Yes to God can do it anyway He wants. Whether God was some harried busybody creating every detail of life I don't know. Probably not. Seems to me God makes living things, including other beings of a high order. Maybe they had something to do about the blueprints of life. Everything (biological) on this earth appears to have been designed, and that at certain distinct stages. Thus blue-green algae to condition a proper atmosphere. When that is ready then the introduction of most of the forms of life...all at once. Later we have mammals and the environment that they are best suited for. Almost as if the earth was being specially prepared for us.
I have stated my theological opposition to ToE. Simply that it discounts and stands in opposition to the doctrine of original sin and redemption. That may not mean anything to you. But if I accept that premise, then eventually I have no need of a Redeemer. It is why much of Christianity is weak. Just like the early Church, once you dilute the truth with the surrounding pagan belief systems, you loose the power and miracles of the early Church. You get the Dark Ages. Same thing IMO. You accept false theories, the pagan theory of ToE, of our day (disguised in the Priestly robes of science) and you weaken and eventually destroy your faith. You go ahead and do that, I refuse.

"I have stated my theological opposition to ToE"
To bad that has nothing to do with biology. Did you ever consider the theology is off base?
In any event, having you talking about theology and unable to admit any science that contradicts it is not worthy of discussion. I would advise you not to participate in threads where science is involved and you might lose your "faith".
You also might consider that if biology destroys your faith, your faith may need some improvement. It is illustrative of what I have noticed about many on your side of this "debate". They are afraid to accept the facts of science because they are afraid they will lose Salvation.
If they really understood Christian theology, they would know God's Grace does not work that way. It matters not if you believe science or not, you are only saved through belief in Jesus Christ.
God doesn't care if you think yom is 24 hrs or the Ark was real. He doesn't care if you think evolution was created by Him , either. He only cares about one thing.
