Because the Bible clearly states that death came because of Adam (Rom 
5:12 and I Cor 15:21-22)  Walt Brown makes this statement:

"If evolution happened, then death was widespread before man evolved. 
 But if death preceeded man and was not a result of Adam's sin, then 
sin is a fiction.  If sin is a fictiion, then we have no need of a 
Savior."  - Walt Brown (PhD, MIT)  "In the Beginning", p200.

He gives 73 points of contention between 'facts' in Theistic 
evolution and statements in the Bible.  Very interesting.
