Part of our evolution into humans meant that we were given the gift of imagination. When a fellow human would die for instance, we could imagine that he was going somewhere else. This was not necessarily a trait that helped our survival, but rather a side-affect of our superior intelligence. As we developed more, we began to imagine why the wind blows, and why there are storms, and why the sun rises and falls. In that way, religion was definitely part of our evolution.

How can someone believe in both evolution and religion?

I see absolutely nothing contradictory about evolution and religion. We may think we see such a contradiction, but that's only because our little human brains can never begin to fathom the depths of God's infinite wisdom. God has a panoramic view of the universe, so that things which seem illogical or contradictory to us may not appear so to Him. To me, evolution is simply part of the mysteriousness of God's ways.

Does evolution coincide with religion and if so how and if not why?

To get very technical, you can say believing in evolution is a religion. Religion is a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs. Some Christians believe that God cause the big bang and evolution to happen. But if Christians believed strictly in the Bible, then no, evolution does not coincide with it as far as I can see. It all depends on the religion and the person.
