Which it doesn’t.
Who created the stars that go nova?
I personally see no reason why God is prohibited from creating a universe that then runs according to His rules and produces results that even He might not have anticipated. This includes, IMO, the possibility of his using evolution as one of his tools for generating diversity in the biological world.
I think of it as the physical equivalent of free will in intelligent beings.
Yeah, but even the angels warned GOD that the 'free will' thing could get way out of hand.
