'm also a scientist with a career in biology (I worked on angiosperm reproduction, flowers, pollen, pollen tubes, ovules etc ).
As far as I'm concerned evolution happened and still happens, the evidence for it is overwhelming - there's SO much solid evidence it's silly that we still call it a theory. I have no doubt whatsoever that life got started from non-living chemistry 3.5 billion years ago or so, I have no doubt that it started in many other places in this amazing universe. One of the astounding things about the universe is that atoms have the right properties to combine and interact in a way that's capable of making life. Given the properties of the atoms of 90 or so elements, galaxies, stars, planets, and life are pretty much inevitable - now that IS awesome!
The Bible contains history, poetry, geography, politics, law and all sorts of other stuff. But that does NOT make it a history textbook or a poetry book or a geography textbook. So what IS the Bible then? It's a book that shows us that there is a creator clever enough to design atoms that lead to life (just for an example). It tells us that he loves us. It's purpose is to open our eyes and our hearts to understand how we relate to one another and how we relate to him.
The creation story described in Genesis is there to tell us that he exists, that he brought the universe into being, that he purposefully caused us to exist, that he loves us and intends for us to love him and to love one another. It is foolish to take the Bible to be history or geography or poetry. We recognise that it contains those things but they're not its primary purpose, they're cleverly used to gradually guide us towards the Truth - that he IS Truth, and Love, and Authority, and Wisdom, and Grace. That he is the Beginning and the End. That he is is not IN the universe for he caused it and transcends it.
I'm afraid that so-called 'creation science' is not science at all. People believe what they want to believe and have the right to do so, but the Bible is not a science textbook and was not intended for that purpose by the Author. It has a FAR higher purpose and a far higher value to anyone who understands it as it is intended.
