Liberal Interpretrations...

A Reform or refined interpretation of Genesis is that each day of Creation is a Commenerative Day. That is, it is the beginning of a form of life, but the full expression of each form is expressed in Genesis. For example, plants began first 1.3 By ago. But Genesis also mentions trees and flowers. Other passages in Genesis can be used to justify this interpretation.

However, even allowing for such a liberal interpretation, Genesis does not account for 5 days of extinction. It seems that if there is Intelligent Design, the designer uses trial and error.

I would reply to that by saying that you are being too specific as to the creation methodology used by the Creator and is not overtly mentioned in Genesis. All that is mentioned is that God commanded "the earth to bring forth..." life, and one has no way of knowing if by this statement earth is a little naturally selective in its methodology which is instituted by the Creator.
