There may be a more elegant way to do this, but here's one way:
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem,amsthm}
\setenumerate{label={(\arabic*)},leftmargin=.75in}
\newcommand*{\OR}{\hspace{3em}or\hspace{2.1em}}
\newtheoremstyle{logic}%
{3pt}{3pt}{\normalfont}{}{\bfseries}{.}{\newline}{}
\theoremstyle{logic}
\newtheorem{theorem}{Theorem}
\begin{document}
\begin{theorem}
If all cows are spherical and either:
\begin{enumerate}
\item the moon is made of green cheese,
\item \OR there are canals on Mars
\end{enumerate}
then pluto is a planet.
\end{theorem}
\end{document}
