Note that the Catholic Church makes no definitive statement regarding either the validity of Evolutionary Theory or the validity of Creationism, one way or the other. Atheism, however, does indeed make not only definitive but belligerent and unreasoned statements about both.
The never proven, strictly faith-based, yet belligerently insisted upon "science" of Darwinism insists that Speciation occurs when the "fittest" among a species population in an environment successfully reproduce among themselves but can no longer successfully interbreed with the parent species. They become, therefore, a new species.
Note the plurality. The fittest among a population. This means a group of organisms (in this case humans) became so disassociated with their parents that they could no longer successfully breed with other humans from the parent species. But they could reproduce with each other. Those (plural) that are the fittest mate more successfully and produce like offspring inheriting the "fittest" qualities.
But, this is disproved by the fact that the DNA points back to an Adam and an Eve. One and only one of each.
Early American Darwinists of the Democrat Party of Secession from the USA over the black slavery issue were convinced that black people were not human, but of another inferior species. Not true; the DNA of black people traces back to the exact same one and only Adam and Eve. We are all of the same species and the same ancient parentage. We are all related. And we can all interbreed successfully. Interbreeding is quite impossible between different species.
It appears to be the same situation with animals and plants bred by man. Animal husbandry and agricultural science have never produced any new species. Different breeds of cows are still cows; different types of wheat are still wheat; etc., etc., etc. No new successfully reproducing species that can no longer reproduce with its parent species has ever been bred by man.
No speciation event has ever been observed by man, either in living human history or in the ancient fossil record.
None of Darwin's observations in the Galapagos Islands or anywhere else involved any new species. All the unsual finches were still finches; all the marine iguanas were still iguanas; etc., etc., etc. The same with all of his given human-bred speciation examples; woollier breeds of sheep were all still sheep, different breeds of dogs were all still dogs, etc.
Which brings us to the homo question. Why was Eve a woman, and why was Adam a man? What was the natural purpose of their female and male genitalia? (Hint: You are here reading these words.)
How would we all be here if the "normal" and "natural" sexual activity of human beings involved one sex only, or the achievement of any form of perverse non-reproductive sexual gratification?
We wouldn't be here.
Not preaching; just some simple common sense things to think about.

I love this stuff. My youngest son is such a Darwin idolater that I have difficulty talking to him. Give me more of this, because he spouts a scientific mumbo-jumbo which I have a hard time disputing with any scientific facts. He is so arrogant in his "facts" that the discussions become fights.
In other words, I ain't no G. K. Chesterton.

You might point him to all of The Darwinism Pages, beginning with the Refuting Darwin's Origin of Species page. Despite universally taught formal education here and all over the world, none of Darwinism has ever been substantiated with any real scientific evidences.
Someone in the IDVolution website published a paper a while back showing how each of us human beings is a mutant. A mutation. And how all mutants have less genetic material than their parents, never more. Which points to becoming more simple, not more complex, over generations. And that, if correct, is in perfect alignment with the third law of thermodynamics, which says that things become more simple over time, not more complex.
Things break down.
Devolution, in other words, rather than Evolution.
Darwinism is little more than a very convenient, although fraudulent, foundational basis for the unprovable faith of atheism.

In your April 3, 2017 post on Adam and Eve you said: "Note that the Catholic Church makes no definitive statement regarding either the validity of Evolutionary Theory or the validity of Creationism, one way or the other."
However, Pope Leo XIII in his 1880 encyclical Arcanum (On Christian Marriage - paragraph five) said: "We record what is to all known, and cannot be doubted by any, that God, on the sixth day of creation, having made man from the slime of the earth, and having breathed into his face the breath of life, gave him a companion, whom He miraculously took from the side of Adam when he was locked in sleep."
That sounds definitive to me.

The term Creationsim refers to the current day Science of Creationism, not to Genesis. Creationism seeks to gather empirical evidences with which to scientifically prove Genesis, something I believe is beyond the ability of man to do. It is Creation Science, not Genesis, that the Church makes no definitive statement on.
It would appear from Scripture that man arrived on the scene with spoken language. However, it may have been quite some time before man had written language, and the ability to record history, rather than to repeatedly recite it from memory to keep it alive and pass it on from generation to generation.
Quite some bit of time must have past after Creation before the sacred authors even attempted to write it all down. By that time, the two competing stories were Genesis 1 and Genesis 2, which were given equal weight by the inspired authors, and therefore both were included in Genesis.
The Church has made general definitive statements regarding the conclusions drawn from research into material beginnings, without getting into scientific specifics.
From Vatican I, on Faith and Reason:
And on God the Creator:
This was less to specifically anathematize either Evolution or Creationism than to anathematize
These are erroneous conclusions that may be drawn from straying too far from Revealed Truth. Revealed Truth sets the limits for right reason, to keep man from going off into nonsense, or even into evil.

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

The Darwinism Pages
Natural Evolution of Species theory remains untested and even unobserved today, with no physical evidence supporting it, and must therefore be recognized as little more than an ideology, a silly superstition or a false religion.
Attacking Catholic Darwinism, from the purely Catholic perspective. This site has always challenged Darwinism from the purely scientific perspective. Now, we see another Catholic champion of Truth attacking Catholic Darwinism from Revealed Truth.
Mitochondrial Eve & Y-Chromosomal Adam v Darwinism and the "Natural" Homo. If all human DNA traces back to Mitochondrial Eve and Y-Chromosomal Adam, then the religion of Darwinism and the "Naturalness" of the homosexual condition are both refuted.
Did the breakdown and loss of the Scientific-Method begin with Darwinism? In the Evolutionary Trail of Modern Scientism, Marxism points back to Freudianism, and farther back to Darwinism. Was that where Modern Man initially took Science off the rails?
Refuting Darwin and Dawinian “science” as bunk and silliness. Refuting Darwin is almost too easy due to his rush-to-publish and his complete lack of empirical evidences.
Refuting the Origin Of Species pseudo-scientific theory of Darwinism. If Darwinism’s Origin Of Species is a true Scientific Theory then there must be a preponderance of evidences supporting it. Show us any of it.
The definition of Darwinism in a nutshell. In the definition of Darwinism we find the foundational principles upon which the quest for the atheist holy grail: the purely material origin of life itself.
Darwinism: Darwin, Evolution, and the Devolution of the Scientific Method. Scientistic Materialism's cornerstone: Darwinism and the competing sub-theories of Gradualism and Punctuated Equilibrium.
Radiocarbon dating as an aging method is accurate up to a point. Radiocarbon dating is reliable up to 6,000 years, shaky at best up to 40,000 years, and completely useless beyond 70,000 years.
Silly premises built on crumbling foundations: Global Villageism & Evolutionism. The Dem Global-Villagers insist the US Constitution was written to cover all citizens of Earth; Disciples of Scientism and Evolutionism all genuflect before their high priest, Richard Dawkins.
Faith versus Atheism: Is atheism really just a silly superstition? The Faith versus Atheism argument is at the root of every other important argument.
On Evil and Nonsense: Look closely at Nonsense, and find Evil at its root. Evil and Nonsense: deny evil and you deny right vs. wrong; which is to deny common sense, which is to invoke nonsense.
Genetic Entropy: Pointing to Human Devolution, not Evolution. Genetic Entropy shows that mutants have less genetic material for variation, never more, falsifying evolution via "favorable" mutation.
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
