فَإِذَا سَوَّيۡتُهُ ۥ وَنَفَخۡتُ فِيهِ مِن رُّوحِى فَقَعُواْ لَهُ ۥ سَـٰجِدِينَ

"When I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him of My spirit, fall ye down in obeisance unto him." (72) 


My understanding is that the above defines creation in the religious sense and it can be consistent with scientific theories of evolution because it would technically be possible for Neanderthals and perhaps even homo sapiens to exist and not have God's spirit. But Adam (عليه السلام) would be the first homo sapiens with that spirit.

71. And when your Rabb said to the angels, “Indeed, I will create a human 
being from clay (water plus minerals).”
72. So when I have proportioned him (formed his brain) and breathed into 
him (manifested through him; the word ‘breath’ which is ‘nafh’ in Arabic literally 
means to blow out, I.e. to project explicitly, to manifest, to materialize) of My 
spirit (My Names) prostrate to him (accept his sovereignty and administration).
