i dont think evolution is behind, we are just very impatient for nature to do something we barely understand.

There isn't enough of a concentration of oxygen in the air we breath to support dinosaurs, or man-sized bugs. The huge animals from the past likely died out because the oxygen concentration started dropping and they were no longer able to get enough to survive. A single modern ant can live 100 times its body weight. If that ant were human size it would require 100 times the amount of oxygen a human needs and since there isnt enough oxygen to support it, it would suffocate and die.
Lack of oxygen lead to smaller creatures, that required less oxygen, to survive. Over millions of years the creatures that were able to adapt to the changing environment survived, which is why everything alive today is suited for our current environment.
There is no need to insert a divine being, or a designer in to the mix. The creatures of earth adjust, or die when the world around them changes. This is all done naturally without any outside influence, so there is no need for a designer. This process is what we call evolution.
What's the ops hypothesis
what are you proposing as truth?
While the huge ones died off?
