We, as a species ourselves, seem to believe that dinos and land masses and civilizations and planets and universes just "popped up" overnight. We seem to forget that everything comes forth over time. I am talking about very long periods of time in every case.
Our very own civilization is the result of an ongoing, excruciatingly slow process of evolution (I don't mean from apes) that is at the core of everything in the universe.
I am okay in believing that a non physical, non gendered "source" was responsible for the slow creation of ALL species, just the same way we, as the human creator species, have created all sorts of specific breeds of canines. You want one with a flat nose, long tail and stripes like a zebra? Well, give me a 100 years and thru a series of specific breeding standards, I can create that for you.
Here is a conundrum for those that still like to think of a long haired, grey bearded "guy in the sky" creator that loves you if you are good but sends you to hell if you don't follow the guidelines. So this god knows all, created all, knows the outcome of all, is responsible for the end of all, created all the details of all and knows in the end (all knowing) what you are ultimately going to do in the end. He has a grand plan of a perfect eternity that is all planned out by his inspiration....hhhhmmmmm.....
Tell me why he created your feared devil in the first place...."He" already knows the outcome and it certainly wouldn't be very smart for an intelligent creator to create an opposing force that works against his own perfect force, now would it.
The intelligent creator would create a wide open plain full of grass. Then create antelope to eat it. Then would create cheetahs to eat the antelope. Then would create vultures to clean up the mess...etc., etc., etc.
Everything is in existence the way it is cause.....that's the way it is...
Sleep well... All is okay...

actually a lot of creationists take the stance of an early earth and the extinction being due to the noahic flood....that explains the mass extinction...it doesn't explain the dating of the fossilized remains...which...well...imo isn't 100% scientific....it remains to be seen just HOW ACCURATE these modern dating methods actually are.....
