In the Bible, there is no statement that says that when God created animals and people, he did not evolve them. There is also no proof that God couldn't have used Evolution as his tool. Because of this, I believe that God could have created a few basic people, and then let evolution take it's course. Or, possibly, that "One day" Was longer than we believe it to be.

Why would God use evolution as a tool. Surely he would just create them and let them go and do there own thing. Even if he did it, how would he know that they would turn into something in "His Image"?

Actually many Old Earth Creationists are Evolutionary Scientists and Engineers, so they work with and Theorize Evolution but personally believe in Old Earth Creationism at the same time.
There is no conflict there.

But, you cannot teach Old Earth Creationism in science classes, because Magic is never scientific.

Old Earth Creationism? Really have no problem with that concept, it is essentially Deistic.

Though it may have been about Young Earth Creationism.

That would be a fun coexistence, David Attenborough documentaries interspersed with episodes of The Flinstones taken as factual documentaries.

Yes it does, all you have to do is put the creation starting first to last. and you will see its a basic part of evolution. I bet your a bible thumper and when you seen me say the bible also has a evolution sequence you quickly deny it. but that is ok it just shows me that you don't understand your own bible. or even care to read it. and im not even a religious guy.

The Bible does NOT recognize Evolution.

You do know that for this to work you have to prove of a "god". It could if religion wouldn't always deny it. Just to let you know buddy the bible does reconigize evolution. but many religion fanatics dismisses it.
