We would not have to debate evolution much if we'd all admit our own ignorance of events in the past.
We are not told in scriptures when the earth was created, because scriptures don't tell us when the heavens and the earth was made. Scriptures only allude to events that took place before God put light on Earth. Before that, we are not given the history. Fossils, bones, etc, etc, can be on earth from before day one of scriptures.
Because of that, I have no problem rectifying in my mind the truthfulness of scriptures. It is because I am ignorant to the details of what happened before "God said, let there be light." I do know, however, what transpired from that point on.
