Allow me to explain things clearly. Evolution is a fact, no longer a theory. The origin of particular species and the tree of changes to get there are derived and not as certain. They are not so 100% certain, but their explanations fit the sciences we know today. Our knowledge of genetics and GMOs and selective crossbreeding and geographic isolation of species makes the processes of change truth. Evolutionists propose origins as theories with science behind them.
Now, to resolve the conflict of religion and science Pope Francis hit the nail on the head best.
He proposes that God created life with adaptability in genetics. He believes that Christians stuck on scripture interpretation and rejecting evolution make those people seem ignorant and are not good for peaceful coexistence. He has a progressive goal to have Christians follow the core principles of Jesus and stop warlike practices and hypocrisy. You can choose what you like about theories without fighting factual information.
The origin of species is a back driven timeline to beginnings. We may not be that far from taking organic non-living materials and creating a living one. That would be a shock to creation by deity, but it has not occurred yet.
It would show a science based origin that is re-creatable. Until then, it is a fair position to accept evolution and state that God is at its origin and find peace with that. But, to reject evolution is taking an antiquated position and rejecting knowledge and science and just trying to be annoying.
