We can learn a lot about the history of life on earth by what is revealed in the fossil record ... and what we learn is, the Genesis account of creation is not a literal description of what happened.
A Christian does not have to reject what science reveals - that God created simple organisms in the beginning, then created more complex organisms are time went on.
Regarding the creation of Adam, please consider this possibility: God took the DNA (described as "dust/clay" in Genesis 2:7) of a pre-existing creature (a Homo sapien without a soul) and from it created Adam, after which God placed Adam in the Garden of Eden. separated from the rest of creation.
This may have happened about 10,000 years ago, because that is about the time history records great advances in civilization and inventions ... plus, the "cradle of civilization" is located very close to where Genesis 2 says the Garden of Eden was located.
