Evolution and the Big Bang

I know that the two are completely different theories relating to completely different issues, explaining complex life vs explaining some of the mysteries of our universe.  In a few posts I have mentioned the two in conjuction and been rebuffed by those who rightly say the two have nothing to do with each other, but does anyone believe in one and not the other?  Like I said in at least one post, I think it is hard to believe that the universe was created in the big bang, but that god came along one day and put humans and animals on of of the planets, or to believe that all complex life is the result of the process of evolution but the earth was set in motion around the sun by the hand of god.  Does anyone believe in one of these theories but not the other?
