Does evolution fit into the LDS Church gospel?

According to professors at LDS Church-owned Brigham Young University, evolution does fit into the gospel. While this is a contentious issue for some, you can read more about the Church's official stance on evolution over at the FAIR LDS website.

When I was a student at BYU, a Church-owned university, I was taught about evolution by pro-evolution professors who took science very seriously. These professors did not tolerate the simplistic anti-evolution arguments that some students brought with them, but they were generally patient and gave out tons of web resources where people could research the topic for themselves.
