despite the fact that it occurs everyday all around us and can be proven quite easily, evolution is still argued. Why? The reason we constantly update medical prescriptions, the reason birds have different length beaks, the reason nearsightedness is becoming more and more common, and numerous other examples of speciation can ALL be attributed to evolution, yet some refuse to accept it. Why? I ask not from a cynical point of view, but from a sincerely curious nature.

I don't think anyone argues that the world is evolving. However, if you're talking about "evolution" as opposed to "creationism," then there will always be arguments pro and con. There is no "irrefutable proof" on either side and so everyone will believe what they will believe. Personally, I think we can believe in both - God creating the world and the world continuing to evolve under His watchful eye.
This Just because you can prove that is happens in the current day doesn't mean you can prove anything about how it all started. They are two different things.

Why? B/c everyone is entitled to their own opinion. No matter what is presented as fact, we all base receptive knowledge on personal opinion. Does one WANT to accept or believe a fact? To some ppl evolution cancels out the Creator of mankind(God). If an aspect of religion or spirituality has been proven to an individual as factual revelation, then there is no reasoning or questioning evolution or any opposing argument. I think it may be mental translation of mind over matter, or in this case opinion over evidence.
I hope you understand
