Is Evolution Mentioned in the Bible?

No, not specifically, but there is a passage that predicts the sort of society that evolutionism has spawned.
Rom 1:20-32
20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities– his eternal power and divine nature– have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools
23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.
25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator– who is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.
27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
28 Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.
29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips,
30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents;
31 they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless.
32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
(NIV)

This is a clear warning of what will happen when people attempt to convince themeselves that we were not created by a Person, Who we will ultimately be responsible to. The truth is, we have been put here deliberately by a Loving Creator. Deep down inside each one of us knows this. It’s an awesome reality and for those who decide to ignore the fact, a scarey one.

Fear is a strong motivator and there are many ways people try to cope with fear.  We can either come to grips with the source of fear and learn how to understand and resolve it. Or, find a way to convince oneself and others that the fear is not real.

Darwin had an idea, living things can create themselves. Huxley had a fear, as a atheist and a scientist of sorts, design in nature kept haunting him. Darwin gave him a way out, so he thought. But, atheism is like a drug that releives the conscience of the pain of guilt and the sense of responsibility for one’s ignorance toward the Creator. Like drugs, though, the effect is temporary since the real issues never get resolved.

As created human beings, we must come to grips with the reality of our situation and learn how to accept it and look to our Creator for the way we ought to live and be a peace with Him. This is the only way we will ever be a peace with ourselves as well.
