Can it be reconciled with the message of the Bible? There are Christians, like Darwin, that have accepted Christianity as well as evolution into their belief system. This varies upon person to person, but some only believe in microevolution and vice versa. I do no think that just because you accept one, that that does not mean that you have to reject the other. There are also some people that believe that God was the catalyst to evolution, causing it.
