So if the earth is billions of years old, and not all species existed for the entirety of that, what mechanism do you ascribe to the appearance of new species? God came down at various points in the epochs of Earth life and created them from nothing?
So you think God has no power over random processes? That God’s infinite power stops at the Casino door? That God could not or would not use random processes in nature in order that all things fulfill God’s will?
Prov 16:33 The dice are cast into the lap, but every result is from the Lord.

("Wealth is EARNED not distributed, so how could it be redistributed?")
I would say, AMD, that He created organisms out of existing elements, which in turn came from God's will out of nothing, as we would understand it. At which point He willed any or all of the myriad creatures into existence is uncertain. But I do not believe that there ever existed a time in which birds could not fly, insects did not pollinate, mammals did not perform intercourse as we know it today, nor one in which spiders could not spin webs. The entire fossil record reveals *completed* species.
Also, I do not believe in a “randomness” of God's design. God-created forces, and free will among creatures, does produce randomness to an extent unknown to me, however. Cordially, Bob
