    The answer is yes, but you need to know why for yourself so I suggest you look it up.

    Most Christians, including the roman catholic church and most orthodox faiths have accepted the earth is several billion years old, accept plate tectonics, basic evolutionary theory, etc. they just believe humans are a special animal that has been touched by gods divine spark (eg: humans have a soul, that doesn't evolve that's the work of god.) Pretty much the only people who contest that are the young earth creationists (intelligent design), they believe the earth is >10k years old and that science is entirely wrong about evolution, etc. Most Christians don't have views that conflict with evolution or rather, their CHURCHES don't have views that conflict with evolution and they've never really thought about it. The exception is your fundamentalists and evangelicals for the most part, although I'm sure even in those groups there are some who don't buy the YEC "theories" (and I use that word very very loosely.)
