Correct.

Evolution doesn't necessarily break down when considering how life began, as we do not yet know how life began (abiogenesis) in the first place. Two things, while somewhat related, are completely different fields. Evolution picks up after the first living thing appeared, and goes on till this moment.

So, I argue M@r's point that you cannot believe in both evolution and god. I personally find it unlikely, but there is no proof to support or deny the thought that a god of some kind may have created the first lifeform, and then evolution took over from there.
