I think the writer is applying definition 1b. And if that's the test, then I too, believe evolution.


Ah yes, but creationists (in their "fudging the truth until it feels good" way) only read the definitions that fit their views. Type in "theory" at www.merriam-webster.com and they read definition 2 or 6b, instead of 1, 3 or 5.
