For one, it did discover creation: The Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago. We have evidence of a supernatural process (I'm not sold on the multiverse) - a universe from nothing. And God packed everything in that unmearsureable speck of mass and energy and time - what is more miraculous than that!
Two, the fossil record could have discovered that all biological entities showed up suddenly 6,000 years ago, but didn't. Or we could have discovered that the age of earth and universe is 6,000 years old, but that's not what we find.
It's honestly sad that Jesus has done so much for us and has so much to offer those who turn to him, but so many of us, because of mistaken ways of viewing the bible, spend so much time trying to find ways to not accept the obvious - that the biblical creation accounts had a spiritual purpose for an ancient audience that were not attempting to correlate to modern science. (That was for free! )
