Correct me if this has been covered here already.

Evolution has absolutely nothing to do with how life, or even the universe got "started". That is mainly an unknown right now. What evolution is about is how life got to be like it is now through gradual change and adaptation.

The reason why I bring this up is because of the recent discussions on CNN's TalkBack Live and Crossfire and their misleading description of Evolution as being about the origin of life and the universe.

Biological evolution, that is Darwin & dinosaurs, have NOTHING to do with abiogenesis or cosmogenesis.

The ToE does not describe, nor attempt to describe, how life came about.

The state of science education in the USA is sad. There are just too many misconceptions about what evolution actually is.
