A couple of weeks ago I wrote about how the world and mankind was evolved into our present state. When I posted it I used a pseudonym so my real name didn't show up. Anyway, I hope that this will clarify things for you and that you will be able to tell this to your friends who believe that the world and humans was created in 7 days.
In the Aganna Sutra, the Buddha describes the universe being destroyed and then re-evolving into its present form over a period of millions of years. The first life formed on the surface of the water and again, over millions of years, evolved from simple into complex organisms. All these processes are without beginning or end, and are set in motion by natural causes
