I think god was preoccupied with persecuting lutherans during that time period.
Either way, I know some people really love and admire evolution but I think it sucks. It is amoral (worse than amoral since evolution invented pain, suffering and the concept of evil. To be fair I guess, evolution also invented love, mercy and joy. But negative is stronger than positive for organic life) but also inept. In a couple hundred years human technology has already created devices that are stronger, faster, sturdier, better hunters, harder to hunt, etc than anything evolution can or has created. Within 100 years our machines will be smarter than anything evolution has ever created. Compare that to the 3.8 billion year timeline of evolution.
