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 and they read definition 2 or 6b, instead of 1, 3 or 5.
