Only if you fail to understand what evolution is or are employing a dishonest humpty-dumpty definition.

Put it this way. In Genesis, takes a rib from Adam and clothes it with flesh to make Eve.

Where did the flesh come from? Did Eve have one less rib after this?

Actually don't even bother answering because it doesn't matter one way or the other. We know the biblical fable is wrong. Homo sapiens share common descent with probably all other life that currently exists on Earth and we know this beyond all rational doubt.

Except that the Genesis account is a work of theology, not palaeontology. It tries to explain man's relationship to God and to the universe. It conveys deeper truth rather than reports facts like science does.
