The exhaustively researched question of evolution has been worked on by thousands of scientists before, during and after the publication of The Origin of Species. The literal mountains of evidence in the fossil record, our genetics, and in the morphology of living creatures all points to evolution as the likely theory of how we came to look the way we do.
But evolution doesn't necessarily have anything to do with religion. God could have snapped his celestial fingers and make every tiny iota of evidence pop into existence in a microsecond, or God could have sped up time at a divine pace... since time was a very relative thing when there are no living creatures to experience it. Many deeply religious people are not bothered at all by the idea of evolution.
People who have a problem are those who want to make a literal interpretation of old middle eastern texts, and believe that these collected works are true in every word, and that Noah collected every living species in a wooden boat. The Christian Bible isn't proof of anything, except as a mirror to your own beliefs. Be content with that, and leave science to those who have more open minds.
