No topic stirs up a fight quicker than evolution. Young earth creation science advocates (and some old earth creationists) have targeted evolution as an enemy to be crushed. Despite all the arguments against evolution, it marches on. In fact, if you do a quick web search, the arguments put forth by young earth theorists are countered by the evolutionists (see BioLogos.org, or TalkOrigins.org, for example).
There is no reason why evolution should not be a viable basis of belief. One can believe in evolution and be a born-again Christian. These believers are known as "Theistic Evolutionists."
Although theistic evolutionists vary in their positions, from conservative to liberal, there is no reason why a theistic evolutionist cannot be very conservative, believing in an inerrant Bible. At Old Earth Ministries, we always take the conservative position that the Word is inerrant and infallible. It is possible to be a fundamentalist and an evolutionist at the same time.

Did you know that you can be a Christian,
and believe that the earth is billions of years old? You can even
believe in evolution and be a Christian. There is no conflict
between science and the Bible...all one needs is a proper
understanding how to merge science and the Bible. To learn more
