Why not? Why is it so hard to believe that something just *is* and doesn't have some wizard behind the curtain making it happen?
I don't claim to know all the answers, but if, as this article claims, belief in God is not incompatible with science, why are so many so vehement in their dismissal of evolution, despite a plethora of evidence? If you believe God is pulling the strings, then how is it so inconceivable that he instigated evolution? It makes far more sense than the story of Adam and Eve - which I believe is merely a metaphor or a means of simplifying things for the uneducated and superstitious masses of those earlier times.
