Let's go back a few steps.
1. Science has never PROVEN the earth is billions of years old.
There is alot of evidence to support that it is NOT. However, because of natural disasters and the like, the fossil record is little more than a hypothesis. Scientist may say that most of the midwest was once an ocean, or that all the continants used to be one big continant (pangea). Bible believers say these oceanic fossils are from the great flood. Also, several excavations have found man's footprints congruent with dinosaur remains. The "earth is old" theory puts these two species several million years apart. These are just a few examples. But there is PLENTY of real evidence to suggest the earth is only a dozen or so thousand years old.
2. No examples of even micro evolution have ever been recorded under scientific study. Mutations occur all the time, but never has any mutation been found to HELP the species survive, or make the species any less prone to predators.
3. Darwin himself, while on the islands writing Origin of Species, admited the theory had major wholes in it. Many species have systems of survival so complex, that it would be impossible for the system to evolve piece by piece. Some animals produce toxins that would kill the animal, unless it had every working part already in place.

As for myself, I am a christian. I don't however beleive that God smacked his hands together and all was done. To God, a thousand years is like a day and a day is like a thousand ears. 6 days can be a very long time. I believe we were created, but because we are creatures made of carbon, and water, I choose to beleive that when god spoke, he created us through some natural means. I don't believe we are advanced enough to begin to grasp what those means are, but I am fairly certain that it was not evolution. Origin of Species and theories of the like seem EXTREMELY far fetched and I believe are impossible.

Sorry for the long post.
