What kind of God would make creatures whose only function seems to be devouring and feeding upon other creatures? Sir Dave Attenborough, who has produced the acclaimed Life on Earth and Living Planet series for BBC, states it this way:

“When creationists talk about God creating every [type of animal] in a separate act, they always instance hummingbirds…and beautiful things. But I tend to think instead of a parasitic worm that is boring through the eye of a boy sitting on the bank of a river in West Africa, and [I ask them]. 'Are you telling me that the God you believe in, who you also say is an all-merciful God, who cares for each one of us individually–are you saying that God created this worm that can live in no other way than in an innocent child's eyeball? Because that doesn't seem to me to coincide with a God who's full of mercy.'”

Evolutionists do not believe that all creation has developed a fallen nature. Creatures originally created to live in harmony have become deadly competitors. Mankind chose to reject God and died spiritually. It is only by being “born again” that this spirtual union with God can be restored. God cursed creation as an act of mercy. It would have been intolerable for fallen mankind to exist in the midst of perfection. Furthermore, God has given us the ability to prevent and cure many diseases (when we choose to spend our time and resources to do so). At times He even provides supernatural healing. Most importantly, God has provided a pathway to spend eternity in paradise after our short time here on Earth. God became human in order to take the penalty which we deserve. What more could He have done?
