Well evolution doesn't explain the origin of life on earth, there are various competing models of abiogenesis that do that. Evolution by natural selection explains the changes and current diversity in life. However I don't think that's what this add finds objectionable in that statement.
Here's Byrne's official response:
"I have never wavered in my belief that this world and everything in it is a masterpiece created by the hands of God... I fought to ensure the teaching of creationism in our school text books."
Definitely not a "book-learnin liberal" anyway.

Smokin' cigarettes, eatin' Mickey D's 2 meals out of 3 a day, barely getting by with C's and D's in our already pathetic education system and lovin' that beautiful bearded man watchin' us from up in the clouds...
God Bless Americuh.
WHO WANTS DESSERT
Don't forget dismissing everyone who disagrees with them as cartoonish stereotypes so they can safely dismiss anything that challenges their worldview.
They have hillbilly music and a barn as the background while saying people shouldn't vote for a politician because he supports teaching evolution and not taking every word of the Bible literally. It is impossible to unfairly stereotype these people further.

Tags need to be fixed. That's a guitar, not a banjo.
By the way, I checked the website of the PAC that made this. They're dead serious.

"Can you believe this guy voted for taxes?!?" Well fucking GOOD.
He at least understands the concept that you have to take in money to spend money. Tell me how he voted for pork projects and against sensible spending cuts if you want to be taken seriously.
Taxes are bad, m'kay?
Spending that doesn't directly help me is bad, m'kay?
WHERE'S MY FUCKING SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK!?! WHY AREN'T THERE MORE COPS TO ARREST THE MEXICANS AND BLACKS?!?!

They felt the Alabama audience is unable to identify the animal mascots without the text.
Best comment here.

And yet this will work.

Look, Alabama, if you're not going to use the Federal aid we give you to educate your children, why don't you just give the money back?

oh shit read him backpedal
In a response, Byrne said the ad was filled with "despicable lies" - and insisted he is no opponent of creationism.
"As a Christian and as a public servant, I have never wavered in my belief that this world and everything in it is a masterpiece created by the hands of God," he said. "As a member of the Alabama Board of Education, the record clearly shows that I fought to ensure the teaching of creationism in our school text books. Those who attack me have distorted, twisted and misrepresented my comments and are spewing utter lies to the people of this state."
He also said that, contrary to the ad's claims, he believes "every single word" of the Bible is true.
k, fuck both of them...fuck the whole state.

This really makes me want all the people in Alabama to get horribly attacked by animals who go berserk. If for any other reason, for them to blame God.
