Some interesting points in this video.

He disproved Theistic Evolution in 2 minutes. Pay attention.

No he didn't. He used a basic set of assumptions that proponents of theistic evolution don't use to argue against theistic evolution.

People suffering from insomnia should have his voice on repeat though. :P

This.

That has got to be the most boring video I've seen in awhile. Give me a Dawkins or Hitchens any day over that guy. At least they'll keep me awake.

What basic set of assumptions? I don't think those could be called assumptions. If there is a creator who has already created the world whether it be 6,000 or 13 billion years ago, creation is done, completed. Therefore, if it's complete, evolution is unnecessary. Evolution implies that creation is NOT complete. Did God create an incomplete world?

Evolution is simply a measure of change.
It's possible that a God created a universe, and he created a set of rules by which that universe would change throughout time, and evolution is simply an emergent process of those rules that were created.

Your argument is straw-manning theists. They do not assume that God created a universe and didn't intend that universe to ever change.

Just correcting myself - evolution isn't a "measure" of change, it's a "process" of change. Just like all other processes [gravitational acceleration, movement, etc].
