I go to school for bio, so I'm passionate about this. But I also have enough religion classes for a minor in RS. Unlike many people I think God and evolution can easily co exist. Fossil records cannot be ignored, neither can genetic similarities and things like co-evolution.
Also, we are humans, so we put a human perspective on God. We assume that everything is created with purpose. Not everything has to have a rhyme or a reason in my opinion.
