In response to #4: No one is saying that the literal words of Genesis match up with scientific theory. And while they don't align when taken literally, they're not really in competition, either--I no more "believe" in evolution than I "believe" that the earth revolves around the sun. I can appreciate the values and beauty inherent in an origin story for humanity that celebrates a divine origin and holy human gifts and explains the faults and pains born by us all. That doesn't mean I have to believe that, for example, the first woman was literally created from the surgically removed rib of a particular man.
While in the past, various churches denounced Copernicus and Galileo as blasphemers and dismissed heliocentric models as false at best and evil at worst, I like to think that we've progressed past that. Instead, many people of faith who accept evolution as one of the basic tenets of biology believe that in the same way that Jesus taught people about metaphysical concepts like God's mercy and judgment through parables and analogies to things they could understand, Genesis uses metaphor, myth, and parable to teach a greater truth in non-literal terms.
You might want to check out Inherit the Wind--a fantastic book and a brilliant movie that shows the so-called Scopes Monkey Trial, where two profoundly intelligent and articulate Christian men argue about teaching evolution in schools. It's a complex issue, because it's so tied up with politics and religion, and the book and film treat it with dignity.
