Religious descriptions of creation are just that, religion. Religion is not science and when the two mix the results are not pleasant, just look at the AGW hoax. That being said, there are numerous problems with evolution. There is no practical way to prove this theory.
As it is today the main purpose of evolutionary theory is to disprove the existence of an higher intelligence or something beyond our comprehension. Which is neither provable or improvable with our current understanding of science.
Other than an application in terms of genetics or eugenics, I see no use for pursuing the idea of evolution.
