Same with Catholicism.

I think the short answer is that people who take the Bible (or any religious text) literally find comfort in the certainty. Concrete, black or white thinking avoids the anxiety of doubt.
Didn't Pope John Paul II come out in favor of evolution? I'm not sure what Francis says about it, but I've always thought that they should go both hand in hand. It's all a matter of interpretation.
I was taught evolution by priests in high school. That was in the early 80's.

It wasn't even given much discussion. It was matter-of-fact.

There is no contradiction between evolution and Catholic faith.
My kids are currently in Catholic school, and yes, they are teaching evolution as it is known in the scientific community.

Has the Big Bang Theory been proven?
Not conclusively, but beyond reasonable doubt.
Just wanted to point out that the Big Bang Theory was initially proposed by a Catholic priest.
