What is the evidence? If it is knowlege, then nothing has been gained for thought and belief are knowlege. They are unable to challenge themselves. Only that which is not thought, knowledge or belief can challenge them.
So, what can challenge thought, knowledge and belief?

I prefer to rely on observation and interpretation built on solid theory. They provide no guarantees of providing the correct answers but they have a good track record of explaining how things work so far.

There are perfectly plausible explanations for evolution so unless someone offers a better alternative they look like the best bet.

This is perhaps one of the dumbest, if not the dumbest subject ever discussed on this forum. To be more specific, reincarnation is strictly for idiots. Furthermore, it's a supreme insult to Charles Darwin to even suggest a connection between reincarnation and evolution.

This only makes your case weaker.

But you have no knowledge of evolution or reincarnation.
You have evidence for nothing that you claim.

I have this belief that Evolution and Reincarnation are related in some way.

When evolution started the ones who had ambition to develop and evolve they then reincarnated into that form, so for example an ape who had ambition to walk on two legs died and then after death evolved into an ape who could walk and so on and so on.

In human life I believe that humans who want to improve, get better and be ambitious will eventually succeed whether its in the current life or the next. People who don't return backwards and keep going backwards until they change, once they change they go through evolution again.
