Evolution or the Fall

I heard a message on Sunday about how the reason the world is in such a bad state is because of the prevalence of evolutionary thinking and how it has misplaced God and creation centred thinking. Funny I always thought the standard Christian reason for the world being in a mess was actualy due to the Fall, and the depravity of the human condition. In which case one would expect the world to be in a mess, but with the hope of redemption through the life, witness and death of Christ and the renewal of the human conditon that comes through the Christ event and the works of the Spirit.

The irony being, of course, that many of those Christians that engage with evolutionary models of the world spend a lot of time connecting themes of creation, Christology and eschatology. More so, in many cases, than Christians who claim a "creationist" position, but who are ultimately Deist in their outlook.
