Yes. However, your reference to Scriptural Christianity is the issue, not Darwinism. Decendence from a common ancestor is perfectly compatible with Christianity. However, this is not true if one holds to the literal inerrancy of the Bible.

... help me here...

You see evolution as compatible with Christianity, but not if you believe what the Bible says?

I've always thought that the Bible was the basis of Christianity.

Is there another basis I missed in my thought process?

thanks,

I can't see how an even non-literal reading of Genesis 1-3 (and Jesus' reinforcement of that account) can support your thesis that Darwinistic evolution and Christianity are compatible. Consider, for example, the term "kind" used in Genesis. Explicitly incompatible with Darwin's theory.

Believe (even loosely) the Bible. Or believe Darwin. You really can't believe both.
