I am torn on this issue. The overwhelming fear of evolution as a threat to someone's christianity can make them not want to learn a letter about evolution. I have taken this route with people myself, saying evolution is no threat...you can believe in god and still see that maybe evolution is his mechanism for creating the diversity we see in the world. I have had at least one of these acquaintances go on to study up on evolution and as he began to understand it, he admitted that god had no place in it. A chink in the old armour. However, it is intellectually cowardly to do this, I know.

In other words, I don't have an answer!
