I have read that Darwin's departure from his belief in God (which he had) and Creation, to his Evolutionary model is in part due to his observations of cats and wasps.
Cats often play with their prey after capture, seemingly torturing them to death. Wasps lay their eggs inside of caterpillars. The eggs hatch and eat the caterpillar alive as they develop and hatch, slowly killing the caterpillar.
From this, Darwin determined there is no God, because no God would make creatures whose design would intentionally cause other creatures to suffer unneedlessly.
