You seem to define "creation" as excluding evolutionary mechanisms. If
you define words in this way of course there is conflict -- but it is a
conflict generated by the assumptions underlying the definitions. On
what theological basis is evolution excluded as God's chosen mechanism
for creating the Earth biological diversity?

Divinely guided evolutionary processes are completely consistent with
evolutionary science. How could science ever exclude such divine
guidance and superintendence of natural processes?
