God created the heavens and the earth. It's the first doctrine of Scripture. It's one of the first doctrines of the so-called Apostles' Creed. God's title of "Creator" is found in both Old and New Testaments. Adam is in Christ's line and Adam's very real sin is central to the need for Christ's incarnation. That Adam and Eve were created by God as God claims is a matter of believing what God says. I'm disturbed that people think this doctrine is open to compromise.
Very briefly, the typical objections:
1) People used to think that the world was flat and/or the center of the universe.
Neither the flatness of the earth nor its gravitational relationship to the Sun is specifically a doctrinal matter. Some folks tried to make it a doctrinal matter, but they were mistaken in doing so.
2) You're just employing "God of the gaps"
No, we're not. God observed the creation of the universe and has accurately and truthfully reported it to us. Our conclusion that God created the world is based on his eyewitness testimony.
3) You're backward to accept Scripture over Science
The question of origins is an historical question, not a scientific question. We have the best possible historical source, the very word of God.
4) But you are ignoring Science!
Scientists who are employing philosophical naturalism always do and always will yield naturalistic conclusions. Expecting anything else is like hoping that the "X" key of your typewriter will occasionally provide an "O" on the paper. That's not how it works. If you press the "X" button, you get an "X".
Belief in special creation is a central tenet of the Christian faith.
Hebrews 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
There is not room for compromise on this subject, just as there is not room for compromise on the virgin birth (which purely naturalistic science does not accept) or the resurrection (same objection from philosophical naturalism).
