"My view is that god wishes us to do as much as possible on our own. That is referred to as the minimum energy principle of god that seems to control the whole universe according to physics. That is why god uses evolution to accomplish his/her ends. It is the most energy efficient way to do so."

It's an interesting idea, but seems inconsistent. Will you admit the idea needs to be revised? Human beings, small as we are,
are able now to tinker with DNA. Why would God need to wallow in the Age of the Dinosaurs for 160 million years when all that was needed was to change the order of the base pairs, trim a few mechanisms here and there, to make Y* and M*?
