When it's said that God created mankind "in His own image and likeness", that's generally understood to mean that humans have a spiritual essence, or soul, if you will.

That seems reasonable. But then why all the fuss over evolution? Evolution don't care 'bout no souls. The assertion I hear from many (most?) Christians is that we were created as-is in the form of the Creator. This would include a "spirit", I would think, but also clearly is about the actual physical form.

Clearly you are not in that camp. Polls seem to indicate about half the population is. I wonder if that half thinks God has genitals and nipples? (Again, it's really a pretty trivial question. The main interest is in how people think about the question, not the question itself, IMO.)
