One of the arguments in the 'God would never have done that!' pile concerns extinction. After all, natural history is replete with a variety of now extinct species. After all, what kind of God would create various species - with or without an evolutionary process - only to let them die out?
I think this argument is pretty terrible, but for the moment grant that it makes a point. All I ask is the following.
Would this damage the aforementioned argument? Or even raise the prospect of that argument dying altogether in the future?
