That's because the first two definitions you have are pretty good ones for
TE and the last one is merely the strawman you prop up from time to time.
The difference between definition one and definition two is whether you are
a theist or a non-warfare non-theist. So, if you are discussing TE with
people on this list -- I am assuming we are all theists here -- then assume
"theism accepting the limited explanation of biological evolution" as a good
working definition of TE. If you did that our discussions here would be
much, much more profitable.
