Bible vs Theory of Evolution

Quoting after http://www.religioustolerance.org/com_geev.htm: Comparison of 1st creation story with the Theory of Evolution:

There are many discrepancies between the first creation story (derived from the Bible) and evolutionary theory (derived from astronomical observations, the fossil records, radiometric dating of rocks, etc.):

Item According to Genesis According to Evolution Theory
Source Genesis 1:1 to 2:3 Paleontologists, Biologists, Astronomers, Geologists, etc.
Sun Created after the world Present before world coalesces
Grass, land plants, trees Created before the sun Evolved after the sun
First forms of life Land plants Marine organisms
Birds Created before land animals Evolved from land animals
Fruit Trees Created before fish Evolved after fish
Initial diet of animals Restricted to plants Animals evolved as meat, plant eaters, and omnivores.
Age of the universe Less than 10,000 years About 14 billion years
Age of the Earth Less than 10,000 years About 4.5 billion years
Age of earliest life forms Less than 10,000 years About 3.5 billion years
Where humans came from From Adam who was created by God(s). Genesis 1:27 does not explain the method. Genesis 2:7 explains that Adam was made from dust, the ground, or soil (translations differ). Evolved; higher apes and Homo Sapiens share a common ancestor. Actually, any two species of life have a common ancestor, even humans and cabbages, or dogs and sharks.

So...NO. Theory of Evolution is NOT described in the Bible, it is not compatible, not compliant...you get the message...
