What does "EVOLUTION" mean to Eric Hovind?

Evolution in the scientific sense is defined as: the historical development of a biological group (as a race or species) : phylogeny b : a theory that the various types of animals and plants have their origin in other preexisting types and that the distinguishable differences are due to modifications in successive generations

Eric's definition of evolution seems to be: philosophical naturalism devoid of my particular god and therefore excluding all things supernatural. (see ATHEISM)

For someone who claims to be an educator, the fact that he doesn't even use the word "evolution" correctly should be disconcerting. My best guess is that he knows full well that he's misusing the term, as he so seductively changes its meaning as the video progresses.
