Well, if the dinosaurs really were destroyed by an asteroid (as current theory suggests) I don't see how any God, powerful as they may be, waking up one morning and saying "Well, it's time to destroy Earth again." That asteroid didn't just appear 50 miles above Earth the day it landed: its matter was around at the Big Bang, just like everything else's. Its orbit just happened to take it into Earth's atmosphere. This means that if a sentient God really did create and destroy the dinosaurs, he had it all in mind from square one. You can't just redirect an asteroid's path in space: given enough information, you could have predicted the collision with earth 5 seconds after the Big Bang happened. So, if a true Creator does exist, it would be impossible for it to make any mistakes past the original configuration of the universe.
