Elephant, Manatees and Hyrax are all evolved from a single ancestor. If you watch them closely then you can see the similarities. image

Yes, I think it does accept the theory of evolution, or at least has no objection to it.

" In the 1950 encyclical Humani generis, Pope Pius XII confirmed that there is no intrinsic conflict between [Roman Catholic]  Christianity and the theory of evolution, provided that Christians believe that the individual soul is a direct creation by God and not the product of purely material forces.[1] Today, the Church supports theistic evolution(ism), also known as evolutionary creation,[2] although Catholics are free not to believe in any part of evolutionary theory."

No. The Christian churches deny it.

Well, T(h)ink was again faster - lol.

Yes, we tend to forget that modern humans are also mammals:

with a common link to the above mentioned "Paeungulata" (Elefant, Manatee and Dugong, Hyrax)

and most other mammals, except for monotremata and marsupials, which split at an earlier stage:

i.e. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Placentalia

and
