Evolution is nothing more in the change in allele frequencies over a period of time. Evolution has nothing to do with mutation or the origin of life.
You can create evolution in a lab, just not the way you suggest. Take a fast breading species and design the environment to select a specif trait in the species, after several generations that trait will dominate.
Mutation was not necessary in the least..
Evolution was around long before Darwin. The Greeks even wrote about it. Darwin just made it understandable.
Also it must be noted that Darwin had two theories proposed in his book, "The Origin of the Species". One in the general theory which is widely accepted the other is the special theory. The special theory states that the general theory can explain the origin of life, which of course it cant.
