I do believe evolution and creation do not conflict with one another. I essesially believe we are two beings. One is our spirutal essence (Spirit) the other is our animal bodies. Our spirits helped to evolve the animals into what we are today. So , both theories are correct.

As Pagan Mom said, there isn't any clear cut one answer to that question. Because Pagan is such a broad term there are many creation myths - to many to name here.
As we evolved each culture had their own creation story, obviously the most widely known is the Israelite Creation Story which includes Adam & Eve. But you can find a list of other lesser known versions HERE.
Generally my path "teaches" Creator Guided Evolution, which states that while there are Creators (Gods, Goddesses & other Powers) ruling over the process it was, and is, evolution that has created all things we now see and know. Nature and Evolution have formed the world as we know it and are continuing to do so, with the ever present guidance of the Gods & other Universal powers.

Fortunately as a Pagan I am free define my religion as I see fit. So, my religion doesn't really "teach" evolution vs creation - it's just not that simple. I personally go with the science behind Evolution - it just makes more sense to me. I am still undecided as to if the Energies that are the Great Spirit, Gods and Goddesses "helped" with that process or not. There are many great creations myths, and maybe somewhere there is a bit of truth berried in each of them.

I generally accept the scientists and what they have discovered as to the possible origins of the Earth and Her people.
If I WERE to believe any "creation myth"...it'd be this one:
