There can be a connection.
When scientists study the record of life on the planet, life clearly was here first as very simple lifeforms and developed over a long time to more complex forms - better adapted species survived - individuals who survived and mated had a chance to pass their genes along.
Now its not hard to see how that scientific evidence could be misused. That doesn’t make the science bad - it makes the misuse of the science bad.
Even the Bible can be distorted.

Agreed. A tyrant might use nerve gas to kill innocent people. However that does not imply a moral link between the tyrant and chemistry.
That's exactly what many of us creationists keep saying but when we state that we're accused of being anti-science, knuckle dragging, talibani-type, neanderthals who want to drag the world back to the dark ages.
The Bible is probably the most often distorted writing on the planet.
