Wingnuts to the contrary, many, many devout Christians accept the theory of evolution as advanced by Darwin. We don't see any conflict between a spiritual explanation and a scientific one for creation.

Remember the old riddle, What's greater than God, meaner than the devil and will kill you if you eat it? The answer is Nothing. And that's the way we see it. God isn't bound by physical laws, He made and supports them at His will. When my son asked if carbon dating was fallacious since some religionists insist the world was created 6,000 years ago, The Sage replied that he didn't know if it was 6,000 or 6,000,000 years ago, and he didn't see a problem with that. "Do you think God couldn't make a day that lasted a milion years if He wanted to?" he posed, "or manipulate carbon levels, either?" His point was, when God says something, we accept it. When science proves something else, we accept that too. They aren't mutually exclusive.

This article in AlterNet agrees that "it's okay for Christians to believe in Darwin."
