I think the universe is a bit over 13 billion years old and that life evolved. I also believe in God. Never struck me as a problem.

The “problem” is that while you can believe in God in general, evolution and 13 billion years are in conflict with the Biblical account. They can’t both be true. For example, if you believe that Jesus is who the Bible says He is, then it makes sense to believe that Joseph was who the Bible says he was, and his father, and his father, all the way back to Adam. The Bible gives the Genealogy of Jesus Christ and links Jesus Christ to “Adam, the son of God”. If you believe the Biblical account of Jesus, you need to believe the Biblical account of Adam. If you don’t believe the Biblical account of Adam, then you really don’t believe the Biblical account of Jesus.
