Regarding this: "You cannot argue that evolution occurs. It can be created in a laboratory, in our very own DNA mutation, and through observation of nature."

This is not the point of argument, when you speak of what is done in a laboratory and observed in nature. Micro-evolution is embraced by all creationists that I'm aware of. Some people take issue with the concepts of macro-evolution and common decent. Evidence for micro-evolution is usually presented as if it demonstrates macro-evolution. It's an equivocation with the term 'evolution'. With regard to evidence, it refers to micro-evolution, but with regard to views being promoted, it refers to macro-evolution. The issue is whether or not the evidence justifies the views people promote, and that issue is rarely addressed directly, it's usually just assumed.
