No, what you have demonstrated is that you have been seriously mislead, what you believe simply isn't true.Argument from authority, as well as a false dichotomy.
I've already demonstrated that theories of evolution have been around since the ancient Greeks and Hindus, with many alternative evolutionary theories existing independently of Darwin (such as evolution forming the basis of Common law theories of civilization); and not in mutual exclusivity to god or creation.
Not to mention, if history is any indicator, all of the theories considered science today may be considered the "magic" or "alchemy" several 100 years from now, so there's no reason to "believe" in them today, or any day, other than for a need to place faith in something... anything...
No one, in practice, believes evolution is about "survival" anyway - if it was there wouldn't be any scientists, given that cave dwellers had no problems with mating and procreation, often taking several wives - science itself would merely detract from time which could be better spent having sex and popping out babies.
