I do not believe it is a misunderstanding on the part of the professional
creationist who originated the argument. I think "deliberate equivocation"
would be a better description of that behavior.
That the scientifically ignorant are taken in by the equivocation is not,
however, surprising. The target audience of the professional creationist
scam artist is very used to arguments from authority and tends to take them
at face value. And, unless you KNOW the basis of this equivocation, the
fallacy will slip right in.
Paradoxically, nearly all real events are highly improbable
